This was the second attempt to play this match, it having been rained off two days earlier. Once again played in the archaic 15 x 8 ball over format (what’s wrong with a nice modern T20???) Ley Hill won the toss and decided to chase, putting Ruislip Victoria into bat.
They were completely destroyed by our bowlers in just 11.3 overs, the wicket takers being Chris Morris (4 for 5 off 3 overs); Lewis Thompson (3 for 4 off 2.3 overs); Henry Sussum (1 for 14 off 2 overs) and Jack Thompson (1 for 22 off 2 overs). The only Ruislip Victoria player to get into double figures was Ravi Aujla who scored 13.
In response, it took Ley Hill just 9 overs to score the winning runs. Top scorer was Ben Woodbridge with 24 runs, followed by Craig Peterson with 17, 5 for Ben Moultrie-Ford and an unfortunate duck for Lewis Thompson. Fareed Gulchin took the two Ley Hill wickets.
Ley Hill now go forward to the Eastern Area Final, which is being played at Ley Hill on 2nd July against Coleshill.
