Form in victory
also (off a no-ball), but after these momentary slip-ups, they both put on a batting exhibition, removing any doubt of not reaching this slender target
Birchall began to motor with a couple of maximums along the way, and Porter wasn’t far behind as he cleared the boundary a couple of times himself. Both batsmen honed in on their 50s as Macc’s victory was now a matter of time. They brought them up soon enough and the 100 partnership, but the win was to wait a little longer as Macc stuttered ever so slightly.
Birchall was caught behind off the spin of Grindley for 50, Tudor came and went off the same bowler for 2 and then Porter was caught for 51, also off the slow leftarmer. Macc did then eventually.cross the line, for the loss of 3 wickets inside 18 overs, winning by 7 wickets, and taking an important 25 points.
Next week Macc are back in action at home to Upton in a 1pm start at Victoria Road.
