Ivanhoe v Mayfield – 9 September 2012

Having won the toss Bob elected to bat on another hot afternoon but after 2 overs with the score 6 for 2 he must have wondered whether that was a good decision.  However 3rd and 5th wicket stands of 85 each firstly by Phil P (28) and Richard (40) and then Phil K (33) and the skipper himself(46no), together with a generous helping of extras allowed Ives close on 187 for 6 at tea.

The Mayfield reply opened in a similar way and 3 wickets for Ciaran with only 17 on the board looked likely to give Ives the edge but some big hitting by Patel with 78 aided by Morara with 45 eventually saw Mayfield home with overs to spare with only a returning Andy H with 2 late wickets and a run out by Ciaran disturbing their march to victory.
