1st XI v Ardingly
After winning the toss Wilson's started well but after Arjun was run out we lost momentum and it was only when Ellis (64) came to crease, supported by Luke and Daniel that Wilson’s regained their composure and obtained a competitive total of 228 off 40 overs. At 64 for 4 Wilson's were in a commanding position to win the game. Solid batting from the Ardingly middle order helped them steady the ship. Wilson's continued to take wickets but when their No 8 batsman came in he changed the game and produced a match winning 56 off 22 balls.
15A v Ardingly
After winning the toss Wilson's elected to bat. On a difficult wicket Hriday batted until the 15th over displaying calmness and composure to try to hold the innings together. Zain (27) top scored and Wilson's were restricted to 85 off 20 overs. Chasing a relatively low total Ardingly were always favourites. An excellent spell from spinner Neel saw the run rate stall but it was not enough to stop Ardingly winning by 6 wickets.
