Andover Cricket Club 2nd XI (Sat) v Easton & Martyr W I on Sat 18 May 2019 at 13:00
Andover Cricket Club Won By 3 wickets

Match report Nordlock sponsored Andover 2nd XI hosted Easton and Martyr Worth 1st XI last Saturday, looking to secure back-to-back victories to start the year for the first time since 2009.

Skipper James Knight won the toss and did not hesitate in asking Easton to bat first on a damp, grassy surface. Olly Cox (2-29) produced superb early spell, removing dangerous all-rounder Jamie Banks for 0 in the third over to give the hosts an early inroad. Ollie Palmer was brought in to the attack early and his leg spin kept things tight, taking two key wickets in the process to leave Easton at 75-4 at drinks. Easton clawed their way back into the game in the second, thanks to some wayward bowling form the town side and sensible batting from their middle order, despite a miserly spell from Arun Ganesh (1-19). They managed to get up to 191-9 at tea, not far off a par score.

A rain delay shortly after the second innings resumed, left Andover requiring 146 from 38 overs. Make shift opener James Knight (25) got the town side off to a solid start, putting on 60 for the first wicket with Kelum Watta (58*). An explosive cameo from Harri Williams of 23 from just 10 balls pushed Andover past the 100 mark. However, the tide then turned as Easton struck with 5 wickets in fairly quick succession to leave Andover 135-7. Amidst the carnage around him Kelum Watta remained calm, carrying his bat throught the innings and picking off the winning runs to give the town side an ultimately comfortable 3 wicket win.

The seconds travel to Old Tauntonians & Romsey next week, looking for a 3 match winning streak.
