Falcons Sussex Slam Match Reports
Wednesday 2nd June v Findon Horses
We went up to Findon for a T20 game, in what proved to be a run-fest. Findon batted first and dominated the early bowling. However, Joel Butler bowled a terrific spell picking up 3 wickets and just putting the brakes on Findon in the last few overs to give Ferring a chance, Findon finishing on 176-5.
In response Ferring lost Jonathon Bond early, however, Matt Walsh and Matt Ward settled things down, with Matt Walsh taking on the fielders with lots of quick running, before retiring on 50 not out. After a couple of lofty blows from Chris Adkin, Cameron Baldock joined Matt Ward and put in a captain's performance, smashing a very rapid 52 not out before also retiring.
This left Ferring needing just 6 off 5 balls, with Matt Ward still anchoring the innings but stuck at the non strikers end. When Sudantha Da Silva hit 2 off the next ball it was down to a run a ball, however he was out a Da Silva hit 2 off the next ball it was down to a run a ball, however he was out next ball, and when Matt Ward tried in vain to steal a quick single to get on strike and was run out for 33, Ferring still needed 4 off the last ball. It wasn’t to be, Ferring fell just short on 174-4.
