Abridge beat Lyndhurst by 32 runs

Match Report

Abridge were again pushed close by Lyndhurst, who produced a good all-round performance.

Put into the field in very hot conditions, Lyndhurst set about their task well, with Kieran in particular bowling a very economical spell. Liam picked up 3 wickets as Abridge kicked on, and despite some great commitment in the field, particularly from newcomer Dave, they were able to push the run-rate up considerably. From their 40 overs they made 207-5.

Lyndhurst didn't get off to the best of starts, with both opening batsmen dismissed fo 12. Speedy, however, put up sterling resistance for his 16, repaying the faith shown in him by the hierarchy to bat him at 4. However, even his excellent innings was overshadowed by Dave, who (having apparently not played cricket in the best part of 10 years) came out and bludgeoned 43 with some lovely through-the-line hitting in just 40 balls. When he went, Jono and Abridge prospect Toby were dismissed cheaply, but some excellent lower-order batting from Liam and Warren brought Lyndhurst to within 40 of their target.

Unfortunately it would not prove enough to see Lyndhurst home, but with Warren's 6 into the flats on the last ball of the innings, one of the better batting performances of the season came to a close. Abridge is always a tough place to go (we haven't won there since 2004) but this was an encouraging performance in many respects, particularly Dave and Liam's batting performances.

Weeks since Kev last dismissed: 11.
