AN improved batting performance enabled Royston to take a share of the Tucker Gardner League points at Khalsa, on Saturday.
After being put in the field, Royston's bowling attack started well. Adam Newman and Will Graham bowled very tight and worked well as a makeshift opening partnership, in the absence of Richard Temple.
Newman took the first three wickets in his 16-over straight spell, and after 24 overs Khalsa were 90-4.
However, Royston's lack of bowling depth let Khalsa off the hook as they found it easy to pick boundaries off some mediocre bowling in the second half of their innings before being bowled out for 233. Will Graham claimed four wickets.
