Plummer top scores with a not out performance in narrow defeat

10 July 2017

SMMA lost the toss and were asked to bat at the Wray Crescent Arena.

The top order got off to an aggressive start, with boundaries being hit with seeming ease by Manny, Oscar Plummer (30 not out), Oscar Clarke and Finn T-M. At one stage 130+ looked on.

Wickets and tight bowling by top of the league Highbury Grove pegged SMMA back to post a competitive total of 89-3.

A strong start from the Highbury Grove openers got them off to a flier, but in a similar manner to the first innings, key wickets ensured the run rate slowed down, with the final boundary being hit with only 1.2 overs of the innings remaining.

This was a valiant effort against the previously unbeaten Highbury Grove, who went on to win the Middlesex League in what must surely have been their closest game of the season.
