In a 30 overs a side match Whitstable won the toss and allowed Lille to bat first. After a quick start Lille raced to 16 without loss in the first 2 overs however the Whitstable bowlers found their line and length and started to take wickets at regular intervals. Lille were bowled out for 104 from 20 overs and after a lush tea provided by the tea ladies and several helpers which we thank for their cakes Whitstable set about their reply With Chris Sargant and Luke Blake putting on 63 for the 1st wicket before Blake was cleaned bowled. Sargant went on to reach his 50 and declared allowing Ben Rutherford to join the batting but another r quick wicket shocked the Whitstable players so close to victory that some were taking a hot shower !! Captain kai appleby and Australian Jordi saw us home in the 17th over before we wished our guests a safe journey home and look forward to the return trip in September.
Whitstable Secretary's X1 won the toss and decided to bowl.
