Match report

A good all round display saw St Michael's make it 2 wins out of 2 after Irchester II were dispatched on Saturday.

Batting first, the visitors made the worst possible start when the stylish Faisal Omarji was bowled by Potter without troubling the scorers. Stability was restored with Matt Collier and the evergreen Alan Bartley putting on 38 for the second wicket before Collier was caught off Pike for 24. A solid stand then ensued between Bartley and skipper Will Kingston. With 35 of the scheduled 45 overs bowled, the score of 122 for 2 looked like a good platform. And it certainly was as 100 runs runs were bludgeoned off the last 10 overs. Both Kingston and Bartley tucked in early to some tasty bowling, one over off the hapless Cotter going for 19 runs. A late blast by slogger Tom Marlow added insult to injury as the Irchester fielders trudged off the pitch knowing a target of over 200 would be tough to challenge.

The home side made a solid start with the Irchester top 3 laying down a solid platform. However the rest were unable to build on this as the middle and lower order succumbed to the St Michael's attack. Tom Marlow bagged another 4 wickets, and was ably supported by the youthful Malcolm Swann and Ian Geddes with 2 and 3 wickets respectively.
