Edenbridge Cricket Club Sunday 1st XI v Fordcombe on Sun 09 Jun 2013 at 2.00
Match was Drawn

Match report Edenbridge won the toss and batted first. On a good batting track and with a very strong top six we had a good opportunity to set a big score. Both our openers getting starts but unfortunately neither went on to make a big score. After an ok start, we were 56 for 3. Stephen and Lewis then built a huge partnership, playing lots of attacking strokes and scoring freely off all Fordcombe's bowlers. When Lewis was finally dismissed for 44, the partnership had reached 127. We finished on 230 for 4. Stephen scoring a very impressive 129 not out, he showed great boundary hitting during his innings, hitting twenty fours and three sixes, not putting a foot wrong throughout. He frustrated the oppositions and his own batting patterns, continually stealing strike and playing very aggressively. 230 was always going to be very difficult to chase despite a good batting track.
James and Toby opened the bowling, both building pressure from the start by restricting the opposition from score freely. Toby took two early wickets with a great opening spell. After the openers had finished their spells, Stephen and Max were brought into the attack. The changes worked, with both taking wickets. After finally picking up the wicket of their opening batsman who had batted painfully slowly for his 29, Fordcombe were 66 for 6. However we were running out of time, despite rotating the bowling to try and take wickets Fordcombe built a partnership, with their wicket keeper playing an entertaining knock for a quick fire 30. Stephen picked up another wicket before the close, but unfortunately we ran out of time against a very resilient side.
After a great batting performance and a solid effort in the field we were unlucky not to get a well deserved win.
