Ivanhoe v Hillingdon Manor – 21 September 2013

After Hillingdon got off to a quick fire start on a cloudy afternoon it took the intervention of Den (3 for 13 in 5 overs) to bring the scoring rate down and reduce the opposition from 60 for 0 to 79 for 3, aided by catches from Malcolm & Richard. Hillingdon then rebuilt with a century stand before a late wicket from Andy C to a catch by Earle and 2 wickets from Ciaran brought the Hillingdon innings to a close at 200 for 6 at tea.

In reply and in gloomy conditions Ives made a steady start from Andy H (19) and Den (11) before 3 wickets quickly fell. Phil K (21) and Richard (35) restored some order and with Adrian (20) and Earle (31no) making a late charge, Andy C (17no) tried to get the Ives over the line but was left a little too much to do as the innings closed on 188 for 8.
