POYN­TON .................. 190-2 MAL­PAS .......................... 79

POYN­TON re­sumed their win­ning ways with a dom­i­nant dis­play against strug­gling Mal­pas.

Open­ing for Poyn­ton, Simon Dunn car­ried on from where he left off the pre­vi­ous week, tak­ing ad­van­tage of some in­con­sis­tent line and length to reach 20 from his first nine de­liv­er­ies. When he fell for 40, to leave the score on 51-2, Mal­pas were prob­a­bly feel­ing quite happy with the way things were go­ing. But the South Cheshire side didn’t bag an­other wicket.

Adam Wil­liams (85 not out) and Damian Stringer (58 not out) duly added an­other 139 runs to­gether, con­cen­trat­ing on build­ing the part­ner­ship at first, and then ac­cel­er­at­ing the scor­ing well, es­pe­cially Adam Wil­liams, who hit seven fours and three sixes in his ca­reer best innings.

Af­ter seven wick­et­less overs in re­ply, Jimmy Wil­liams then struck three times in four balls, in­clud­ing a su­perb div­ing caught & bowled. When a run out mix up led to a fourth wicket soon af­ter, the rot re­ally had set in for Mal­pas.

Aside from Muhammed Asif Khan, who made 31 not out, and last man Rob McMinn who sur­vived 27 balls, there was pre­cious lit­tle re­sis­tance there­after. Jimmy Wil­liams bagged the last wicket with the score on 79, end­ing with 5-27, while Tom Ham­nett showed the ad­van­tages of bowl­ing full and straight with a 3-14 re­turn.
