Bicknell picked up a wicket with a solid catch by A. Jacobs. Late big-hitting from Eton batsman ended their total on 129/2.
Batsman J. Arnold and H. Bicknell opened up for TWBS. Sharp speed from Eton opening bowler pinned H. Bicknell out LBW unluckily in the first over.
Rebuilding, W. Moss and J. Arnold gradually increased the run rate. Wickets kept falling and TWBS were 30/4 and in trouble – W. Moss and M. Ventner trying to keep ticking the board over towards the total. Wickets continued to fall although some late hitting from W. Moss (pictured) put his total past 50, aided by some well-placed shots from P. Brant and H. Pritchard. However, TWBS fell short and finished on 91/6. It was a good all-round effort from TWBS. Nice ground to play on and a day we’ll all remember!
