Hallows bowls Somerset to victory over new boys
6:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in Sport
SOMERSET Disabled Cricket Club hosted their newly-formed Gloucestershire counterparts at Taunton Deane CC.
The Gloucestershire side was recently established by their cricket development officer Chris Munden and Somerset stalwart Andrew Harrison, who lives in Dursley, and were playing their first game of disabled cricket.
Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to field first in this 20-20 friendly.
Somerset openers Adam Snow and captain James Redwood put on 60 with attacking shots which dominated the Gloucester bowlers. Runs continued to flow until some tight bowling restricted the Somerset innings to 125 with captain Redwood top scoring with 25 and wicketkeeper Tom Froome making 20.
With a low total to defend, Somerset turned to the experience of Redwood and the ever- improving young pace bowler Ben Hallows to open the bowling. Hallows bowled an impeccable line and length and immediately had the visiting batsmen struggling at the crease. As the runs dried up, Somerset picked up wickets with Hallows taking three, backed up by Adam Snow who took two for nine, while debutant Ricky Corrigan ended with two for one as Gloucestershire were finally bowled out for 48.
Somerset would like to thank Taunton Deane CC for hosting the match and to Lentells the Accountants for their continued support and sponsorship of Somerset Disabled Cricket Club.
l Somerset DCC have three remaining fixtures this season. On Sunday (tomorrow), they travel to Dorchester to take on Dorset, with the return taking place at Taunton Deane CC a week later on August 25. The final game of the 2013 season is against Hampshire on September 1.
