HCC on Tour

Monday 5th September 2022

Hardingham were on there holidays as they went of to North West Norfolk on a mini series of Thornham and Terrington

Saturday, skipper Greg Harding went out for his first time skippering in senior cricket and loss the toss; we'd be fielding first. Despite Thornham's good start thanks to Linsell and Woodcock, wickets started to fall regularly with Kelly picking up 3, Subedi, J Fowle, Harding and Ali all picking up one a piece plus two incredable run outs. In reply, Hardingham were off to a shaky start with Halstead, Harding, Sparkes and A Melton going cheaply. Kelly offered a little resistence and managed 10 before being bowled. However and strong partnership between R Fowle and J Ali. R Fowle hit a half ton with Jubar Ali hitting his maiden half ton in his career. With both retiring, this left Leicester and Holmes to sweep up the rest of the run to confirm victory for the tourists.

Day 2 and off to Terrington we went with Melton taking the reigns, winning the toss and opting to bowl on a damp wicket. A really good start with ball in hand saw TSC 44-4 and 79-5 with Hale taking his first ever wicket. Despite this TSC batted extremely well and put many balls in the neighouring fields for 6. Innings finished 232-8 with J Young scoring a quick 50 with many useful knocks around him. Hardingham, despite an early wicket, were off to a strong start with Subedi and S Palmer scoring well, however some poor batting and running between the wickets saw a collapse from 95-1 to 127-7. Some resliant batting from Kelly and some more power hitting from Subedi saw Hardingham finish 190-9 and confirmed defeat on the final day for the tourists.
