The Men in Black Cricket Club got off to a winning start in their first ever game, beating the highly fancied Walnuts by 1 wicket in the College on Friday.
After electing to field, the newly formed MIB put the Walnuts under a lot of pressure. Some great tight bowling, throwing and fielding by Pete, John and Jack restricting the Walnuts to a total of 109. With MOM Bobby leading the charge – supported by Tom Cadell – it was left to Des ‘Sobers’ Thornton to guide the MIB to victory with some Usain Bolt (after he pulled his hammer) style running between the wickets.
The MIB are here to stay and will be looking for Test status in the near future.
