WINNING STREAK DRAWS TO A CLOSE

Ley Hill 265-6; Taplow 2nd XI 180-7

Minor problems off-field before the match - umpire Matthew Harman was stuck in traffic on the M25 and two of the Taplow players were also delayed. However, the game started at 1.15 with Ley Hill winning the toss and deciding to bat. They found scoring runs to be hard going at first until they became used to the longer boundaries than we have at Ley Hill, but both openers were going well when captain Craig Peterson was caught behind for only 13 runs. Ollie Runswick followed shortly afterwards (25 runs) which brought Lewis Thompson to the crease to join No 3 batsman Justin Hutchins. Thompson quickly departed again after facing only 8 balls and without scoring, but Hutchins stayed put and put on 67 with Ben Ford before he was LBW on 55. Suranga Daluwatta joined Ford at the crease and scored 30 before being caught (stand of 60), but Ford pressed on and with Max Lee as his new partner, put on 70 before falling victim to the bowling of Nick Malik (95 runs). Lee was not out 26 and Craig Ottaway not out 4. Ley Hill score 265 for 6. In reply, Taplow made a disastrous start, losing their first four wickets for only 39 runs. However Farhad Abbas arrived at the wicket as No 7 and steadied the innings with 51 runs. Gavin Street scored 34 and Andy Bond(11 not out) stubbornly stayed put to earn Taplow a draw. Wickets were shared between Craig Ottaway (2), Chris Morris (2), Suranga Daluwatta (2) and 15-year old Tristan Reynolds (1). Taplow 180-7.
