Cuckfield 4 v Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI on Sat 04 Jun 2011 at 2pm
Edenbridge Cricket Club Lost 58 runs

Match report A hot day in the sun saw Cuckfield win the toss and bat, bat some more and then keep on batting until they reached 249 for 4 from 44 overs.

The first two 'bridge overs conceded 23, albeit with one wicket and these somewhat set the tone. Tim Fuller's first three overs contained only one bad ball and gave up 2 runs in total - Lewis' first bowling spell for the Sat 2s returned useful figures of 7-1-34-1 given that the batsmen were well set and flaying the ball to all parts. lewis could have had an even better set of figures had he managed to cling on to a sharp c&b chance.

This was not one of our best performances in the field.

When it came our turn to reply, it was obvious that seeing off Rodney Candfield's first spell would be key and that, because of the speed of the outfield, a big target was not impossible.

In the event, Phil saw off Rodney's first 3 balls before edging to the keeper and the stampede of 'bridge wickets on the way to 24-6, 27-7 then 49-8 was reminiscent of something David Attenborough would wax lyrical about. What followed, Lewis excellent ton was as welcome as it was unexpected. Playing some genuine cricket shots and striking the ball as cleanly as anyone i've seen this year, Lewis saved 'bridge humiliation aided first of all by Kieran who shared a 63 run partnership and then last man Toby who remained resolute throughout a 79 run, 15 over stand.

Lewis stats were:
112 runs from 96 balls in 96 minutes with his first 50 coming from 45 balls in 41 minutes and his hundred in 84 balls in 86 minutes. 16 fours and four sixes. Thoughout the knock, Lewis gave one chance only and that was when in the '90s

A fantastic performance; such a shame that he received no support from the other batsmen as the only way this innings could have been better was if it had been made in a succesful chase.
