Bascome and Steede do the damage for St George’s
St George's earned their second victory of the season after beating Flatts Victoria by six wickets in a low-scoring One Premier Division contest at Lord's yesterday.
Onais Bascome and Ryan Steede claimed seven wickets between them as Flatts were skittled out for 125 in 37.2 overs after being sent in to bat.
Bascome led the visiting side's bowling attack with four for 27 while Steede took three for 16. Detroy Smith claimed two for 22 during his second spell after Bascome and Steede had made the breakthrough.
Opening batsman Reginald Baker was Flatts' top scorer with 54 while wicketkeeper Coefield Robinson struck 21. There were 25 extras, which included 15 wides.
St George's made a solid start to the run chase with Dexter Smith, who hit 35, and Detroy Smith, who scored 46 not out, producing a 67-run opening partnership to put their team well on their way to victory.
Flatts fought back and managed to snatch four wickets in the space of 33 runs to halt St George's charge.
However, the visiting side were not to be denied as Detroy Smith and Damon Walker produced a match winning 26-run partnership to carry their team across the line with plenty of wickets and overs to spare.
Third change bowler Logan Jones was the pick of the Flatts bowling attack with three for 20.
