Mr Saucisson’s last game for The Quokkas ended in defeat despite a superb individual bowling performance.
After batting first, none of the Quokkas made much headway with willow in hand. Only Fruity (29) and Faggy (24) troubling the Wantage bowlers in a solid mid order partnership that ended when Faggy implemented “Plan F” and ran-out Fruity when he was well set.
None of the lower order contributed much – props must go to Kev however for a solid crease occupying 1 – as Tweaky from Wantage recorded innings figures of 3/8.
Defending 116 was never going to be easy, but Mr Saucisson gave it his best shot knowing it was his last in the tight maroon. Bowling 7 overs for 6 runs and taking 3 wickets rightly earned him the B&F points for the game and a fitting send off. Faggy claiming the other scalp to leave Wantage 35/4 and us in with a sniff.
Sadly the other Quokka bowlers couldn’t replicate this success and despite Skip rotating the bowlers in the search for wickets, the total was just too little and Wantage ran out easy victors.
So farewell to Mr Saucisson who will be much missed for his accurate fast/medium bowling and charcuterie selection
