Lymington enter nose bleed territory as they top Division 2 with a comprehensive win

Kiwi was in great form behind the stumps taking 5 catches

On a warm sunny day Lymo moved to the top of Division 2 with a convincing win over bottom of table OT's who batted first. The home team started steadily against Trevor Phillips (12 overs 1 for 38) and Lloyd Scott (11 overs 3 for 42) and at 123 for 3 in the 31st looked set for a score of well over 200 runs. Lloyd was bought back on for a 3 over spell taking the key wicket of Charlie Forward (45) who edged an inswinger to Kiwi. Zimbabwean Keith Dabengwa (12 overs 2 for 32) and Christian Pain (7.4 overs 3 for 40) and picked up late wickets and although Martin Gregory (6 overs 0 for 32) playing in his first 1st team game this year was a bit wayward and resulted in the bowlers in total bowling 30 wides (3 extra overs). Kiwi put in a sterling performance behind the stumps taking 5 catches in all and dropping none.


In reply Adie Hunt (11) and Simon King (79 not out) playing against his old club started well with the former looking in good form before he was out leg before with the score on 30. Keith Dabengwa (62) settling into English conditions rapidly took the score to 155 before he was caught on the longest boundary going for another 4. With the target well in sight and with lots of wickets in hand Neil Trestrail put on a rapid 22 not out of mainly boundaries as Kinger got his maiden Southern Premier League half-century. His 79 included a massive straight 6, numerous 4s as the scoring rate increased. Lymington cruised past OT's total with 17 overs to spare to win by 8 wickets.

Kinger got his best SPL score with 79 not out

The win moves Lymo up to top from third last week as the only unbeaten team in the league after last years champions Ventnor were well beaten by Andover.  

The team are looking better and better and with the average age now well below 30 with only veteran Neil Trestrail and the forever young Trevor Phillips over 30 and 5 former colts in the side it bodes well for the future.
