So as promised here are some pics from the Lashings World XI game yesterday. They are all of the chase as I was a little busy chasing orange cricket balls into Babylon hit by Yasir Arafat.
Lashings opened up with The Destroyer, Devon Malcolm
The chase of 150 began quickly with Tom Morton scoring freely, this was a pretty big hit
The star of the show, unfortunately for all in ear shot, was James Hayward who struck a quick half century
Usually a good player of spin, one of those to get the treatment was England veteran John Emburey
James Hibberd joined Hayward for a while adding useful runs
But a late flurry of wickets, with Hayward falling to Emburey and Devon Malcolm picking up Hibberd caught behind by Lou Vincent saw the game get close
A few more wickets fell, and Owen Alsop contributed before it was left to Ryan Burl and yours truly to finish it off in the final over.
A good day, albeit cold and wet, and a good win for the boys.
