Hayden and Neville guide side to victory
Published 07/07/14



THE heavy rain and storms on Saturday forced many of the local cricket matches to be abandoned or cancelled.

Of the matches played, KIDMORE END were on the losing end of a draw at BEACONSFIELD in Division 1 in a rain-affected match which concluded at 8.30pm.

Having won the toss Kidmore End chose to bowl and after seven overs the score was 40-0 as both sides left the field due to a deluge of rain.

The game was then reduced from 37 to 33 overs. This meant when play resumed at 4.15pm the batsmen would bat aggressively.

With short boundaries in three directions keeping the scoring down was difficult. Defending the boundaries was made harder following an injury to Guy Ashby.


Beaconsfield went hard at the Kidmore bowlers and only when Alex Crawford was bowling to the right handed batsmen on the Beaconsfield side did the fielding team look on top.

Francis and Morgan batted well and Kidmore End were looking at chasing more than 200 runs. However, a late flurry of wickets due to fine fielding from Gregor Hearn, who picked up a catch and forced a run out, slowed the Beaconsfield scoring in the last few overs.

This late cluster of wickets meant momentum had swayed from Beaconsfield back to Kidmore End in the last few overs of the first innings as the hosts ended on 190-6.

Kidmore End carried this impetus into their innings as David New got the run chase off to a flyer hitting the ball to the boundary with disdain.

When Joe Dixon fell shortly afterwards, Beaconsfield were in the ascendancy and with light failing it was the fielding team that started to struggle.

Joe Waldron and Tom Sheldon put together a fine batting partnership as they thrashed the ball to the boundary with force and ruthlessness, striking sixes and fours with equal rapidity.

In the dying overs the game swung back to the hosts as new batsmen found it hard to maintain the scoring speed and struggled to adjust to the light.

In the last three overs Kidmore End batsmen James Frost and Michael Jones were forced to see the game to a drawn conclusion on 154-8.

HENLEY 3rds took advantage of theirs being the only Division 3A game played as they defeated FALKLAND2nds at Shiplake College.

With rain falling during the early afternoon play could not start until 3.15pm with the match reduced to a 70 over game.

Falkland elected to bat on winning the toss and were soon in trouble as Neville and Hopkins claimed two soft wickets in the first two overs. Neville was particularly troubling the Falkland batsmen with his inswing and picked up another scalp.

Falkland’s innings took another turn for the worse as spinners Kazmi and Hayden were introduced into the attack. Kazmi bowled impressively altering his pace and flight to good effect, managing to pick up 5-33 as Falkland were bowled out for 96. In reply Henley got off to a good start with openers Chappell and Price looking untroubled. However, the Falkland spinners started to to cause problems as Henley’s middle order collapsed.

Nathan Hopkins hit an important 22 but was bowled with the score on 90. It was left to Hayden and Neville to guide Henley over the line.

HENLEY 4ths lost out away to MARLOW 2nds in Division 7B.

Winning the toss the visitors elected to bat first and put on 186-5. In reply Marlow eased to 189-1 to win the match in just 26.3 overs.
