Bowl­ing let­down af­ter bats­men did well

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

SEEVENT OVER-60S CHAM­PI­ONSHIP Kent sec­onds 163-3 Buck­ing­hamshire sec­onds 162-8 Kent won by seven wick­ets LACK­LUS­TRE bowl­ing cost Buck­ing­hamshire dear in a limp de­feat against Kent last week.

An early wicket from Amer­sham Hill’s Chris Tucker aside, the hosts bat­ted smoothly to reach Bucks’ rea­son­able tar­get with seven wick­ets to spare.

It was a dis­ap­point­ing game for Buck­ing­hamshire, who re­cov­ered man­fully from 16-3 af­ter win­ning the toss and elect­ing to bat.

Lead­ing run scor­ers Roger Gar­rini and Steve Cole­man, who both play for Penn and Tylers Green, can take much of the credit for keep­ing the match com­pet­i­tive, putting on 80 runs for Bucks be­fore be­ing dis­missed (Gar­rini for 39 and then Cole­man for 42).

Penn and Tylers’ Terry Bent­ley (28 not out) and Tucker (16) helped Bucks reach a sat­is­fac­tory 162 off their 45 overs, but the score was ev­i­dently not quite enough.
