Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI v Ditchling 3 on Sat 06 Jul 2013 at 1.30
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won By 5 Wickets

Match report On a sunny and very hot day, we won the toss and decided to bowl despite only starting the match with 9 players. James and Henry got us off to a good start, bowling tightly and each taking an early wicket. Josh Hill replaced James, bowling very well and taking two important wickets. At the other end Tim replaced Henry after a long spell, in which he restricted batsmen from scoring freely and took two wickets. Tim took a wicket in a short spell before Max and Dan were brought into the attack towards the end of the innings and again bowled very well, Dan picking up a well deserved wicket and both doing well to restrict Ditchling to 182 for 9. This score was a little below par but was competitive and would require a good run chase to win. A really good bowling and fielding performance all round in some testing conditions, with Peter proving to be a very safe pair of hands with three good catches.
Our run chase didn't get off to the best of starts losing Joycey early. However Peter and Josh recovered well and got us on our way. The chase was going well until Peter was bowled, before we lost a couple more wickets in quick succession. Henry then came to the crease and increased the run rate in a very typical innings, playing very aggressively and making 23. When Henry was dismissed we were 110 for 5 and struggling, however Max came in and supported Josh extremely well. The pair batted sensibly and kept the run rate ticking over, building a partnership nicely. The partnership continued and frustrated the opposition, before we reached our target with an over and 3 ball to spare. Josh finishing on 79 and Max on 23, both Not Out.
Overall a great win against some tough opposition, which was a great achievement as we were missing our Captain and only playing with 10 men. And a big thanks goes to Lewis for helping us out at the last minute.
