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.
