Selkirk v Peebles County Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 27 Apr 2013 at 13.00
Peebles County Cricket Club Lost by 9 wickets

Match report by Paul Murray.

County got off to an inauspicious start to the season with a nine wicket defeat away at Selkirk. Emerging from hibernation after a cold winter and with little practice, Selkirk were not the opposition they would wish to have confronted this early.Freshly promoted Selkirk were a young, fit disciplined outfit.
It was certainly a brave but perhaps arguably a questionable decision on County's part to bat first, and alas the wickets were soon falling as County's openers headed back to the pavilion.

There then followed what looked like a potentially promising partnership between Knight and former club superstar Darren Chatt making a guest appearance.
Tragically, just when both men looked comfortable, a bizarre run out left Chatt stranded and the moment passed.

Knight did well to dig in and bat on and ably assisted by Jordan Chatt managed to put a few runs on the board. There were however no less than 5 ducks and this state of affairs will have to be addressed quickly if County are to survive. Teams have been dismissed for less than 64,but this was not to be one of those days.That said, all Peebles bowlers did perform well, the fielding was tight and enthusiastic and although Selkirk got the runs in few overs and little time, they were made to work hard for their victory. Wicketkeeper Pace demonstrated an agility and dexterity behind the stumps which it is to be hoped will continue. It is unlikely that County will face this quality of opposition
every week, but there is a lot to do especially in the batting department.
