Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI v Cuckfield 4 on Sat 13 Jul 2013 at 1.30
Edenbridge Cricket Club Lost By 3 wickets

Match report On the hottest day of they year and on a fantastic looking batting strip we won the toss and chose to bat first. Dom and Josh B started,solidly but were pinned down by their opening bowler who bowled a 16 over unbroken spell and eventually bowled Josh with a rip snorter of a delivery. Having stuck out those difficult opening overs Dom threw his wicket away playing across the line to their 3rd change bowler for a hard fought 37, the same bowler went on to get a further two wickets and finished with figure of 5 over 2 maidens 3 wickets for 6 runs somehow! Picking up the wickets of Joycey and Tim in quick succession. Henry Kings then came to the crease and supported by two nice cameo innings from Namesakes Kieran Martin and Peters we inched to 155 for 7 off our allotted overs, with Henry ending up on a 36 not out. Unfortunately we were always 50 runs short of the ideal score on that wicket.
James Witt and Henry Kings opened the bowling for us and it was not long before James got his first wicket with safe hands Max Hill taking a sure catch at point and following that up with a great catch at long off to get out their dangerous looking No3 again from James bowling. Despite the taking of these wickets Cuckfield were always ahead of the required run rate and their No4 & 5 were beginning to take the game away from us. Tim Fuller stepped up and got their No 4 out nicking behind, well caught by Kerian Peters behind the stumps and went on to get a further two wickets. James Witt came back on for a 2nd spell and bowled their No5 who had been leading a charmed life scoring quickly but giving with various chances that we either missed or not quite going to hand. Despite these breakthroughs and pressure building on Cuckfield, we did not have enough runs on the board in the end and they managed to knock them off with 3 wickets and overs to spare.
Another good team performance, albeit without getting the desired result,in extremely hot,conditions.
