A rain affected win against Staffs
20 Jun 2023

Bucks recorded their first win in this season's National Counties Trophy when they beat Staffordshire by 26 runs on the DLS system in a rain-affected Group 4 game  at Moddershall and Oulton on Sunday.
Staffordshire, who chose to bat first, reached 259-9 from their 50 overs. At 129-1 after just 17 overs, the hosts seemed set to score well in excess of 300. But a brilliant spell of 5-44 in ten overs from Harefield leg-spinner Stephen Croft, well supported by young Gerrards Cross left-arm spinner Teddy Fleming (2-45) held them back.
Thanks to a fluent unbeaten 55 from 61 balls from AJ Woodland, who hit ten fours, Bucks were cruising at 105-1 when rain ended the game. Bucks won by 26 runs on DLS. Scorecard
The victory was not enough for Bucks to qualify from the group - Wiltshire and Dorset go through.
