Defending champions make a stuttering start in Twenty20

Berkshire have made a stuttering start to their defence of the MCCA
Twenty20 competition with two wins and two defeats in their Bank
Holiday weekend double headers with Shropshire at Whitchurch and
Buckinghamshire at Wargrave.
On Sunday, they lost their opening game by 11 runs. Shropshire were
bowled out for 163 with Luke Beaven (3.2-0-24-3) taking the last three
wickets with successive deliveries, two of his victims being smartly
stumped by Jack Davies off wide deliveries.
Davies went on to make 52 off 39 balls, while James Morris hit 46 and
Joe Thomas 32 not out, but Berkshire's reply fell just short at 152-7.
The second game was equally as close, but this time it was Berkshire
who secured victory by 12 runs.
They posted 164-9, thanks largely to Richard Morris, who hit 50 off 31
balls, and Davies with 41 from 27 deliveries on a pitch that favoured
the slow bowlers.
The hosts reached 100-2 in the 14th over with Alex Phillips making 42
and Alexei Kervezee 40, but Euan Woods turned the game Berkshire's way
with excellent figures of 4-0-23-4 and Shropshire were restricted to
152-9.
On Monday, the opening encounter saw the national champions beat Bucks
by seven runs.
Put in to bat, Berkshire made 131-8 with Richard Morris making a
run-a-ball 46, skipper James Morris 29 and Euan Brock 22.
Bucks fell just short at 124-6 (Garry Park 42) with Brandon Gilmour
taking 3-25 and Euan Woods 2-25.
However, the visitors gained swift revenge by winning the second match
by four runs.
Bucks, electing to bat first, were restricted to 127-8 (Park 37,
Conrad Louth 31) with Woods claiming 3-17, Beaven 2-26 and Rhodri
Lewis 2-27.
Woods opened the innings with Chris Peploe (23) and they put on 44 for
the first wicket.
Richard Morris (25) was next to go with the total on 82, however, the
batsmen found it hard to push the score along and Berks slipped behind
the run rate. Woods was bowled for 44 with the score on 114 and
despite a brisk knock of 17 by Brock, Berks finished on 123-6.
Berkshire's next Twenty20 game is against Herefordshire at Falkland CC
on June 16, but before that, they play Dorset in the Trophy at Oratory
School on June 2.
