Marchmont 2 v Peebles County Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 28 May 2011 at 1300
Peebles County Cricket Club Lost in the long grass

Match report A strong P2 side were taken down by superior bowling and a tendancy to collapse.

Having lost the toss they started well enough before their skipper lifted his leg (allegedly) and was stumped. Murray P held the innings together with purpose, as all around him tumbled. And then came The Loft, who hit the ball with the power of Samson before his haircut. Suddenly the score leapt into a position of respectability. Hope resurrected from the ashes of the higher order only to stumble and fall after Murray P's departure. The weather, it must be said, did not help, as hail stones and a biting wind endevoured to weaken resolve. This being Scotland, teeth were grit and the game went on. Brrr..!!

Marchmont batted with admirable concentration against a P2 attack that deserved more. Harith Ramachandran never took a risk and never looked like getting out. His was an innings of refined technique that wrapped up the match with an ease and grace that can only be applauded.
