Ivanhoe v Mayfield – 25 July 2015

On a day when only 5 wickets fell (and one fielder, namely Den who intercepted a throw by Jonathan with his head and had to be taken temporarily to hospital where thankfully no lasting damage was found), Richard made no mistake this week in making his maiden ton for the club when in reply to Mayfield’s 197 for 3 he batted through the innings for an unbeaten 132 not out and with Phil P (60no) saw the Ives to a magnificent win by 8 wickets  with 6 overs to spare in an unbroken 3rd wicket stand of 176 in 24 over.

Earlier having been reduced to 9 men in the field as Andy H chauffeured Den to hospital, Ciaran took 2 for 32 aided by catches by Phil K and Jonathan and Saqib took the only wicket to fall, but that was only the hors d’oeuvre to the main course that followed.
