Andover Cricket Club 2nd XI (Sat) v Basingstoke & NH III on Sat 17 Jun 2017 at 2pm
Andover Cricket Club Lost Lost By 48 runs

Match report Test Valley Windows sponsored Andover 2s hosted Basingstoke's 3rd team last saturday on a scorching summers day.

Andover lost a crucial toss and were asked to field first in the midday heat. Andover worked well to keep the scoring down early on, but Basingstoke kept wickets in hand; setting a solid platform for 102-2 after 30 overs, from which they could accelerate towards 200. In the 30 degree heat, Andover stuck to their task well, with captain James Knight rotating his bowlers efficiently to keep them fresh. Despite running well between the wickets and worked whatever they could to they boundary, Basingstoke finished on 219-6,some 30 runs below and a great return for the town side.

Andover lost Nauyital early in response, but began to gather momentum through Thompson (34) and Duckworth (46). After 9 overs Thompson began to tire a started taking the attack to Basingstoke, before skying one up into the air and being well caught. Duckworth then took control and provided a bedrock for the innings. He batted very sensibly as wickets fell around him at regular intervals. When he fell, Andover were on 136 - 6 and struggling. Some clean hitting by Olly Cox gave brief hope to Andover but ultimately they lost too many wickets and finished on 181 - 9.

Anther disappointing batting performance undoing the Town side, who hope to bounce back against East Woodhay next week.
