Indoor Update

Posted 18 January 2016 15:58 by Jono

Happy 2016 all!

All three indoor teams have been in action since the New Year.

Last week the C team put in a solid performance against Old Gaynes, but it wasn’t enough to get the 12 points. Charlie Puncher smashed 51 of Rainham’s competitive 80, and Jamie Eacott bowled a very tight spell of 1-1, but Old Gaynes made the target of 81.

The A team followed up against Dagenham and conceded a formidable 110-2. Only Sid Patel was able to take a wicket and every bowler went for 7+. Staring down the barrel of defeat, Jas led off with C team hero Charlie Puncher and both made quick retirements to put Rainham in a great position. Skipper then tucked in with an unbeaten 29 to guide Rainham to a great run-chase victory.

Yesterday the B-team were in action against a strong-looking Hornchurch, who batted first and made 87. Abdul was the pick of the bowlers with 1-12 from his allotment. Jas stepped in and continued his good form with the bat with 32 but it was not enough with no other players making double-figures as Rainham fell short of the target by 33.
