Hampshire Academy v Andover Cricket Club 1st XI (Sat) on Sat 20 May 2017 at 1pm
Andover Cricket Club Lost 10 wickets

Match report Nord-lock sponsored Andover 1st XI went down to the home of cricket in the county, the Ageas Bowl, and were given a lesson in the game by the youngsters in the Hampshire Academy.
Former Hampshire stalwart James Tomlinson skippers the young starlets and he had no hesitation in fielding first on a wet day and a juicy Ageas Bowl track. His experience told when Andover were coming off for the first rain break at 4-3 with star men Storm Green and Glyn Treagus in the hutch. Immediately after the 45 minute break, Andover lost in-form Matt Knight and it was left to Dave Watson to provide some resistance to the strong academy bowling attack. Left arm seamer, Jack Campbell was the pick of the bowlers, ripping out four wickets and bowling with pace, accuracy and hostility.
Watson clung on as wickets around him tumbled but with the score on 38-7, he knew he had to hit out before running out of partners. He was eventually caught on the ropes for a well-made 29 and it effectively ended Andover's chances of making triple figures and posting anything near a defendable total.
Danny Foy and Aidan Jansen fought gallantly at the death but couldn't prevent the town side from being bowled out for a paltry 73 in 29 overs.
As the sun came out and the pitch started to dry out, Andover knew they needed early wickets to stand any chance of snaring a victory. However, openers Duggan and Kantolinna had other ideas as they blazed their way to 74 inside 15 overs, ending Andover's miserable day at the Ageas Bowl.
Although the toss was crucial in this rain-effected match, a below par performance has left Andover rooted to the bottom of the table. They look to bounce back on Saturday when they host second from bottom Burridge at London Road.
