Ivanhoe was soundly beaten.
But I think we sort of enjoyed the Pitch, the tea, the social atmosphere etc.
Apparently Ivanhoe has had bad experiences with teams whose Name includes the word “Casual”!!
Nothing casual about these Chaps other than the casual way the ball repeatedly disappeared over the boundary.
Uxbridge Casuals batted first and scored 341 for the loss of 7 wickets, calling a halt to their innings with 7 overs left!!!
4 of their players got the runs – 1 century and 3 50’s.
Pick of the bowlers were Peter (3-53) and Andrew (3-62). Nice outfield catch by Ciaran and a constant stream of wise-cracks from
newbie John who also got his first wicket for the club!!
But no bowler, I believe, was spared from the constant barrage of 6’s. The dual carriageway, Bowls club and Tennis courts were
all recipients of some truly enormous smashes!
Ivanhoe then batted and was all out for 131; Nice innings from Richard (36), Phil (24), and Steven (18) who was unlucky to be given out to
a rather high full toss.
