Andover Cricket Club 2nd XI (Sat) v Basingstoke II on Sat 29 Apr 2017 at 1pm
Andover Cricket Club Lost 7 wickets

Match report The Test Valley Windows sponsored Andover 2nd XI side prepared for their league season with a friendly fixture against Basingstoke last saturday at Arsenal.

Andover won the toss and asked to bat in blustery conditions. A slow pitch without many demons, allowed opener Andy Sale and new signing Ashok Nauyital combined well to get Andover to 75 before Nauyital was bowled by an excellent swinging delivery. Sale was then at the crease by Shaun Attwood, returning from an ultimately unsuccessful overseas cricketting career in New York. they both played well with Sale reaching 42 and Attwood 27 before falling in quick succession. This then sparked a collapse as the middle order succumbed to some excelet spin bowling to be bowled out for 152, despite some strong reaguard batting from Joe Crawford (21) and James Knight (4 not out).

In response, Andover opener bowled well, creating pressure and snaring two early wickets. Rowan Duckworth (2 - 27) was particularly impressive eon his rerturn form a throat injury. Basingstoke II regrouped thereafter however and began to put partnerships together as Andover struggled to find a consistent length. A late wicket for Tom Morton was a consolation as Basingstoke romped home to a 7 wicket win.

A brave performance by a young andover side, who face Easton and Martyworthy tomorrow as they hope to ge their league campaign off to a winning start
