Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club 2nd XI v Wherwell on Sat 25 May 2013 at 2.00
Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club Lost

Match report The 2s made an encouraging start to their home game against Wherwell. Ralph and Arun both struck early to see the visitors at 23/2 but the batsmen quickly recovered and runs began to flow freely.

The introduction of over 100 years of experience into the attack helped stem the tide as Rob (1/23) and Martin (4/46) pinned the visitors back in the middle overs. Having kept wickets in hand Wherwell were able to swing the bat in the final overs - but their final total of 191/7 appeared to be no better than par on a very flat Compton track.

Unfortunately Compton's innings got off to an awful start as Gary/James/Paul and Rob all fell without reaching double figures. From 29/4 Harry (52) and Matt (39) took the innings to a position where victory seemed more than just a possibility. At 110/4, needing less than 4 an over, the visitors looked rattled. Matt, however, holed out from a full toss and the rest of the batting folded against the setting sun. The last 6 wickets fell for just 22 runs leaving us 132 all out.

3 losses in 3 leaves the 2s desperate to find a winning formula. The return of the skipper, and main strike bowler, Jon, will sharpen up the bowling and leave some interesting selection quandries with respect to the batting (with the outside chance of a 1st teamer also dropping down).
