Cracking day out at the welcoming, friendly Holtwhites Trinibis. Their young side got 194-4 which Gents chased down with 198-7. We hope this will be a fixture for many years to come.
Their No.3 Arjun Popat scored 89, both the highest and best innings against us this year. And what a ’keeper in 13-y-o Ben Evans.

30.8.20 Gents 187-10 beat Winchmore Hill Tigers 145 by 42 runs in a 12-a-side contest. Excellent bowling and fielding restricted Tigers after Gents had posted a hard-earned score (Kumar 32* batting No.10, opener Pentakota 28 in 20.2 overs). Gulati took 4-15, scandalously exaggerrated to 5-15 in early news broadcasts.
