A day to forget for the 1st XI. Gt Rissington CC came away with the spoils after bowling out Cam for a meagre 97. The visitors picked off the runs with 16 overs to spare, winning by 6 wickets.
On brighter news, the 2nd XI came away from Ruardean Hill CC with their first league win of the season. 3 wickets a piece from Chris Browning (3-32) and skipper Chris Wilcox (3-36) were the pick of the bowlers as the home side made a target of 180 to chase. Runs shared from Denis Booth (54), Craig Mills (39), Martin Booth (35) and George Parrott (34) saw Cam 2nd XI over the line with two balls to spare and won by a 4-wicket margin.
The 3rd XI are still searching for the 1st win of the season as they came up against top of the table Quedgeley & Hardwicke CC. The hosts set a mammoth 315 and despite the daunting task Cam can be proud of their efforts with the bat. Lewis Baker starring with a quick fire 81, featuring 8 x 6s. There was also valiant support from Cameron Moore (43), Ben Lane (34) and Ben Edwards (29). Unfortunately, the asking rate was just too much in the end and Nathan Allen’s side fell 79 runs short.
