IN A rain affected match against the visiting INVALIDS, TURVILLE PARK enjoyed a game which delivered 326 runs, divided equally between the two teams in an absorbing tie on Sunday.
Turville had the opportunity to hit the winning runs off the last ball but Neil Runkel sacrificed his wicket.
Invalids struggled to 163 off their 45 overs on a pitch that had a soggy outfield.
Charles Henry took the new ball and delivered a fiery opening spell while Neil Runkel controlled one end for 15 overs, snaring 4-34.
In reply for Turville every batsman got a decent start, but then failed to do better than Harry Beardall’s 31.
Fortunes fluctuated and Invalids appeared to have gained the upper hand until Colin Simon and Nick Henry quickly restored the hosts’ advantage in an innings that saw several umpiring decisions go against Turville.
