Target too much for Prestbury batsmen
PRESTBURY CC BILL LIVESLEY
ON a glorious summer’s day Prestbury travelled to Hale Barns where they won the toss and elected to field.
Hunter (42), Fernando (46) and a 54-ball 71 by Iqbal put Hale Barns in the driving seat with 227-7.
A great effort by Julian McGovern for Prestbury saw him bowl right through the 23 overs and take 5-89. Aquell Ahmed took 2-70.
Prestbury never got going batting wise, however, with only Conor Hibel (26 not out) and skipper Tom Livesley (23) looking likely to get set in.
A brief cameo from Chris Hall (16) saw him reach double figures, but they fell short of the target.
This weekend Prestbury take on Malpas.
