There is nothing like a drinks break to interrupt the flow, and for Standard Athletic at Belmont, the drinks break removed the shackles from Ben Bowles, and saw Theo flourish with abandon. The run rate for the previous 60 overs has drifted along at a miserly 4 an over; Theo arrived at the crease, and despatched a flurry of boundaries to upset the bowling plan. Ben, who had been carefullyy picking out the field with frustratingly well struck shots, turned the protractor and found the gaps with equal power. Four became seven, and teh Stragglers cruised to victory.
