1st XI v Oundle
Sunday, September 8
Saranga Rajaguru starred once
again as the
Sunday 1st XI put their home season to bed with a convincing 98 run victory
against bottom club Oundle at The Avenue.
Sri Lankan just missed out on his sixth century of the season, when he was out
trapped in front for 96. But he made no mistakes in the bowling stakes when he
picked up his fourth five wicket haul of the summer in the division to head the
league bowling charts.
Again the left-hander's runs came in quick time - 16 boundaries (including a
'six') in a 93 ball stay at the crease. That was the outstanding contribution to
the 205 all out total, in which Ben Chapman also scored 22.
After teenager Kian Pooley and acting-skipper took the openers out, Rajaguru
bamboozled the rest of the visitors batting with his leg-spin, returning figures of 6-18 ...his best of
the season! A brace from James Harradine sealed Oundle's fate as they were
dismissed for 107.
March 1st XI 205
all out, 44.5 overs (Saranga Rajaguru 96, Ben Chapman 22), Oundle 107 all out,
23 overs (Saranga Rajaguru 6-18, James Harradine 2-26).
Man of the Match:
A great result with yet another top performance from Sagi.
