Ealing CC 2nd XI vs North Middlesex CC 2nd XI

By

North Mid beat the E-men.

In a weekend of ridiculous and enthralling sport, Ealing welcomed defending champions North Middlesex to Corfton Road.

Winning the toss on a used deck, Fairs elected to bat first, and was immediately regretful when Good lobbed his second ball to short cover.

At 0-1, and facing a bowling attack hungry to re-enter the North Mid 1st XI, fears of recent batting woes once again resurfaced.

Steadfast knocks from O’Malley (39) and Rhys-Williams (50) set a solid platform for the lower-middle order to come in and have a go at setting a competitive total.

With some good bowling and lack of clinical batting, Ealing struggled to 220-8 from 50, a confident declaration. It was therefore imperative that the bowlers did their job.

It has been rare this year the bowlers haven’t been up to the task, but occasionally, the unit doesn’t fire. This was one of those rare days.

After a dispute over ends, it took both Glasper and Tendulkar a few overs each to properly find some rhythm. Although picking up one apiece, the North Mid batsmen were scoring easily and were served up enough poor deliveries to punish to the boundary.

Fell replaced Tendulkar and although bowling well, only claimed one scalp, and with Faraz and Dewhurst struggling to settle, it was only a matter of time before North Mid wrapped up an easy victory, ending up 3 down with 7 overs to spare. The home side were left wondering what didn’t happen this week, especially after such a convincing win at Osterley in week 9.

Simply the better side on the day, a deserved victory for the visitors. With a run of very winnable games coming up, Ealing look to return to winning ways away at Hampstead next week.
