Colts Bs Cricket v Brambletye

    Copthorne made 113/5 after an hour and a half of batting. 

    Our top scorers:      Duncan    26
                                      Jamie      19
                                                       Oliver      18

    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!
