Manningham Club 2nd XI Bowl Their Way to Victory Over Canterbury

The amazing batting form of the 2nd XI continued into round 4 with the Eagles getting rolled for only 143 in 56 overs on their home ground against Canterbury. The only highlight of the innings was the partnership between tag team keepers Dan Coloe (51) and Cal (41). Aside from these two, the only other efforts worthy of note were from Fallshaw and Rushy who both managed to get bowled while leaving it (Fallshaw is still in denial about it actually happening).

With 21 overs to bowl on day 1, French and Day opened up with The Wolf taking 2 wickets in his first over (Including a catch off the back of the bat that carried to first slip), leaving Canterbury 2/0. Frenchy earned a well deserved wicket after having 2 catches dropped off his bowling. Danny took another one leaving Canterbury in all sorts at 4/48 at the end of day 1.

Day 2 arrived and Frenchy had taken the the whole container of angry pills as he ran through the Canterbury middle order to finish with 5 wickets....along with 5  send offs send offs that were not required. The week break between days had proven beneficial, with the catching significantly improving; including a superb catch down leg side from Cal. With Rushy claiming the last 2 wickets, we were able to wrap things up 20 overs into the day, and go support the 1s in their close finish.
