Pangbourne back to winning ways

On a sultry, hot afternoon, Pangbourne welcomed Sonning CC to Big Side, up at Pangbourne college. Normal service resumed with Dan losing the toss and Pangbourne were asked to field.

Sonning got off to a good start in the first few overs, before Dan broke through, with a ball that got through the gate, after going wider on the crease to angle it in. With an end open Pangbourne started to take wickets every couple of overs, with Charlie Wheeler being the star of the bowling performance, extracting some devilish movement, both through the air and off the pitch, ending up with four wickets. As a result Pangbourne restricted Sonning to a meager 100, bowling them out within 35 overs.

In reply Pangbourne got off to a nervy start losing some early wickets and at one point were 4 down, with not a lot on the board. However, Charlie Campbell and Dan steadied the ship, slowing building towards the target, never really looking troubled. Charlie hit a few lusty blows, a huge six over mid-on being a highlight. Pangbourne reached the target with overs to spare to record a good victory.

Next up, the derby, against Whitchurch!
