It was third time lucky for the Strikers at the weekend, as they finally got their season underway with a match away to Farncombe.

On what feels like the first gorgeous sunny day this year, the Strikers, captained by Cath, lost the toss and went into bat. The team were up against some great bowling from Farncombe, making it tricky for the batters to get into their stride. After 16 overs, the Strikers finished on 227, having lost 7 wickets.

As Farncombe went into bat, bowling duties were shared amongst the team. There was some great fielding and communication in the field, as the team worked hard to try and limit Farncombe’s score. After 16 overs, Farncombe finished on 325 without loss. Congrats to Farncombe on the win.

To celebrate the sun, and a great game of cricket, Farncombe kindly treated the Strikers to a bottle of fizz, cheers!
