Last Ball Finish at The Policies

By

Game goes to the wire.

Reduced overs matches – this one to 42 overs – make tough games to judge. Nevertheless, a focused, positive attitude was around the side all day, most notably during the final delivery with a stunning catch from Fennah to win the game.

West had 26 overs batting as if it was a full game before rain. At the break the score was 82-3; on track for an above par total. After losing eight overs, West scored another 51-3 in the next 12 overs, then kicked on at a run a ball. The highlight was 56 for Kleiveldt, although Young (28) and Oliver (22*) also provided valuable runs. The final 157-7 was adjusted to 165 by DLS.

Uddingston batted well for an opening stand of 117, surviving a couple of close calls but making the most of the chances to take control. However, four wickets fell in seven balls and the entire tone shifted. The next 10 overs saw 27-3 as Fennah, Brown and Farndale used the pitch to bowl to well-set fields. At this stage, West were favourites.

But Uddingston clung on, and going to the last ball with five needed the game could have gone either way. Fortunately, the final shot allowed Fennah to show his calm under pressure and the result was a win.

West were slightly ahead for much of the game without running away with it. Uddingston had a chance to close the game and did not take it. While some will say it was luck, there is little doubt that smart captaincy, a confident side and very good bowling were also crucial factors.
