Ivanhoe v Arkley – 13 July 2013

Mentally wrung out after watching England just pull off a last gasp Ashes victory so nothing left to write a match report of any length.

Suffice to say on another hot sunny afternoon, in a time game, Arkley scored 208 for 7 with a century for their opener Candy (118no) assisted by a couple or more missed chances to remove him. Andy H took 3 for 80 in 14 overs, and their was one wicket for Richard and 2 for Earle in an excellent spell of 2 for 32 in 7 overs, with one run out.

In reply promoted to open, Richard (36) with Den (58) put on 103 for the 1st wicket in 19 overs but when both were dismissed in successive overs followed quickly by Bob and Phil P and the momentum was lost despite Adrian (24) and Matt P having a brief flurry. In the end the match petered out as Ives shut up shop with 5 overs to go to close on 162 for 7 and a drawn game.
