Pembury v Edenbridge Cricket Club Sunday 1st XI on Sun 11 May 2014 at 2.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won By 92 Runs

Match report After beating the weather the pitch looked in good shape, Pembury won the toss and choose to bowl, to our advantage with a strong batting line up. After some tricky early overs Dave and Stephen started to score freely before Stephen was bowled. Dom joined Dave at the crease, both playing a lot of attacking shots and putting Pembury's bowlers and fielders under pressure. On the way to building a huge partnership of 156 runs they scored 18 fours and 7 sixes between them, with Dom even managing to clear the ropes a couple of times. Eventually Dave fell short of his hundred finishing on 87 with Dom scoring 63. Despite losing a few late wickets we reached 225 before declaring.
With the arrival of the sun, Ben opened the bowling with an immediate impact taking a wicket with the first ball of the innings. Henry also struck early removing Pembury's other opener, also for 0. With pressure building on Pembury's top order, Ben took two more wickets, including a great one handed caught and bowled. Henry and Ben then combined again to take a fifth, with a sharp run out. With Pembury 19 for 5, they started to show some resistance with a resilient sixth wicket partnership. Stephen and Max both bowled well with no reward, Max in particular very unlucky after a couple of drop catches and a miss stumping off his bowling. Elliot came into the attack to finally break the partnership, assisted by another sharp one handed catch by Ben. Vijay also pick up a wicket in his spell before our two openers were brought back into the attack to finish off the tail. Ben pickup two more wickets to finish with a five wicket haul. Pembury eventually finished on 133, 96 runs short of the target. A great all round performance for our first game of the season, with two stand out performances from Ben and Dave.
