August 19th2012 at West Chiltington
West Chiltington CC 225 all out in 40 overs (T Monday 111, J Tolson 34; Finn Campbell 8 overs 6 for 32, Andy Long 8 overs 2 for 50).
Lodsworth CC 96 all out (James Hickey 32, Graham Braithwaite 21; Wyatt 5 overs 2 for 31, Woodham 5 overs 2 for 19).
West Chiltington Won.
The West Chiltington skipper won the toss and elected to bat. Both openers Tolson (34) and Monday (111) scored freely with no real Lodsworth answer. Paul Phillips and James Hickey steadied the ship in the middle with the former making a breakthrough by bowling Tolson with the score on 152 for 1. R Laveryn (20) proved to be a stalwart by scoring in singles. Andy Long had the indestructible Monday caught on the boundary by Graham Braithwaite for 111. Finn Campbell’s mighty impressive final four overs for six wicket haul took the opposition’s innings from 206 for 4 to 225 all out.
After a splendid tea Lodsworth were quickly in disarray. West Chiltington have a couple of very good Australian expats. Will Salaman, Paul Phillips and Finn Campbell contributed a total of just 24 runs. Lodsworth wilted under sustained pressure from the oppositions fast bowling attack with Graham Braithwaite (21) and James Hickey (32) the only batsmen offering any resistance before Lodsworth were bowled out for 96 in a heavy defeat.
Man of the Match: Finn Campbell
