2’s unable to close the gap

18 Jul 2017 - Tom Parsons

Sevenoaks vine visited Tunbridge wells in a game which would see them move to 2nd and closer to leaders Tunbridge wells. Twells won the toss and decided to bat first. Johnson and Richardson opened the bowling and an early breakthrough came when Richardson removed the Twells opener. Johnson at the other end was bowling tight only going for 6 runs off his first 6 overs. Twells rallied after the loss of there first wicket running brilliantly between the wickets frustrating SVCC and a brilliant teasing delivery from Bevan Thomas brought the stumping from C.White of the Twells batsman who was scoring fluently. Wickets were proving elusive for SVCC and finally came at the end of the Twells innings when Johnson removed a batsman who had scored a good 100 and another batsman both with teasing slower balls.
The Vine started their innings with aggression openers Thompson and J.White batting nicely until both got out in quick succession from good bowling by Twells. Unfortunately for the Vine the discipline of bowling from Twells proved to be the downfall for the Vine but plenty of positives to be taken was taken from the game, youngest player H.Bevan-Thomas only 14 bowled brilliantly and scored 23 not out and oldest player on the day for SVCC was 25 the young Vine team sit in 3rd position in the Kent Premier 2’s League.
