Bowlers Held Mastery at Denaby
Brodsworth 69, Denaby and Cadeby 74 for 6
Brodsworth when for 69 at Tickill Square on Wednesday night on Denaby and Cadeby were content to achieve victory in a leisurely canter, though not before they had lost six wickets in the process and at one stage promised to offer an unusual hat-trick of l.b.w. decisions to Baines.
Brodsworth were at the wicket 90 minutes for their 69, Miller (22), Macdonald (14) and Flewitt (13) bringing the principal stiffening to a steady fall of wickets. Bacon returned 4 for 25 in nine overs, Newton 2 for 21 and Robinson 2 for 1 in an over which polished off two of the last three Brodsworth wickets – and just missed a hat-trick in the process.
Perry was quick in action and quick to earn reward when in the second ball of his second over Flewitt took a smart catch at point to dismiss Howson with Denaby score at one. Second and third wickets fell at 26, Ellis and Munden falling in successive deliveries, l.b.w. To Baines. Bacon came to score with delightful polish and style. His was the first four of the Denaby innings and he had 30 to his credit before he snicked a ball from Baines to Seniscal’s sure hands. Perry and Baines bowled unchanged for 65 minutes before Sensical replaced Perry, Baines continuing his tireless bowling to take four of the six Denaby wickets.
