Chesham B U15's v Great Kingshill U15's
By Richard Bruton
Great Kingshill defeat Chesham B at a damp Chartridge ground
The conditions weren’t good at Chartridge, wicket not bad but outfield fairly wet.
GKCC won the toss and put Chesham into Bat.
The hosts scored 75 for 9 off the 20 overs
Chesham never really got going, with 58 off the bat and 17 extra’s, Finn Andrews started the wickets falling in his second over with a catch at extra cover by Benjamin Barrett, and then a 2nd wicket in his 3rd over. Jack Bridges had two blistering overs - 2 wkts for only 6 runs, also Ollie Webb was on fire with Ball in hand 2 wkts for 13 runs off 3 overs. Zan Chowdhry’s very first ball of his first over clean bowled the No 4 bat and finished 1 wkt for 7 runs off 2 overs. Our bowling and fielding was very good considering the conditions, Benjamin, Max Free and James Keeley all holding their catches. With Ben Priestley sharp behind the stumps our team performance was very pleasing.
Then came our turn to bat, GKCC 79 for 3 off 15.1overs
Both our openers went cheaply, Max Free for 6 and Max Colebeck 5 but Alex Dashwood in at No3 with his big bat hitting a long ball and James Keeley pushing the singles, I was confident these two would bring the score up quickly, James moved onto a nice 12 with 1’s and 2’s before being bowled but by this stage Alex had already hit two 6’s and three 4’s so all Conor Stables had to do was assist him to get to the final score, which Alex did in Alex style with a flat 6 over deep mid-wicket to win the game. Alex finished on 42*
Very well done boys on your first league win
