Bunwell hit record score in win over Caister

BUNWELL'S unbeaten start to the season in RJ Bidewell Division Three continued in fine fashion with a comprehensive 154-run win over Caister.

Bunwell finished their 40 overs with a Sunday team record score of 302.

They elected to bat first on a good-looking pitch. D Cannell was first out for 51, bringing D Parfitt (92) to the crease and G Barnes was soon to follow for 53. S Turner (62no) then joined Parfitt and together they proceeded to carry on with the high run rate.

Once Parfitt lost his wicket Bunwell already seemed to be in a very strong position with their total but G Pitcher (15) and A Henderson (8 not out) carried on with the runs free flowing.

Caister opener R Stokes (80no) held up his end to bat through the full 40 overs but only only three other players reached double figures.

G Robbie and I Nichols excelled with their spin bowling, finishing with five wickets between them.

Bunwell beat Caister by 154 runs in RJ Bidewell Division Three.
