Ivanhoe v Aldenham -30 August 2014

Time game this week. Aldenham are put in. Good opening spells from both Ciaran and Andy. Andy ending up with 2-31 from 2 spells of 13 overs, as good as his bowled all year. Ciaran from his two spells of 13 overs ending up with 1-51 and what I can recall plenty of drop catches he could have bagged 5 this week. First change bowlers Lawrence 1-51 and Richard 1-56 and again drops of his bowling.

Ground fielding a vast improvement from last week, shame about the number of dropped catches. Aldenham are 188-5 from 45 overs.

Batting. Opening this week with Den is Jamie. After a early exist from Den, Jamie is joined by Richard. A fine 2nd wicket partnership of 74 with Jamie scoring 22 and Richard with overdue 54 from some solid blows.

At the 20 overs mark we are all set up for a tight end, but with the change of bowlers scoring gets harder. With the departure of Jamie and then Richard, followed by Phil k; Phil p and AD at the crease.

With runs getting harder to get and the bowlers not taken wickets, the needle starts. Wicket Keeper/Captain starts up, with the sledging backed up from the field and the bowlers. After that Phil and AD DIG in and ride the storm, with the score at 128-4 from 36 OVERS.
