Warm-Up Win For RAF Cricketers Ahead Of Inter Services

They defeated Aston Rowant by 43 runs ahead of Lord's in two weeks.

The RAF cricket team are picking up momentum ahead of the Inter Services T20s at Lord's on the 30th May.

They defeated Aston Rowant by 43 runs in their latest warm-up.

The team will play further matches in Birmingham before the military games start at Lord's.

The Air Force batted first against Aston Rowant and made a commanding start with the partnership of Tom Shorthouse and Tom Chapman.

They gained 31 runs before the first wicket when Chapman scooped out to cover and was caught.

Shorthouse was caught for a decent score of 45 runs and when Ross Diver was also caught, Ash Watson came in to finish off the innings.

The final score of 139-3 left Aston Rowant a total to chase, but a superb bowling display ended their hopes.

John Iniff, Tom Fairclough, Watson, Ian Sinclair and captain Adam Fischer all got wickets as Aston Rowant struggled to 93-7.
