Ivanhoe v Hatch End – 14 June 2014

Put into bat on an unpredictable wicket Hatch End started well putting on 30 before 3 quick wickets put the Ives on top. But despite wickets continuing to fall Hatch End, with 63 from Lawrence, together with good support from the other batsmen, closed on 185 for 9 and a higher score than looked likely at one point and one that looked like it might be difficult to chase down. There were wickets for Ciaran, Andy H and Earle, and 3 each for Adrian and Richard with catches for Earle, Joe and Richard.

In reply Andy H went early before Ciaran and Den put on 48 for the 2nd wicket. A quick fire 22 from Richard gave hope of chasing down the Hatch End score but it was not to be with Ives finding themselves on 106 for 8, and with Chris P unable to bat a 9th wicket stand of 35 from Adrian (14no) and Malcolm (16) was not enough to win the game.
