AN excellent bowling performance helped March Town Cricket club kick off their Tucker League campaign with a win on Saturday.
The hosts batted first and could only muster 135 but they skittled out Camden CC for 91 to secure a 44-run victory at The Avenue.
March started well and eased to 82-1 of 18 overs, but once Tommy Howgego (33) and Shardul Brahmbatt (29) were dismissed, their innings unravelled.
A shock six wicket collapse ripped out the entire top and middle order.
They were indebted to teenager Tyler Phillips (27), who put on a valuable 34 runs for the eighth wicket with Andy Wright, who batted for 52 minutes for a precious 12 runs.
Camden were 40-0 in response and looked comfortable before Phillips (2-13) removed both openers.
Then overseas stars Steve Seymour (3-18) and off-spinner Shardul Brahmbhatt (4-19) caused havoc, sharing seven wickets in two seven over spells.
