Much of the damage was done by a fabulous opening blast by Harrison and Elliot which left the Vine reeling on 3-4. In fact some thought the game might be over before the England World Cup game started. That didn't happen as the Vine recovered somewhat but ended up on 89 - 6 with another steady bowling and fielding effort. Only 2 wides were bowled which is a far cry from earlier in the summer. Aside from the opening bowlers, other notable performances came from Ollie 1-7 off 2, Ben A only 7 runs off 2 and Bear only 9 runs off 2.
In reply we had another first - Ted was actually dismissed after 6 undefeated innings. But no matter as Bear and Henry stood up and made their 25s playing very sensibly putting away the bad balls with aplomb. This left Artie and Elliot to see the hosts home comfortably with over 4 overs to spare.
Result: CHCC win by 5 wickets. Far less tension than the world cup game which followed.
