|A beautiful setting for village cricket|
Nocton’s wickets are always unpredictable and this one was no exception. Fast bowling wasn’t needed and both Dylan Garfoot and Mikey Atkinson reverted to spin. Bracebridge’s opener, Ollie Bentley, is always a dangerous batsman and has scored heavily against us in the past but Atkinson removed him without scoring. The rest of the Bracebridge team batted very cautiously, played few attacking shots and scored hardly any boundaries (mind you, the grass was a bit long near the boundaries!). They only made it to 60 all out after 32 overs with the wickets being shared equally amongst the Nocton bowlers.
