Dinton v Andover Cricket Club 3rd XI (Sat) on Sat 30 May 2015 at 14.00
Andover Cricket Club Lost by 83 runs

Match report Andover IIIs won the toss and inserted Dinton onto a good looking batting track hoping to extract best use of the new ball and any moisture from the previous day's rain. But Dinton started solidly, safely dispatching any bad balls to the boundary. Ryan Ward acquitted himself well with creditable figure of 10 overs 2 for 21. Unfortunately, line and length deserted the other Andover bowlers too often and Dinton cruised to a formidable 258 for 7 from their 45 overs.

In reply, Andover turned to the veteran pairing of Andy Sale and Charlie Palmer, but both were dismissed early playing rash shots. Andy Holman (24) and Matt Brown (28) steadied the innings but when both were out trying to accelerate the run chase, it looked like a familiar lower order collapse would follow. But the talented 15 year old all-rounder, Ollie Palmer, had other ideas. Demonstrating to his father how to construct an innings, he defended sensibly and clinically dispatched any bad ball to the boundary.

The combination of patient shot selection and impeccable timing allowed Palmer to reach his maiden half century with ease. He went on to score a fantastic 68 before holing out as the overs ran out for the run chase. Andover were dismissed for 175 and were left to rue their wayward bowling.
