Crazies Hill stand firm for draw with Stonor
Published 09/06/14



CRAZIES HILL managed to hold out for a draw against Stonor thanks to an 80-run seventh-wicket partnership from Reiss Simpson and Ian Stuart.

Having won the toss and elected to field, Crazies started brightly as Searle and Freed took early wickets to leave Stonor three wickets down inside 12 overs, thanks largely to a couple of good catches by Hanton.

When Hanton completed his catching hat-trick to remove S Harris off Nick Pritchard-Gordon then expertly ran out opener Powell for 34, Stonor looked in trouble with five down for less than 60.

However, Ian Harris joined Hoiles and began to rebuild the innings.

Once Harris had played himself in, he began to dispatch any wayward deliveries to the boundary with increasing regularity.


Harris dominated the Crazies’ bowlers before being removed by Hanton for 85 in the penultimate over and leading Stonor to a respectable 184 all out.

Crazies’ innings got off to a slow start as accurate bowling from S Harris and Warren had Swift and Parker tied up.

Then Warren removed them both in consecutive overs to leave Crazies 22-2.

Runs remained at a premium as Pritchard-Gordon and Reiss Simpson struggled to get the ball through the field and when Pritchard-Gordon tried to accelerate the scoring he was clean bowled by Bradshaw.

With Agar then removing Shilton and Freed in the same over and Mike Simpson two overs later, Crazies were facing defeat at 39-6.

With the run rate now approaching 10 an over and only four wickets remaining, Crazies were left with little option but to play for the draw.

Thanks to an unbeaten 34 from captain, Ian Stuart and 39 from Reiss Simpson, who fell to the penultimate delivery, they managed to salvage it, finishing 123-7.
