Denaby knock off Score in 110 minutes
Denaby 151 for 2 Barnsley 150
Rain delayed the start at Denaby, on Saturday, in their home game with Barnsley, but it was on an easy wicket that Barnsley opened the innings to the bowling of Poole and Shoosmith. The Barnsley team were weakened by the absence of F. Birtles, who was playing for Yorkshire at Hull.
Barnsley’s opening pair were C. Hesketh and E. Richardson. Those two played a careful but bright innings, and there were 43 runs on the board when Hesketh was caught by Kennedy from Greenwood’s ball. The next four wickets fell, after each had made a small score, and Richardson was bowled by Crossley for the seventh wicket after scoring 36. The last two men made a stand, and pushed up the score from 116 to 150.
Denaby were left 110 minutes to knock the scores off, Tibbles and Greenwood opening for them. Greenwood had a merry but brief innings being bowled by Gill with the score at 51, he having scored 17. Narraway was run out after scoring 20, but Tibbles played a good innings, and was not out for 90. Tibbles scored 40 in ten minutes, and from one over 19 runs were scored, of which Tibbles scored 18, three 4’s and a 6. In his 90 he had fourteen 4’s and two 6’s. He batted throughout the innings. Denaby managed to knock off the scores with about ten minutes to spare, and for the loss of only two wickets.
For Denaby T Poole bowled throughout Barnsley’s innings with the following average: 28 overs, 10 maidens, 4 wickets, and 55 runs. Crossley took four Barnsley wickets for 28 runs.
