NVC Match Report – Foxton

Langleybury were outfoxed in batting, bowling and fielding by Foxton CC on Sunday in Round 6 of The Davidstow Village Cup.
Foxton won the toss and were 10 runs to the good after one over. A run out opportunity was missed early on that would have seen the Foxton opener, Cei Sanderson (123*) back in the pavilion for a low score. He continued to ride his luck with 2 further run out opportunities missed and 2 catches dropped. This allowed the other Foxton batsmen to play around Sanderson and reach a total of 225 for 5 after 40 overs, with 119 coming off the last 15 overs. The only Langleybury bowlers who came out with any credit were Luke Samarasinghe with 3-25 off his 9 overs and Richard Oxley with 0-20 off 6 overs.

Langleybury couldn’t have started any worse, with Mo Manzoor bowled off the 3rd ball of the innings. This was followed by a silly run out when Nahim Amin turned for a 2nd run at the bowlers end and was run out by a direct throw from long on, when there was never 2 runs. At the halfway point Langleybury matched Foxton with 78 runs, but had lost 3 more wickets. With scoreboard pressure wickets tumbled and Langleybury were all out for 111 in the 32nd over. Only Will Oxley came out with any credit with 34.

Best wishes go to Foxton in the quarter finals.foxton1foxton2
