Streat & Westmeston v Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 11 Jul 2015 at 13:30
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won by 6 wickets

Match report On a glorious sunny day in a quintessential cricket setting with the back drop of the south downs we won the toss and much to the shock of Boakes, Philips & Goodhew the skip decided to bowl first! A decision that proved to be wholly justified when we had them 40 odd for 5! Great opening spells from both Hilly and Luke Boakes, accompanied by some poor shots, saw us rip through their lower order, before a middle order resistance of sorts. A change of bowling was called for, with Toby Fuller coming and duly get the important break through of their middle order. Luke Boakes was then brought back on from the other end to make in-roads into their tail end, duly obliging by taking a 2 further wickets, one coming from an absolute world class catch from Hilly ( we wont mention the absolute dolly he dropped whilst he was still patting himself on the back for the first catch!). Howard then came on doing a great job, ( under the threat of a second spell from Hilly), taking the final two wickets in one over in the nick of time.
Through great bowling and equally impressive fielding we had managed to bowl them out on a belter of wicket for 121!
We were confident that we could knock that score off without too much trouble! However our lower order were obviously in a hurry to get to the pub!, with both Matt Cox and Josh Boakes being caught behind early on from flicks off their legs straight to the keeper and Luke and Seb getting themselves out cheaply without troubling the scoreboard to any degree. We were beginning to make this road of a wicket look more tricky than the opposition had! Up step Ben Philips (The run machine) hitting a quick fire 77, quietly supported by Dom Jordan, to knock off the required, with no further drama, 20 overs to spare and six wickets in hand!
A great 30 points and a strong all round team performance.
