Bledlow Village Cricket Club Saturday 1st v Leighton Buzzard CC 1st XI on Sat 24 Jun 2017 at 12.30
Bledlow Village Cricket Club Lost By 9 Wickets

Match report Bledlow kicked off a vital weekend of cricket with a top of the table clash against Leighton Buzzard at the Bledlow Oval. Tom lost the toss and Bledlow were asked to bat first.
Matt and Olly got off to an excellent start, reaching 82 off just 11 overs before Olly was bowled for a quick fire 58. Things went downhill from there as 3 more quick wickets fell to leave Bledlow 94-4. A partnership between Charlie and Mouldy looked like getting the team back on track until Charlie chipped the ball to mid off for 24 with the score on 134. From then it was only captain Tom who offered any resistance with 40 not out before the innings finished on 204.
Bledlow knew that they must take early wickets in order to get back on top in the match but they never materialised. Buzzard got off to a fast start and Bledlow were never able to recover, with most of the bowlers being smashed to the boundary at regular intervals. The sole wicket fell with the score on 157 but it wasn't much longer before the match was over. Buzzard reached the total from just 29.3 overs to complete a comprehensive win and knock Bledlow off the top of the league table.
Next week Bledlow travel to Cropredy looking to get back to winning ways.
