TEENAGE batsmen Will Legg and Fergus Nutt both passed 50 before PEPPARD STOKE ROW KITES saw
TEENAGE batsmen Will Legg and Fergus Nutt both passed 50 before PEPPARD STOKE ROW KITES saw their home clash with WOODLEY abandoned due to rain on Sunday.
The Kites won the toss and elected to bat but lost U13 Ed Bruun early on before the more experienced Gary Legg was caught by the hosts captain Max Baker-Smith, who guested for a Woodley side for whom two players arrived late.
When Ed Atkinson departed the Kites were 55-3, but Legg â€“ who made 85 including 14 fours and two sixes â€“ and Nutt redressed the balance by adding 94 for the fourth wicket.
Legg missed out on a deserved century when he was bowled by the spin of Vivek Bohara, but James Hern kept the runs coming.
Nutt hit 61 before he was beaten for pace by Asim Farooq. Satheech Elaganathan hit a quick-fire 18 not out to take the Kites to 236-7 from their 35 overs, before rain ended the contest with Woodley 20-0 after 3.4 overs of their reply.
