Well finally at the third attempt this season we avoided defeat with a narrow win over Bodleian Library. Batting first we scored 172 for 7 based around a partnership between Sameer (63) and me (70). In reply an unusually strong Bodleian side were cruising nicely on around 120-0 before a disastrous run out and then regular break throughs saw them needing 17 to win off the last over. Even Nigel striding to the crease couldn’t deliver and we won by around 12 runs.
Notable was the three father son combinations in the BPCC side and the results of our youth policy with Will Cox and Matty Doran bowling very well in combination, batting of Will Oxborough and the donut deserving fielding of Joe West.
