Match report Applibloodycation!

P2 needs to dissect, digest and duplicate the message after throwing away an excellent start against a Marchmont side that offered little in the way of loose deliveries. Rosco Waddell hit his first half century with admirable assurance and The Mighty Swanster sparked an electric 30 before holing out on the boundary. Amongst the rest only the reliable Tools made it into double figures. Silly shots, mishits, lapses in concentration and a suicidal run out left P2 stranded at 136 for 10 on a decent pitch that was only going to help the batsmen.

Marchmont 2 lost a couple of wickets before passing 50. Alan Renwick, who went on to make the highest score in the match, was dropped at long leg early on, which, for veteran P2 watchers, smacked painfully of deja vu. Ali Max was wildly off target with his quickies, improving a tad when exhaustion - he had run a half marathon before the game - forced him to resort to medium paced line-and-length, while, at the other end, Kie Ramsay had never bowled better. The first change duo of Swanny and Paul O were as sraight as a widow's parting and the fielding was better than expected. Despite these positives, M2 applied themselves - they had dissected, digested and duplicated to a considerable degree - and, with patience, chipped away until the job was done. It was a well deserved victory on a glorious summer's afternoon in Edinburgh.
