Fernettes open their batting

As the Fernettes opened their batting, the Chargers knew they had their work cut out for them and were determined to restrict their runs.

Some tight fielding and bowling kept the run rate low to keep the Chargers in contention. However, the Chargers weren’t able to rack up the wickets to reduce the Fernettes’ score, despite a great effort in the field.

The Fernettes finished on a net score of 299 to win the match. It was a great match against a lovely team, who are also the 2022 winners of Group B. Huge congrats to the Fernettes on a great match and great season.

Post match, the Chargers enjoyed a bottle of fizz, kindly given by the Fernettes – it did help to dull the loss a little! Thank you Farncombe! 

Chargers’ player of the match was Sophie for her excellent bowling and hard work in the field. Congrats Sophie! 

The Chargers finished 4th in Group B on 72 points this year, having won 4 matches, lost 3 and drawn 1. Congratulations to the Chargers on their 2022 season.
