A 20:20 Community League team defeated The Misfits at Dial Hill, Clevedon.

The Misfits Cricket Club, based in Clifton, Bristol returned to Dial Hill, Clevedon, to be entertained by a team comprising of players from the eight teams competing in the 20:20 Community League.

The Misfits batted first, but an early wicket was taken with a diving catch at first slip by P Hancock in the first over, which seemed to set a precedent with four further catches, reducing the opposition to 65-5.

The middle order settled down with a good partnership between B Howe and C Lang. However, the introduction of C Grey and Z Munna stemmed the run rate and the total scored was 115 at the conclusion of the 20 overs.

In response, J Shepherd and T Donkin settled down to a formidable bowling attack from the Misfits, taking singles where they could. After losing a couple of wickets, the introduction of E Dunn and M Lowis, supported by P Hancock, they quickly reached their target with three overs to spare.

At the Champagne moment, thanks were extended to The Misfits, the scorers, Chris and Paul Wilkinson and the bubbly was awarded to Mike Lowis for, in the words of The Misfits captain ‘’Possibly the best catch I have ever seen in 20:20 Cricket.”

On Sunday, Clevedon Utd FC take on Swiss Valley at 1pm and the Gig Club entertain the Old Inn at 4 pm. All support will be warmly welcomed.
