The match had swung back and forth, with Andrew’s carefully constructed century, Jonathan tearing the heart out of the Straggler middle order, with three wickets in an over and final figures of 7 for 46, and the extraordinary opening spell from Eliot and Finn, conceding a mere 19 runs from the first 13 overs. Ferocious fielding also kept the SAC batsmen honest, but dropped chances seemed to pass momentum back to SAC. Jonathan and James upped the tempo; the modest Straggler score of 199 now seemed inadequate. Just in time catches were held, acrobatically by Bart, and the arm of Will undid an other attempt to steal a run. It all went down to Finn’s final over, two wickets required, and then the final ball. Block for a draw. With a toe crunching yorker delivered in the best Waqar style, the bruised number 11 was undone by the finger of Barry. Fantastic game of cricket
