Match report Kirkhill, SMRH (10pts) 248-8, 50 overs (B Tracey 118; Z Kahlil 3-18, R Liddle 3-74) beat Penicuik (0pts) 160-6, 38 overs (E Potts 64, K Steel 31) by 24 runs D/L.
Penicuik set a revised total of 184 from 38 overs.

Penicuik were home to league leaders SMRH on Saturday, winning the toss Penicuik elected to bowl first.
SMRH started very aggressively notching 30 runs off the first 3 overs. Zeesh Khalil made the important first breakthrough, and a further quick 2 wickets had SMRH in a little bit of trouble at 50 for 3. This though brought to the crease the leagues leading run scorer and SMRH overseas amateur B Tracey, who added another impressive century to his season's tally finally dismissed for 118. Tracey was the pillar of the SMRH innings, well supported by the middle order helping them to 248 for 8 off their 50 overs.

Penicuik in reply lost Foulds early, but Martin Juson and Kris Steel settled well before Juson was caught at mid-on. This brought Eric Potts to the wicket and his positive innings had Penicuik well on target when the threat of the thundery weather came into the equation. Unfortunately chasing runs Potts and Steel fell for 64 and 31 respectively, both great efforts in particular Potts who looked very dangerous. A big shower then halted proceedings, and with the game at quite an advanced stage the Duckworth-Lewis calculation gave Penicuik 54 runs to win from a revised 3.4 overs left. Always unlikely Penicuik batters swung hard but came up short by 24 runs.

A testing tie for Penicuik who can be pleased with the good account given, they look forward to next weeks game away to Falkland.
