06-05-2017 - Away - TVL - Stoke Green vs Finch

Disappointment at Stoke Green

Finch 2s got life in TVL Division 1 off to a disappointing start away at Stoke Green. On a relatively grassy/green looking deck Stoke Green won the toss and had no hesitation in choosing to bat. Matthews and Augustus got Finch off to a good start with some accurate bowling from Dylan Augustus and some dangerous looking swing bowling from Liam Matthews. After a few wayward deliveries Liam got Finch on the board with three quick wickets and gave Finch a real look at the Stoke Green middle order. But even with a very steady ten over spell from Woodford (0-38) Stoke Green scored relatively freely throughout the middle overs to put themselves in a good position to post a competitive score. Some good death bowling from Lane and Augustus (3-62 and 4-50 respectively) restricted stoke green to 273 from their allotted overs.



The experienced Lane and Loveday opened up for Finch and got the team off to a reasonable start with some aggressive stroke play from Russell (41) supported well by Gary before he unfortunately dragged one back onto his stumps. Simon Bell went soon after in a similar fashion and the middle order also fell at regular intervals leaving Finch an uphill task. Josh Lincoln batted very fluently for 47 supported well by Wroot (45) but the top order left the middle and lower orders a little too much to do which left Finch falling around 70 short but walking away with a respectable 10 bonus points. Finch host Cove at home next weekend hoping to get their first win on the board of the 2017 season.
