BUNGAY recorded their fourth straight victory on Saturday, beating Norwich C by 41 runs. Although a comfortable victory, Bungay visit in-form Great Melton tomorrow in a match where they will need to raise their performance to a much higher standard.
BUNGAY recorded their fourth straight victory on Saturday, beating Norwich C by 41 runs.
Although a comfortable victory, Bungay visit in-form Great Melton tomorrow in a match where they will need to raise their performance to a much higher standard.
Bungay captain David Fuller won an important toss and elected to bat first on the hottest day of the season so far.
The pitch started slowly after the overnight showers but there was still plenty of pace in the outfield, and opening partnership of C Fuller and the returning M Watts began confidently.

Although Fuller went for four, Watts was looking in good touch as he made the most of the conditions, and after 10 overs the home side were 37-1.
Lewis had early luck when he was dropped at mid-on and the missed chance proved costly as Watts and Lewis played fluently to both pass 50 and add 92 for the second wicket.

The partnership was finally broken in the 25th over when Watts was out lbw to Hoskins for 59, and at 102-2, Bungay had a good platform.
However, Hoskins also removed York without scoring and when Lewis was out for 56 Bungay stuttered and lost wickets at regular intervals.
Steve Davey attempted the recovery, launching two sixes in a quickfire 18, but when he was bowled Bungay were bowled out for a below-par 189.
Bungay knew they needed to start well and Lewis carried on with the ball where he left off with the bat when he had Hoskins caught at mid-on for a duck.
Bungay applied good pressure with D Fuller and W Lewis bowling good lines, but it was the introduction of York who first had Burton caught for 25 and then the big wicket of Vaughan first ball.
Boothby continued for Norwich but York continued to take wickets and finished with 5-22, including Boothby for 26. Norwich never looked like attempting to chase the small total and eventually finished the 45 overs on 148-9.
