WCC v NUTHURST. Mannings Heath. 6th Sept.
Nuthurst won by seven wickets.
In order to protect the houses ringing the boundary, the local rule stipulates that a shot which would normally be a six scores no runs at all. Despite a playing condition which, in theory, hands a huge advantage to the WCC bowlers, we still lost easily.
