Ivanhoe v Chalfont St Peter – 28 April 2013

Only ten men took the field for each team on this chilly Sunday at the end of April.  Ivanhoe fielded well with good bowling spells for Evans, Hausler and Parnell R taking the lion’s share of the wickets.  Chalfont put up some early resistance but folded after the openers went to finish on a total of 116 all out in just 27 overs.

116 looked like an easy target, but with a relatively weak batting side nothing could be left to chance.  Evans and Collins opened the batting and progressed steadily towards the target, enjoying a relatively benign bowling attack.  Evens fell for 25 while Collins was knocking on the door of a half century when he was caught for 48.  This was the last batting of note, with the remainder of the runs being mopped up amongst the rest of the team.  A good win and the first of many!
