Chargers bat first

The Chargers welcomed Liphook & Ripsley Ladies on Sunday for a Group B league match. Liphook won the toss (well, actually it was rock, paper, scissors!) and chose to field.

Opening pair Becca and Trace got the match off to a fantastic start with 34, including 7 4s from Becca. Next up, Abi and Kirsty partnered to add 18.

Third pair Al and Amy worked well together to get 25, including Amy’s first 6. Despite the loss of two wickets, new partnership Nicky & Pippa, added 8 as the 4th pair. Our last pair completed the 20 overs and added 25 runs with the loss of one wicket. 

The Chargers finished on a net score of 382 – their highest score to date!

Bowling masterclass from Abi!

Bowling duties were shared across the team, as Liphook opened their batting. 

There was some fantastic bowling on display today, with a particular special mention to Abi, who bowled 4 overs and only gave away 8 runs, achieving an amazing economy of 2. Well done Abi! Chargers took 5 wickets including 3 great catches and last over bowl out from Trace. 

Liphook finished on a net score of 307. Meaning the Chargers won their second match of the season by 75 runs! Huge congrats to the team. 

Player of the match was Becca, for her 7 boundaries and a safe pair of hands to take a great catch on the boundary. 

A big thank you to Paul for umpiring (and opening the bar!) and to everyone came along to support.

Match: home to Liphook & Ripsley Ladies, 26th June.
