Travelling away against title favorites Blunham was always going to be a tough start to the season, and so it proved as Blunham took full advantage of some poor bowling and a tiny ground. Kanchana Rodrigo and captain Connor Heaps both scored quick fire centuries, Rodrgo scoring 166 in just 134 balls and Heaps scoring 113 in 99 balls. Poor Michael Pickard must of been cursing, being the only man out when he was bowled by Adrian Cade.
Cade could only bowl 1.2 overs, before injury saw his day brought to an end. He may of been the difference if he had stayed fit, as only Steve Brown and himself were able to bowl at under 5 runs per over.
Blunham final total of 310 was always going to be a tall order to chase down. And so it proved with only 3 batsmen getting into double figures. Ash Wells batted well for 70, getting to his half century with a brutal heave over mid-wicket and Matthew Slack looked good before being caught for 32.
In the end the 2nds were bowled out for 172, losing by 138 runs.
Despite this, it didn't stop John Wells celebrating his sons half century in style!
