Bledlow Ridge CC v Bledlow Village Cricket Club Sunday 1st on Sun 30 Apr 2017 at 13:00
Bledlow Village Cricket Club Won By 153 Runs

Match report Our first national village cup game of the year took us to Bledlow Ridge.

After we had all arrived, had a kickabout and a chat, Tom got our warm up on the way with a slow lap around the windy Ridge ground

After Tom lost the toss and we were asked to bat, Olly and Tom opened with high confidence having faced some weak competition in friendlies so far.

The problem with that was, when Olly 1st faced two wide balls he wasn't expecting the next one to be straight and bowl him.
Charlie at three done a good job with Tom building a partnership and scoring regularly. After what appeared to be controversial dismissal the danger man walked to the crease, and with Tom not lasting much longer Will quickly became crucial to stopping a collapse.
After Marcus had gone back to one failing to bounce he was trapped plum LBW. Reg made sure he hung around and played an experienced innings, allowing Will to eventually unleash carnage. with some extraordinary hitting although the wind helped(tom Moore hit a six) Will racked up a 151 helping Bledlow Village reach 272 in our overs.

After a satisfactory tea The team headed back out into the grey conditions.
As the senior Matt Pearce had selected to come down the hill Reckers was left to open the bowling up it.
Tidyidy starts from both meant the Ridge were soon three down, Pearcy claiming both their 1 and 2.
With the ridge on 28 for 3 in the 9th over looked to be struggling, Tom changed both bowlers bringing on Marcus and Kingy to further turn the screw.
Once the game was as good as over with Kingy and Marcus taking 2 each, Tom utilised Roger, Basu and man of the match Will who cleaned up the final two wickets!

The Ridge finishing on 119 and a solid win against the locals starts off what we hope to be a promising National Village Cup run.
