Weekly Roundup

Welcome to this weeks round up from Penn CC

Staffordshire Club Cricket Championship Knockout, Semi-Final Report

Tuesday night saw Penn CC 3rd XI take on Pelsall at Pelsall Cricket & Sports Club.

Another strong team travelled for Penn with little changes made to the team from previous rounds giving them a great opportunity to progress through to the Final.

Pelsall won the toss and elected to bat on a clear summers evening on a dry, quick outfield.

Pelsall started well reaching approx 80 off the first 10 overs.

The Penn bowling attack then tightened the run scoring and restricted the next 5 overs for very little but with some abject fielding throughout and some loose bowling at the finish, Pelsall reached 161 off there allotted 20 overs, about 30 runs over what they should have made.

Penn looked to sprint out the blocks, and with a decent run rate to stick to there didn’t look to be a problem as Mandeep Singh started to find his swing, hitting 60 odd off next to nothing until falling to a good catch at Mid-on and ably supported by an important an commanding 69 by Tom Bywater.

After that the wickets started to fall and with some poor striking, the runs started to dry up going into the last 5, leaving us needing about 24 off the last over, this was going to be a big ask.

Pelsall finally finished the innings with Penn 15 short of the Finals day and feeling as though on another day and with more conviction in the field they would have won it.

Promising signs though from the 3rd XI who are unbeaten in the league and chasing promotion. Lets see how they finish the year and if they can replicate this years tremendous cup run in the 2015 season.
