VIDEO: Goring CC One Stump Challenge

GORING Cricket Club took part in the Herald/Gazette One Stump Challenge last night.

The challenge? One stump at the end of the wicket, one ball in hand at the other end and you just need to hit the stump. It sounds simple, but it is surprising how tough it really is.

The challenge takes place on a standard wicket, so a normal bowling length where bowlers can use their preferred action.

Anyone who successfully hits the stump will win a One Stump Challenge t-shirt, designed and sponsored by Pinnacle Sport & Leisure, which is based in South Farm Road, Worthing.

The most successful team last year was Findon, where two players hit the stump. Goring were successful once, while Worthing, Chippingdale, Littlehampton and Southwick were unable to win a t-shirt, although they will all be hoping for better fortunes this year.
