Cricket: Three wins in a row for Waddington

Waddington won by six wickets

Waddington Cricket Club made it three wins in a row after beating Heckington by six wickets.

Waddington won the toss and elected to bowl on the same day as their World Cup family fun day on Sunday.

James Wright started his spell with a wicket maiden. On what was a great afternoon of bowling from Wright he finished his 10 overs with five maidens and two wickets, whilst only conceding seven runs.

James Husband also picked up 2 wickets from his 5 overs finishing with 6 for 2. Joe Raw was also in great bowling form with 4 wickets from his 3.2 overs.

Waddington’s excellent bowling display saw Heckington finish their innings on 42 all out.

Heckington’s bowlers gave a good account of themselves with youngster Robbie Townsend taking two wickets, getting one maiden and conceding just 11 runs in his six overs.

Waddington lost wickets steadily, but were guided home by stand-out performer and opening batsman Ben Skilbeck. The hosts also displayed great sportsmanship as Levi Mobbs walked after a feather of an edge that the umpire had not heard.

Waddo finished on 43/4 to complete their third victory in four matches.
