BITS side downcast by failing to get into gear

IT was a disappointing start to the year for BITS, after The Glen made enough runs with just one wicket down in the 17th over on Saturday.

BITS captain Dave Webber and Michael Mole opened the batting and were optimistic about their performance.

Webber said he was glad to get through The Glen's bowlers Jason Seng and David Heymer.

Webber made 15 runs and Mole was out shortly after making 21 runs.

"We were pretty disappointed with our performance. Being the first game back after Christmas we were just a little unprepared," he said.

The Glen opening bowler Jason Seng said they put in a good performance on an average pitch.

Three batsmen Josh Hall, Eric Fourie and David Heymer made enough runs to win the match.

BITS claimed their first and only wicket with Eric Fuller out after 34 runs.

"At that point we knew we had the game in the bag," Seng said.

BITS will take on Brothers next week and with their batsmen back, Webber was hopeful for a win.

Brothers and The Glen will play at the Clinton Oval on Saturday.
