Andover Cricket Club 1st XI (Sat) v Portsmouth on Sat 16 Jun 2018 at 12:30
Andover Cricket Club Won 7 wickets

Match report Nordlock sponsored Andover 1st XI steamrolled Portsmouth on Saturday in a game that lasted only 29 overs.
The visitors won the toss and elected to bat on what looked like a decent surface at London Road. Asher Hart and Mike Adams made immediate inroads into the fragile Portsmouth lineup, removing both openers with the score just on 12. It was Adams who then went on to notch career-best figures of 8-19 off 9.3 overs in a devastating spell of swing bowling. The pace-man cleaned bowled four of his victims and had two trapped lbw, and two superbly caught behind by Matt Knight. Skipper Matt Hooper was full of praise for the big opening bowler, ‘he has bowled well all season and has been unlucky not to get more wickets. It was a superb spell of bowling and won the game for us’.
Portsmouth’s batsman failed to get to grips with the bowling with only one player hitting double figures. At 38-9, they were thankful for some mild resistance in an entertaining last wicket partnership that dragged them to 59 all out. Glyn Treagus picking up the other wicket.
The run chase started in positive fashion with Ali Hooper blazing 17 off the first two overs before edging behind. Treagus and Knight then fell in quick succession to leave Nathan Birks and Asher Hart to see the town side home. Birks was particularly ruthless, creaming 23 runs mostly in boundaries whilst Hart played a watchful 14 not out. The game was all over in the ninth over with Andover chasing it down with the loss of just three wickets.
Andover will look to build on this victory when they visit Sarisbury on Saturday.
