Improve with the bat or we’re down, Jagota warns Boro boys

Rohit Jagota believes his Pulborough side are now the favourites for the drop after another poor batting display cost them again on Saturday.

Once again Boro performed with the ball, as even without main strike bowler Kuldeep Rawat they restricted Glynde to 139-9.

But their batting again let them down as the visitors were knocked off for just 95 runs.

“It’s the same old story, I don’t know what more I can say about our batting,” said a frustrated Jagota.

“We bowled well again, to keep them to 139 was a very gettable score. But again there was no partnerships.”

Boro were dealt a late blow with Rawat injuring his back and unable to bowl. But winning the toss Jagota stuck the hosts in and Amit Suman took on wicket-taking responsibility. He took two wickets bowling seam before switching to spin and adding another three wikcets to take figures of 5-51. Shane West and Jagota took two wickets each in support, while Joe Adams top scored for Glynde with 40.

But Boro again failed with the willow, Rawat top scoring with 22 as Adam Davies took 6-34 to skittle them out for sub 100. Boro are ten points off the relegation places and Jagota said: “Luckily Haywards Heath and Ifield lost but the way we are batting we have to be favourites to go down.”
