The second T20 of the week was against DCC, again with Tom Grant in charge, and plenty of Queries on both sides. Queries won the toss, batted first, and then lost Jack Bramwell to the first ball of the game caught by Tom Pike at slip.David Bromley took the game to DCC but until he was joined by his brother Pat when we were 4 down, his partners couldn’t match his hitting power. He finished with a creditable 84, Pat with 31 and we ran out of overs with a below-par score of 138.
DCC had a similar start, and were still in the 50s after 10 overs but when skipper Parker joined Michael Kelsey, they put their foot on the accelerator and upped the run rate. It took them just 19.1 overs to clear their target and Queries had lost by 8 wickets. One wicket apiece to Hugh Norman and Pat Bromley.
It was great to see Vaughn Williams again, back in Wiltshire for a half term weekend: we watched Tom Pike bowling really very well and hope to see him in Queries colours this season: and perhaps Dom Shearn and Michael Kelsey will be persuaded to play some Queries cricket this season. They would both be very welcome.
Thanks to Tom Grant for raising two sides for two T20s in one week.
