Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club Indoor 2nd Team v Compton & Chandlers Ford 3 on Sun 23 Oct 2016 at 7:30
Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club Won by 64 runs

Match report Neither the 3s nor 2s had started the league in great form, the former scraping a last gasp one wicket victory and the latter playing very poorly and getting stuffed. Much therefore rested on this fixture, for which the 3s drafted in first team star Joe Murray after his 5-for earlier in the evening.

Batting first, the 2s made a slow start against Joe and Rich Wilson, only 8 coming in the first 2 overs. The scoring rate improved, but the match was very evenly poised at 50-0 off six overs.

Martin retired soon after, at which point Dylan entered and changed the course of the match, batting very aggressively and retiring in just 8 balls. With Ethan also retired, the score had reached 100 off nine overs.

The lower order continued to play and run positively, particularly Ash (24*), as the 12 overs finally yielded 156-2, Rob (7) and Nanda (13) both being run out in the closing stages. Joe's figures of 0-46 show what can happen when you play a ringer in an important game!

This was a big total and if the 3s were to get near it they needed a good start. They got this, taking 16 off the first over, including a superb on-drive first ball for 6 by Matt.

Unfortunately, Luke (4) ran himself out in the next over and Joe (12) and Chris (3) soon followed. 50 runs were again on the board at the half-way mark, but this meant the 3s were way behind the clock. The bowling and fielding were very tight, allowing Dylan to not risk his side strain.

Matt came back soon after retiring and was left as last man, as Greg (13) and Rich (0) fell to very good catches by Ethan and, particularly, Rob.

The 2s couldn't get the final wicket as Matt finished with an excellent 38* out of a total of 92, but were happy enough with a comprehensive win.
