Cruickers Cup shock

After an emotional week of highs and lows; the Olympic success followed by the London bombings, the Cruickers Cup was contested in fine style with an unexpected outcome;

How did it happen? Was it the lack of Old Dartech bowlers on parade; skipper Coverly stuck in London ?

Was it the powerful hitting of Winton - for once promoted to open the innings ?

The fine catching of the church team- surely some divine intervention in the way some of these stuck ?

The strange decsion to open with Kevin Saunders, when surely he should have been used down the order as insurance ?

The fine bowling of the Linnets ?

The fact that the umpires couldn't see through the gloom to give any wides - at least that was their story..

Whatever it was this was a worthy match for the annual Andrew Cruickshank memorial trophy. How he would have laughed at some of the goings on.
