its going across McCollum, driven hard through the covers and it races to the boundary. Everyone just watches the ball go as they know that the Knights have won!
That was a special innings that we witnessed today from James McCollum, his 79 off 53 balls anchored a comfortable chase for the Knights.
A mixture of clean hitting and some innovation meant that the Warriors bowlers could never settle into a rhythm, how expensive was it for the Warriors when Rankin dropped that dolly?
The truth was that the Warriors target was never going to be a challenge for this powerful Knights batting order. Chasing this down in less then 16 overs means that they get an all important bonus point.
For the Warriors, its now played three, lost three and they stay at the bottom of the table. Lots of thinking to be done on their journey back to the North West this evening.
The good news for them is that they get another chance to get their season back on track this Thursday when they travel to North County for a double header against the Reds, hopefully you'll be able to join me then.
Until then, this is Justin saying goodbye from a Sunlit Comber. Bye!
