West Midlands Police Vets C.C. v Lichfield Nomads C.C.

Nomads lose to the Vets

It was a good day with sun ☀️ and rain ☔️ both. Nomads scored a decent target of 160 in 30 overs. Unfortunately all players couldn’t bat but first 6 players contributed well. Inaam & Jon partnership was fantastic. Inaam 50 made a big difference in total score. Opponent was comparatively younger and more energetic. Their bowling was average but opener (don’t remember his name) was a good batter. We missed his 4 catches and gave him full opportunity to settle down. Our bowling was bit weaker today. Taran & Sam did a good job but overall every single bowler was expensive. This is cricket 🏏 really. Not every day is same. We shouldn’t be disappointed or down. One of the day. Please keep your moral high and come with positive mindset in future games. We learn from our mistakes and this is the beauty of the game. I am certain we will come back and perform well in future games. Nomads gave their best but it wasn’t our day today. Thank you
