Copthorne made 113/5 after an hour and a half of batting.
Our top scorers: Duncan 26
We decided to make a fair game of it and declared after an hour and a half. We
could have batted further and forced a draw, but this would have cut down on
the time we had to bowl Brambletye out. This proved costly in the end.
Brambletye made 115/5 with 20 mins to spare.
To their credit, Brambletye scored their runs much more quickly than we did;
they took many a quick single. This is something that we need to add to our
game to improve our scoring rate.
Our best bowlers: James 2 wickets for 12 runs in 3 overs
Ryan 1 wicket for 5 runs in 2 overs
Josh 1 wicket for 15 runs in 3 overs
Max also picked up a useful wicket for us.
Well done lads; we were very competitive in our first timed game of the
season. We will be better in the next one!
