Even in-form Barnack all-rounder Steve Best couldn’t save Hunts from defeat in the National Over 50s Cup at the hands of Beds in Potton today (June 22).
Best followed a decent 2-30 spell (nine overs) with the ball with a hard-hitting innings of 61, but Hunts went down by 16 runs.
Captain Bob Milne struck 57 for Hunts, but they paid the penalty for bowling too many wide deliveries in the home side’s 45-over innings of 224-5.
Hunts have now lost two of their three group matches, but they still have four left in which to gain enough victories to qualify for the knockout stages.
Beds 224-5 (S. Best 2-30).
Hunts 208 (S. Best 61, B. Milne 57).
