Kinsella on the rampage again!
The blustery conditions at Fawley made bowling somewhat tricky, and this was borne out by the fact that the game saw 235 runs scored for the loss of just 9 wickets.
The first of those 9 wickets fell in the very first over as Aidan Lindsay-Wood lobbed a simple catch to mid-on off the bowling of Ross Melton. Sadly for the home side it was another 78 runs before they could celebrate another wicket as George Hayward and Charlie Kinsella rattled up the runs before both retiring on 40. Kinsella, in particular, was in rampant mood, smashing two huge sixes and 4 fours. Josh Thacker added a quick 30, and although Fawley picked up 5 more wickets, chiefly through Jack Barnes who took 2-21, Lymington ended their innings on an imposing 135-6.
Fawley's reply was soon in trouble as Lindsay-Wood and Hayward struck early blows to leave the Oilers on 7-2. But any thoughts of an early finish were dashed by Ross Melton and Brendan Streather (42no) who both batted extremely well. Melton (14) eventually fell to Louis Ambrose, but that was to be Lymington's last success as Declan Irvine (14no) and Barnes (3no) held out as Lymington used 8 bowlers in a vane attempt to winkle out a few wickets. Fawley's innings ended on 100-3, giving Lymington a comfortable 35 run victory.
