Ashdown Forest v Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 23 May 2015 at 13:30
Match was Drawn

Match report A very competitive draw against a strong Ashdown Forest side. We lost the toss, again!, and were asked to bowl on a wicket that looked like it could do a bit. Luke and Hilly's opening spells were aggressive and tight and had we held 1 of the three chances that came our way within that spell we may well have scuttled Ashdown out for a lot less than the 214 they scored. However it wasn't to be and after a bowling change at both ends brought 2 quick wickets, we then took wickets regularly with Luke coming back on for a very effective 2nd spell and taking 3,as well as Levi getting 2 timely wickets. Ashdown declared with 9 down after 45 overs.
With 214 to chase on a smallish pitch we fancied our chances. Their opening bowler was rapid and did for Josh with a delivery that would have troubled most! Dom and Ben battled on and put on a good 2nd wicket partnership of 72 before Dom got himself out, on 33, top edging a rank long hop to square leg! Luke came in and batted confidently but sensibly with Ben Philips, who went onto make 47, before being stumped. At one point when Levi and Luke were at the crease there was a chance of the run chase being on, but unfortunately Levi bottom edged a tight decision to their keeper and Hilly came and went with out scoring and for all intent and purposes we decided to settle for the draw. With Tom Dennehy contributing with a quick fire 17 getting us to an other point.
All in all a great all round team performance with contributions from everyone in the team.
