CDD Sponsored Rob Franks leads Dorset Disability to victory
Dorset Disability Cricket Club took to the pitch on Sunday the 24th of May, recording a win in their second fixture of the season, against Glamorgan’
Dorset won comfortably in the end by 92 runs; with CDD sponsored Captain Rob Franks contributing a quick fire 54 not out to his side’s 317 all out.
“The game went exactly how we wanted” said Franks, “we bowled incredibly well, fielded well and I’m happy with how the calls I made on the batting line-up held up.”
Franks supplied an economical 6 overs of medium pace bowling with one maiden, otherwise conceding 24 runs for 1 wicket.
“I felt I bowled a good line and they found it difficult to get me away, as I’m no longer an out and out fast bowler but much more accurate,” said Franks, “with my batting I felt incredibly comfortable. I didn’t have any balls that particularly worried me.”
“I love my SM kit, I’ve used many different ones before but I’ve never felt this secure. The Blaze T20 bat has enormous sweet spots and a huge middle – It’s enabling me to play the way I like to play, scoring quick runs.”
“I went out with the attitude of getting a quick 20 to 30 runs, but ended up with a 31-ball 54 not out, and in all honesty it felt like I could’ve batted all day!”
Dorset Disability’s first game this season was against the Isle of Wight cruelly beaten by 21 runs. Franks conceded 12 runs in his 6 overs and was caught going for his 50, whilst on 47.
