Pirton CC v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 01 May 2016 at 1.30pm
Saracens Cricket Club Won 4 wickets

Match report Saracens kicked off the 2016 season with an exciting win at Pirton. Whilst sunny, there was a cold wind but it did not deter the Sarries from a good all round performance. Cabbie Driver excelled with 3 wickets and some tight bowling, well backed up by 2 wickets each for Bun and Jenks and Jonny Harris on debut, and a good wicket from Bal. Highlight was a good catch from Chris to dismiss their high scoring opening bat. Good work also behind the stumps by Woody on a wicket with erratic bounce. 180 to get. Worst possible start with last years leading run scorer Woody out first ball of the innings to a nip backer. However Dinghy and Jonny Randall steadied the ship. Both scored excellent 50s in taking the score to 80 for the second wicket. Then the usual collapse losing 5 wickets quickly before skipper Jenks and Jonny Harris took us confidently to victory with 4 overs to spare. An excellent days cricket

W award - flipper Bunyan for a magnificent double somersault with twist when chasing the ball. Would have graced any Olympic vaulting competition
