On what seemed to be a batting paradise TWBCC won the toss with captain Ben Edwards making an edgy call to bowl first.
The decision was looking to be the wrong one with opening bowler Fergus Fairbairn conceding 10 runs off his first over, James 'Dos' Freeman coming on from the the other end decided to counter act his opening partners rather expensive over by delivering his team a wicket maiden in the second over of the match. Things started to turn around for the borderers from here with Fairbairn taking a wicket in his next over where the collapse of the little common ramblers began. By the time Freeman and Fairbairn had finished at 7 overs a piece the Little Common Ramblers looked to be struggling at 46-7. Then came senior player Nick Edwards to the crease, within 11 balls Edwards hadn't conceded a run and had two wickets to his name. Just 16.5 overs bowled and a short stint in the field Borderers were looking at a target of 55 runs to win. Freeman 4 wickets, Fairbairn 3 wickets, N Edwards 2 wickets, a run out to Rob Teague and an absolute screamer of a catch at square leg by Tom West. Borderers had seemed to put their best bowling and fielding performance of the season to date all into one match, all they needed now for a complete match was the batting.
A steady start saw borders cruise to 16 without loss before Ben Edwards unfortunately missed a straight one clipping the top of his leg stump. This sent keeper batsman Ross Jefferies to the crease. 2 overs later opening partner Teague was caught out for 11 sending Will Edwards in for his first match of the season. Edwards - known for his power hitting - did not fail to impress smashing 15 not out from 10 deliveries. Jeffries looked steady at the crease before he was unluckily caught out only 7 runs short of victory. This sent in form batsman Tom Fantom out to the middle, with an excellent opportunity to add to his already impressive average Fantom was able to hit the winning runs with borderers chasing down the total with 7 wickets to spare.
A great day at the office for the senior team boosting them one spot up the ladder to 2nd in the table. An excellent performance to bounce back from their game the week before, onwards and upwards for the Tunbridge Wells Borderers.
