Portsmouth v Andover Cricket Club 1st XI (Sat) on Sat 18 Aug 2018 at 12:30
Andover Cricket Club Lost 60 runs

Match report Nordlock sponsored Andover 1st XI crashed to a 60 run defeat to Portsmouth to leave them third from bottom and requiring one win from their final two outings or other results to go their way. The town side started the day well, winning the toss and choosing to field first. They then made early in-roads with Asher Hart taking 1-20 off his ten overs, Matt Hooper picking up two wickets and Aidan Jansen striking as well, Portsmouth were on the ropes at 67-4. However, a superb 90 run partnership between captain Jack Marston (53) and Vikram Dawson (40) steadied the ship and took the home side to a handsome total. Jansen was brought back and he soon removed Marston, well caught by Matt Hooper and Charlie Ayers ripped out Dawson to the tail to do the rest of the damage. Ayers picked up another wicket, clean bowling Prad Bains after some lusty blows and then he ran out Andrew Marston to leave Portsmouth on an imposing 191-8 off their 50 overs.

The run-chase started badly losing Asher Hart with just 3 runs on the board. A 40 run partnership between Max Romer-Lee and Glyn Treagus looked to be setting a nice platform for Andover but the pair fell in quick succession. From that point, Andover lost wickets with regularity and never looked liked chasing down the above-par total. The only resistance came from Josh Ballantine-Dykes who struck a gritty 35 before chipping to mid-off. He was one of five Joseph Kooner-Evans' wickets. The pace-man bowled a devastating spell of 5-28 to derail the Andover innings. A late flurry from injured Ali Hooper (21) got the town an extra batting point but that was the best they could hope for.

Andover host Sarisbury on Saturday and will be looking to fire on all cylinders once again in a quest to maintain their division one status.
