Match report 

On a bright afternoon St Michael's entertained a young Overstone side and on winning the toss decided to bat on a wicket that looked firm but a little damp.

Simeon Tinant and Dale Harrison made slow but steady progress against some tight bowling and excellent fielding with Tinant making joint top score of 27 and Harrison a useful 19. All the batsmen were finding runs hard to come by on a wicket where the ball was keeping low and although Matt Collier and Will Kingston chipped in with useful runs it was left to Danny York (27) and Ian Geddes (18) to set a decent target. When they were eventually out the lower order failed yet again, not helped by 2 run outs. 

The Overstone reply started disastrously with Swann having Morrison LBW early on for no score, and with Baker also taking wickets at regular intervals the top 5 fell with less than 20 runs on the board. There was some resistance from Paul McDowell and Umesh Patel lower down the order. Darren Shelford prolonged the inevitable with a few lusty blows until Baker came back to remove him with a ripsnorter to finish with an excellent 6 for 14.
