SULLY Centurions Cricket Club have obviously left their best form for the end of season friendly matches.

After last week's emphatic defeat of Rogerstone, Centurions once again won a high scoring match, this time at near neighbours Barry Wanderers.

And the feeling of deja vu was complete as skipper Rhett Jones hit another century and veteran Dave Sylvester produced another fine bowling performance.

Batting first on a hot afternoon, Centurions were soon in the runs as Jones and Gethin Hicks put on 58 for the second wicket.

After Hicks and then Shae Ellis departed the fireworks arrived as Jones and Jake Griffett shared an explosive partnership of 174, with Jake hitting 107, including nine 6s, before falling to Bevan in the 36th over.

As so often happens, after the breakthrough, the other partner was out soon after, when Rhett Jones finally fell to Himath after reaching 118 in the following over.

The innings came to a close on 316 for 9, with David Goodway (14) and Paul Harrison (6) being the not out batsman.

For the hosts, Himath (2-44) returned the best figures, with the rest of the wickets being shared among the other bowlers.

In reply, Wanderers lost two wickets in the first over, with Dave Sylvester bowling Jaiswal (1) and Harri for a duck.

However, a spirited stand of 76 between Tilbrook and Kumal helped drag the home side back into the game before Tilbrook fell to the bowling of Jason Hicks just one run short of his half century. David Goodway then weighed in with three wickets for 42, with only Kunal able to hold his own before the return of Sylvester finally brought his valiant innings to an end, being bowled for 95 in the final over.

The Wanderers ended on a respectable 232 for 8.

Once again, the game was played in the best of spirits with over 500 runs being served up in the September sunshine.

Not a bad afternoon's entertainment.
