JONES SHINES AS NARKOVIANS PIP I.C.I.

Wooburn Narkovians defeated I.C.I. by four wickets on Sunday, with 14-year-old Nick Jones hitting the winning bondary off the last ball of the match.

Wooburn won the toss, but with a young side, opted to field and I.C.I. got off to a flier with Hewitt and Inderjit punishing anything slightly wide of the stumps. After only 8 overs I.C.I. had raced to 45, but then James White got Wooburn back into the game when Inderjit mistimed a straight hit and he took an excellent caught and bowled. Hewitt carried on his onslaught but was bowled by White as he slashed at a straight delivery.

Rob Rogers replaced Richard Barker, who had struggled with his line, and immediately put the brakes on the I.C.I. run rate. Jim Cornish then replaced White and helped to tie down the batsmen, picking up four well-deserved wickets, all caught. But Baig and Windall got the innings back together with some hard legside hitting, and managed to get the total up to a very respectable 206 off 47 overs.

Wooburn did not have the ideal start as Matt Curtis was caught in the gully first ball, but White and Dave Rogers then had the partnership of the day, neither batsman really looking in trouble, as they put together a stand of 90. When Rogers holed out to backward square leg it brough his brother Rob to the crease, and Wooburn carried on accumulating at a steady rate. White eventually mistimed a drive and was caught at extra cover just one short of his 50. Dave Appleby joined Rogers and immediately joined the attack, hitting Windall for a lovely four and Baig for a straight six.

Rogers was finally stumped as he danced down the wicket to Windall, but Barker carried on where he left off, taking nine from Windall's next over. The dismissal of Appleby by Baig brought young Nick Jones to the middle. Barker quickly fell to the pace of Baig, and Cornish joined Jones. These two batted superbly, 14 year-old Jones growing in stature with every shot. Wooburn needed 20 from the last three overs, and aided by some superb shots and sloppy fielding, one run was required from the last ball. Baig steamed in to the young Jones, who carved the full pitch ball for four to seal a dramatic win in a tremendous game of cricket.
