14th July 2018- vs Stonesfield (away) lost by 2 runs.
Stonesfield won the toss and chose to bat first and on another typical Stonesfield road of a track their openers put on a big partnership for the first wicket. Change bowlers Alimar Kahn (5-52(below) and Ian Headley (2-57) took a stranglehold of the middle order but Stonesfield rallied at the end Jamie Wiles (1-34) having a difficult start with the ball but recovering to bowl well at the death as Stonesfield set Westcott 239 to win.In reply Westcott started brightly with Rehman Ullah (30) dealing in boundaries only and an excellent knock from Tony Burcham (59) laying the platform, Alimar (38) continued the momentum before being caught when on top. As the match got ever closer Pete Smith (22) and Paul Cherry (21) hit boundaries to keep us in with a shout as the final over approached but with a good final over for Stonesfield Westcott fell 2 runs short ( if only decisions had gone our way!!!).
We get ever closer ! On to next week at Wolvercote.
