Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club Midweek 1st XI v Wickham on Wed 22 May 2013 at 1830
Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club Lost by 1 run

Match report The first midweek match of the season ended in disappointment, as batting collapse left Compton and Chandlers Ford 1 run short.
We started brilliantly. Zach and Ralph maintained tight lines and lengths early on, restricting the flow of runs. Danger still lurked though, as both Wickham openers began to settle on a good track. Enter Mikey Haworth. Having boasted blistering pace, Mike bowled beautifully, and managed to extract a mistake from the batsmen. Bob, also maintained disciplined lines to match the excellent out-fielding, picking a wicked for himself. Mikey continued to bowl well, producing a stunner to tickle the off-stump after looping up and under the batsmen; the perfect slower ball. Compton bowled and fielded well restricting Wickham to 85 from their 18 overs.
We began the chase in the way it should have been continued; casually. Runs came easily as we rotated the strike and picked up the occasional boundaries. Unfortunately, that is as comfortable as it ever got. After Pranay through his wicket away, and Rob took an ill advised run to the keeper, it was left to new man James Cox, and Karthik. Karthik could't quite get going, but Coxy kept us moving with a few lusty blows. However, both fell quickly, leaving an uphill battle for the rest of the order. Bob and Mikey, made a good fist of it, but with 14 needed off the last over, we had left ourselves too much work.
A good effort from the team in the field, was let down by a panicked and irresponsible batting performance. Hopefully, it is not a trend we continue.
