Beddington 146 All Out (48.3 0vers)
Sunbury 148 for 5 (37.4 overs)
Sunbury won by 5 wickets.

Having lost the toss again Beddington skipper was asked to bat. The regular opening pair of Antony Down and David White set about giving Beddington a good start but alas Down played on to Sohi and departed for 1 and the score on 8. In came skipper Simon Lewis and soon followed Down when he gave bowler Smith a catch which he duly took and departed for 3.

​ Kyle Moolman joined White and set about repairing the damage but with the score on 37 White departed for 21 when caught by Gregory off Smith. In came Bevan and the pair played sensibly and without too many risks proceeded to push the score along at a steady rate. However, in the 31st over Bevan departed after being caught by Gregory for 33 and the score on 97 for 4. This was compounded further by the dismissals of Cummins and Chmielinski to leave Beddington on 104 for 6 in the 39th over. With the heart of Beddington’s batting ripped out it was going to be down to Moolman to get Beddington to a decent score to defend. But this was not going to be the case as first Butler departed and then Moolman was caught for 47 to leave Beddington on 127 for 8. Despite a couple of boundaries by Jonathan Williams the end soon came as Beddington were bowled out for 146 leaving Williams stranded on 11 not out.

After Tea the Sunbury opening pair of John Maunders and Sean Ventham looked to chase the target down but in the 4th over Ventham was bowled by Bevan for 2. This brought in Adam London to join Maunders and chase this target down. A bowling change was made and Jack Rogerson and in the 14th over he had London adjudged LBW for 19. In the 20th over he had further success in bowling Burgess for 9 leaving Sunbury on 78 for 3. Rogerson added the further wicket of Bedi by having him stumped by White for 12 to finish with figures of 3 for 52 off his ten overs. The further wicket of Roland Jones off the bowling of Cummins gave Beddington a bowling point but Maunders saw Sunbury home in the 38th over with an unbeaten 68.
