[Update] Teddington are now into the semi final of the ECB National Club knockout after soundly beating Saffron Walden by 7 wickets. Walden’s batsmen never seemed at ease and could only manage sporadic runs and no boundaries – all out for 117.
Despite reaching 100 for 2, Walden didn’t take it lying down though and their fast bowlers slowed Teddington’s charge to a temporary halt and managed to take a third wicket. This wasn’t enough though and for the second match in a row Ben Duncan finished off the opposition with the final runs of the day.
Teddington now meet Ealing at home in the semi-finals on August 22nd – join in the fun at Bushy Park and support your local team.
