  On a day where rain interruptions were always going to play their part, Stonor and BBC Caversham played to a close fought draw.

After being put in on a grassy wicket, Stonor struggled to establish any momentum as BBC Caversham’s opening bowlers, Dickson (2 for 40) and Watkins (3 for 30) exploited the conditions well.  Wickets fell steadily with no Stonor player reaching double figures except opener, Ben Denton, who did an exceptional job holding the innings together with a fine knock of 94. 

At 136 for 7, a sporting declaration was made by Stonor and within an hour BBC Caversham looked well on their way to victory at 54 for no wicket with plenty of overs to spare and Burton going well.  However, following the departure of openers Deeks and the impressive Burton (55) to a brilliant reflex catch by Mayo in the gully, the innings lost momentum.  Hodkinson with a great 6 over spell (4 for 13) and Nicholson (3 for 23) delivered some tight, testing bowling and the game ended with BBC Caversham on 114-7, 23 runs short of the winning target.
