Lichfield Nomads v WT Parker

Lichfield Nomads 201 for 7
WT Parker 189 for 8

Nomads survive scare to defeat Parkers.

An impressive fightback from Wheeler almost secured an unlikely victory for WT Parker. Nomads batted first and set a competitive 201 for 7, from their 40 overs, mainly thanks to 87 from Gardner. It looked like it would be a comfortable win for the Nomads as wickets fell regularly and the rate was up to 8 an over. Wheeler had other ideas and a barrage of powerful pulls and drives saw Parkers get uncomfortably close to the winning line. The experienced Fearon and Heslington bowled out the final overs and kept the pressure on the batsmen. In the penultimate over, facing Fearon, he played on to his stumps via an inside edge and pads and the chance of victory was gone. Heslington bowled out the final over without drama to seal a 12 run victory. The Nomads breathed a sigh of relief after notching up their third win of the 2008 season.

Some sharp fielding contributed to the win. There were excellent catches by Pickering, Hussein, Greaves, Hughes (his first caught and bowled for the Nomads) and Fearon running round to mid wicket off his own bowling! The ground fielding by Hussein was also exemplary and there was a sharp run out after a good stop and throw by Fearon. Graeme Blackburn's second stint at wicket keeping was top class and showed a dramatic improvement from his debut at Shugborough.
