Cleeve lose at home despite Want’s half century
PUBLISHED: 11:50 26 July 2017
Cleeve lost their latest league match at home to Bedminster.
Having won the toss, Cleeve skipper Glenn Lewin elected to bat first against Bedminster seconds, backing his side who have piled on the runs at home this season.
Sadly, only three players made double figures including opener James Cole with 10 and Mike Luker with 22 batting at no 8. It was left to the big hitting all-rounder, Mitch Want to blast his way to yet another robust half century, out for 61 to include eight fours and two sixes, leaving Cleeve all out for 136 in the 25th over.
In reply, despite Lewin’s attempts to try out nine bowlers, Bedminister never looked in any trouble, knocking off the runs in just 30 overs for the loss of just one wicket.
A frustrating day at the King George V playing fields leaves the side needing a victory away to Midsomer Norton on Saturday to stand a chance of gaining promotion this year.
The 2nd XI’s away match at Alveston was cancelled due to rain.
