Gutsy Sutton denied at the last
A REMARKABLE game between Wisbech and Sutton produced some memorable batting, outstanding fielding and a staggering 500 runs
A REMARKABLE game between Wisbech and Sutton produced some memorable batting, outstanding fielding and a staggering 500 runs.
In the end however, it was Wisbech who emerged victors by 30-runs as Sutton eventually ran out of overs in what was a thrilling run-chase.
A Sutton side fielding only nine players had to endure until 114 runs were on the board before a wicket finally fell but to their immense credit the side stuck to their task and managed to keep Wisbech’s scoring down to 265-6 at the close of the innings.
Spencer Saberton had the most joy with the ball as he collected 3-45 from his seven overs. Rob Braybrooke’s 1-40 in difficult conditions was also worthy of note.
Requiring an almighty 6.6-per-over for the win, Sutton look destined for a heavy defeat after three wickets fell for just 29. With outright belligerence however, Sutton redoubled their efforts and led by Braybrooke (63) and Saberton (92*), who clattered a quite remarkable 13 boundaries, they put themselves in with a chance of a most unlikely victory.
