KMCC vs Ripley C.C.

Shameless Ripley handed narrow victory by the weather



 In a match ruined by the weather Ripley scraped home by 4 wickets mainly due to a lack of sportsmanship arising from their inferiority over KMCC in previous encounters. Ripley won the toss and inserted Kirkby who made slow progress as a constant drizzle fell at the KMCG - just as Iain and Duncan upped the rate in the 30th over with the score on 57-2 the players were called off for rain. Ripleys refusal to take an early tea (fearing a Kirkby onslaught) reduced the match to 35 overs and a farce. KMCC were able to scramble to 75-4 at tea

 The Ripley batting showing all the panache of a discarded fish and chip wrapper stumbled to their target with only 4 wickets and no pride remaining. Duncan took 3-31 and the plaudits in a miserable game.
