Andover Cricket Club 2nd XI (Sat) v OT's & Romsey II on Sat 26 May 2018 at 13:00
Andover Cricket Club Lost by 22 runs

Match report Andover 2nd XI hosted OTs & Romsey last week, looking to get their first win of the season. On a moist wicket Andover won the toss and elected to bowl first. Aidan Jansen made the breakthrough in his first over, removing Wood for a duck to give Andover the perfect start. He was backed up excellently by Tom Morton, who struck took thee quick wickets, to leave OTs in a hole at 70 for 5. This soon became 99 for as the impressive Hugo Orange claimed two more victims. OTs rebuilt through the experienced Stuart Shapland who constructed an excellent innings of 40. With some lower order support, they managed to squeeze their way up to 180, before Jansen (3 - 18) finished them off.

Confident that 180 was gettable, Andover set about their chase. Andover made steady progress to begin with but lost wickets at regular intervals to leave the Town side at 70 for 4. It was left to the impressive Hugo Orange (43) and Brandon Smith (35) to anchor the Andover innings. The two batted superbly, running hard between the wickets to nudge the score up to 130. At this point OT introduced spinner Nick Newman into the attack. His off-spin proved too much for Andover to handle and he claimed 4 quick wickets to turn the game on its head and leave ACC 135-9. ALex Thompson and James Knight looked to pull off an improbable victory, but ultimately Andover were bowled out for 158, 22 runs short.

A disappointing result but some excellent individual performances, gives Andover something to take into Burridge away next week.
