Another Narrow Setback
By Gary Watton
August 3 2017
Ssometimes losing by a small margin is the most painful situation of all, and yet again Derbyshire Falcons have narrowly prevailed against the Vikings. Quite frankly, with a team that boasts our embarrassment of resources, the Tykes should not be losing twice to our more impoverished neighbour. Kohler-Cadmore is short changing his employers with inadequate scores, while the efforts of Shaun Marsh are scarcely much better. Ultimately 180 was a decent total, but unfortunately Rafiq was expensive and Fisher underemployed, with the consequence that the visitors paced themselves perfectly to a deserved triumph. Three consecutive wins followed soon after by two straight defeats is typically Yorkshire. At least new recruit Sarfraz Ahmed acquitted himself well.
