Odiham & Greywell III v Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club 4th XI on Sat 16 Jul 2016 at 2pm
Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club Won by 67 runs

Match report A very long drive to a lovely ground of Crondall. Looked good since there was Champagne ready poured out for drinks: turned out it was for the wedding.
With 8 players at the start captain won the toss again, 100% record, and had no choice but to bat. Things started badly as Chas played on first ball, Ben was bowled by a late swinging bowler and new boy Ashley swung far too early, we were 7 for 3 after three overs. Tim and captain Rob then calmed things down and batted for 30 overs and secured a 100 partnership. So with 10 overs left Tim started to hit out and finally a low bounce bowled him for his highest score of 67. By this time we had 10 players, with Chris and Matt changed and ready. In strode matt who had license to hit and in quick time he had a couple of fours and a six but was bowled for 18. This brought in Steve, who mullered the young leg break bowler and in one over hit three sixes and was not out for 40 with Rob carrying his bat for 37 . So we made the highest 4th team score for a couple of season, 181 for 5.
A couple of times we stopped play to watch the red arrows and a couple of spitfires, a case of airplanes stopped play!

Now after a really good tea, scones with fresh picked strawberries and cream we set about the task of winning. The opening three overs produced 1 run, pressure was on Odiham. Debutante Ashely ran and caught a stunner of a catch off George's bowling followed by neat glove work by Ben catching one off Chris Stewart. A pair of good lucking batsmen were building a score when Steve and Phil were introduced into the attack. Steve struck first bowling their best bat followed by Chris taking a catch off Phil's bowling. Then Steve bowled a couple more, and Phil had another caught so when they had finished their 10 overs each Odiham were 7 wickets down. The crowd were now noisy, the wedding reception poured out for photographs, all Compton appeared in the background. The last three wickets were mopped up by Chris, George and Matt.

So they were all out for 114: so 23 points against the third team in the league and with only ten players a good afternoon.

Next week we play Petersfield at KGV or is it somewhere else?
