Practising beforehand, it's just not cricket

There was Tom Bibby scoring some wonderful boundaries.

Into the semis were the wanderers who lost narrowly to the Jolly Farmer, while Maliks beat the football club to make the final.  They set last years winners the Jolly Farmer a relatively easy target of 59 but some devastating bowling in the third of 5 overs reduced the Farmers to needing 30 runs with only Mike Mather left to bat.
