Rain didn't stop play for Knutsford CC 1st team

By on July 6, 2009

Unfortunately for the visitors, the Groves then mounted an assault on the Knutsford bowling attack and were 134 for 1 from 26 overs. After rain caused a minor delay, the hosts declared on 195 for 4 (Evans 62 not out and King 80), leaving Knutsford 48 overs for the run chase.

The Groves struck early in the Knutsford innings, removing skipper Storrow for a duck in the second over, off the impressive Crawfield (6 for 12). The visitors then slumped to 31 for 7 before Cook attempted to resurrect the innings with a plucky 33, including 2 sixes.

However, when Cook departed, Knutsford were 87 for 8 and batting out the remaining 12 overs for a draw the only prospect to save the match. Despite a resilient 26 not out by Sheridan, Garvey claimed the last wicket and with it the victory. The Groves 25 points, Knutsford 3 points. Next Saturday Knutsford travel to Stalybridge St Pauls.
