Chingford Cricket Club Sat 5th v Ilford 4th on Sat 26 Jun 2010 at 1:00
Chingford Cricket Club Lost by 7 wickets

Match report Another solid opening partnership between Steve Brewer & Blakey set the 5th’s on their way after being put in by Ilford. However, after the openers fell, the Chingford batting failed to perform, with the exception of a stylish 32 from Ben Gordon. There was some optimism that the small total of 151 may be defendable if the 5th’s could get some early wickets.
The opening bowlers, Jack Piper & Chris Watson bowled well and kept the score down but the Ilford openers looked solid. The Ilford openers were temporarily separated when a faster ball from Jack cut through the defences of their number 2 and almost split him in two! The blow to the midriff was severe enough to incapacitate the batsman, who retired to the pavilion for a sit down and a jug of cold water. The unfortunate departure gave the 5th’s a way into the Ilford batting and they took advantage with a piece of clever fielding. Jack Rhodes looked to fumble the ball at square leg and the Ilford pair fell for it. His throw came in and was picked up by Kash who threw down the stumps, almost killing Bill with ball and bails, with the batsman stranded.
Some tight bowling from Kash and Andy Baker, kept up hopes of a draw but even the most optimistic weren’t predicting a Chingford win. A couple of wickets to Kash saw the return of the injured opener and a renewal of the opening partnership. Frustratingly they continued where they left off and patiently knocked off the runs.
