The Agnes travelled to Dukes Park for the first game in the tri-series against Driffield. A series that will define the 2023 season.
With rain in the air, Agnes lost the toss and were sent in to bat. The MBP scored 46 and was supported by Will Watts who clubbed some testosterone fuelled sixes. Agnes set Driffield 108 to win. On such a wet and dark night, this wasn’t going to be an easy chase.
Agnes begun the reply well with Marley Ward and the Skipper bowling well. With 4 overs to go, it was advantage Agnes. With the game on a knife edge, a young Driffield batsmen hit two sixes and then edged two fours to steal a victory for the Woldsmen.
Jordans Zamunda, cheered on by his family’s workforce back in Harare, took impressive figures of 4-20.
This was a painful loss. A loss the Agnes men didn’t take well. Freddie Gunning stayed up until 8am watching Monsters Inc and was heavily under the influence of the devil’s grass. The Skipper, who lost his 100% winning record, tied The Flame up in the back of his car and drove it off the Humber Bridge with a terrified and screaming Flame in the boot. And Charlie Watts, alongside Little Richard paid for a dangerous amount of cocaine using a Watts business card.
1-0 to Driffield
