Thrilling win in last over

11:13 24 July 2014

●ContinUED from the back page.

The late middle order rallied.

However, Mills (2-29), Doble (1-24) and the return of Plowman ensured wickets continued to fall and the run rate was kept in check with the innings coming to a close on 157-9.

The post-tea run chase suffered an early blow when opener Parkin was trapped leg before for a single with the score on six!

Messom (54) and White (33) then batted superbly for the next 15 overs stoking the ball to all parts of the ground until both lost their wicket in quick succession, each falling to a catch behind.

However, three down and one run shy of 100 with 25 overs remaining, it was the Otters who were in the box seat!

The hosts, protecting their proud season-long unbeaten record, had other ideas and hit back - in style!

Four wickets fell for the addition of just three runs as May, England, Marley and Mills all fell.

Youngsters Joe Gore (19) and Ed Doble (14) dug deep to begin the fight-back, but Doble became the eighth wicket to fall and his demise, with the total on 127, saw Plowman come to the wicket.

Having been struck on the back by a delivery being returned to the stumps he swiftly claimed retribution despatching the next two balls to the boundary for a total of ten runs!

Gore fell with the run chase just three runs short of success! That brought young James Doble to the wicket to join Plowman.

With four balls remaining in the final over and the scores level, Doble and Plowman went for what looked a ‘suicidal’ single.

However, fortune was on their side for a miss-field enabled them to scamper home for a bye to secure a famous single wicket win.

Plowman trooped off unbeaten on 19 whilst young Doble, with one to his name, had played a huge part in proceedings.
