Princes Risborough CC 1st XI v Bledlow Village Cricket Club Saturday 1st on Sat 22 Apr 2017 at 13.00
Bledlow Village Cricket Club Won By 161 Runs

Match report A very strong Bledlow XI made the short trip to Princes Risborough CC for their second friendly of the season. Tom won the toss and elected to bat on what looked like a typically good Risborough pitch. Olly and Marcus opened the batting and things got off to a slow start as the PRCC opening bowlers stuck to a disciplined line outside off stump. However it wasn't long before Olly had had enough and began to play aggressively, almost a shot a ball, with mixed results. Marcus was the first man out for just 4 as he feathered one through to the wicket keeper. Tom came in and looked composed at the crease, putting away the bad balls which were now coming more frequently as the opening bowlers seemed to tire. Once the change bowlers came on, both Olly and Tom tucked in and the score rocketed along at more than a run a ball in a partnership worth over 100. A lapse of concentration saw Olly run out for 91 whilst he was backing up, but this only didn't slow the scoring rate, as Will quickly got into his stride and carried on his form from the previous week. Another run out saw Tom depart for 87 with Bledlow looking to accelerate the scoring even further. Carnage ensued as Charlie and Will put the bowling to the sword, both racking up quick fire fifties to push the score past 300. Bledlow finished on 318-5 from their 45 overs and were delighted going into the tea interval.

Bledlow's domination continued after the break as by Hawkesy and Pearcey picked up early wickets with some good bowling. The momentum was continued by the change bowlers as Reckers and Mouldy both got into the act with wickets of their own. The procession was completed as spin twins Reg and Marcus mopped up the tail with two wickets each. The innings ended on 157 all out, seeing Bledlow win comprehensively by 161 runs.

A strong all-round performance from Bledlow with everybody contributing, excellent preparation for the season.
