CHIPPENHAM 4ths v BUSCOT PARK CRICKET CLUB 2nd ELEVEN on Sat 23 Jul 2016 at 13.00

Match report A tough game anticipated against the unbeaten league leaders, Chippenham 4ths. With 9 bowlers in the team (not including Richard Gardiner who was injured and unable to bowl) and missing a number of batsmen due to call ups to the 1st XI, family duties, holiday and a late injury, our game plan was based on keeping the opposition score down and then hoping that someone was able to get a good score.
Buscot did take early wickets but some middle order hitting and lacklustre fielding meant that Chippenham finished on 207-9 after 45 overs. Not a huge score on a good wicket and quick outfield but with an inexperienced batting line up it will be difficult to get close to this.

Charlie Morgan's 4-26 is his best 2nd team league bowling figures beating his previous best of 3-0. Unlucky not to get a 5th wicket when the ball hit the bails but they did not leave the stumps.
Matthew Lawrence took his first catch for the 2's in league cricket and Sanjay Trivedi took his first two catches for the 2nd's.
Best bowling figures of the season so far, 6-1-26-4 by Charlie Morgan.
Charlie's 4-26 has set a new record for the 2nd's best bowling figures in Division 9 beating Patrick Slack's 4-38 away at Goatacre 4's in 2016 (our first season in Div 9).

The Divisional best bowling figures by 2nd XI are ;-

Div A Will Townsend, 8-12 at home to Marlborough 2 in 1994
Div 4 Paul Farmer, 6-55 away at North Bradley in 2008
Div 5 Steve Hughes, 7-23 at home to Beehive Bradford in 2006
Div 6 Will Townsend, 7-28 at home to Westbury 3 in 1986
Div 6b Will Townsend, 6-24 at home to Potterne 2 in 2000
Div 7 Richard Gardiner, 8-31 away at Burbage & ER 3 in 2010
Div 8 Namat Ullah Jabakhail, 6-29 away at Chippenham 4 in 2012
Div 9 Charlie Morgan, 4-26 away at Chippenham 4 in 2016

Charlie Morgan's first run in this game was his 250th league run for the 2nds.
Joshua Court's score of 3 is his highest in league cricket for the 2's so far in his early 2nd XI career.
Matthew Lawrence's score of 1no is his highest in league cricket for the 2's so far in his early 2nd XI career.

Unfortunately we did not get close to the target and 63 all out is the 2nd's 9th lowest ever score batting 2nd in an away game.

2nd's all time record against Chippenham is now Played 10, Won 4, Lost 5, Abandoned 1.

The good news is that we still find ourselves in 4th place so with 6 games to go and our next 2 games against 3rd and 2nd place, we have everything to play for.

Milestones approaching;-
Paul Farmer needs 33 more away runs to reach 1000 away league runs for the 2's.
Richard Gardiner needs 29 more runs to reach 500 league runs for the 2's.
Stuart Burchett needs 7 more runs to reach 250 league runs for the 2's.
