Match Report

1st XI v Hinton Charterhouse (H)

Sunday, 8th May 2005
National Village Knockout, 2nd Round

Chew batted first in this 40 over a side village knock out cup match. The first ball went to the mid wicket fence straight out of the middle of Andy Witcombe's bat. That set the scene for the next 39 overs. Both Witcombe and Rich Gatton piled up the runs in the early overs before being bowled out in the space of 12 balls. 40 for two off 7 sounds good, but with new batsmen at the crease it sometimes takes a while to get going. Not if you've got the Burly Mondair going in at 4 it doesn't. Ken took 2 or 3 to get his eye in, then whack, off he went. The crowd was treated to a masterclass of Mondair mayhem as Ken piled on the agony for the visitors.

In a chanceless 91 Ken hit five monster sixes and shed loads of fours before going lbw. At the other end Nick Beedell kept him company with some excellent cricket on his way to 48 (big jug avoidance there then!). Paul King and Dave Filer came in for the last 10 overs and kept the rate going and the score mounting. A couple of big hits in the last overs saw us up to 250 at the end.

Hinton were always chasing the game, and suffered as a result. Both Dave and Garry Filer bowled well and kept the score down whilst taking 4 wickets between them. With their top order gone the Hintonites folded tamely with King Buck taking two wickets and the others shared around. Hinton all out 156, nearly 100 runs behind.

A good result for Chew, and our first win of the season. The next round is in two weeks time at Chew Court.
