As if the Test Match hasn't been exciting enough! For the second week running Tattenhall were involved in a superb game of cricket as they won the toss and chose to bat.

Coppack and Dobson played carefully against tight bowling and laid a good foundation at 46-2 in the 20th over. Captain Thompson then formed a good partnership with Coppack before Coppack fell for 45 as Tattenhall looked to up the rate on a large ground with few boundary opportunities. Thompson remained unbeaten at the close on 86 as Tattenhall finished on 200-7 at 50 overs.

The start of the Sale innings was a blitz from Dan Power as he picked up the first three Sale batsmen without scoring and it looked as though Sale would lose for only the second time this season. Despite Power's superb spell, Tattenhall could not pick up wickets at the other end as Sale clawed their way back into the game. A vital dropped catch on the Sale Captain when he was on only 10 proved costly as he went on to make 77, and with the momentum moving in their favour, Sale were able to reach 203-7 with just 14 balls of the match left. Power finished with 5-61 from 19 overs.

There is yet more cricket at the Flacca this afternoon — come and join us!
