[no Sunday match]
New Ash Green v Hunton Wanderers - A very warm day. New Ash Green were inserted and struggle to build partnerships against the opposition bowling attack. Whilst all batsmen contributed, New Ash Green finished out their 40 overs on a likely under par 139-9. Top scorers M Bushe (29*), G Wale (23) and extras (27).
After tea, despite taking wickets New Ash Green found themselves unable to constrain the opposition sufficiently to defend their own score and Hunton Wanderers claimed the win in the 36th over with 2 wickets in hand. Leading wicket-takers were I Mellor (3-32), G Wale (2-25) & R Wills (2-34). Catches largely being the order of the day in both innings, J Nash gathering up 3 for New Ash Green, Wale, Bushe & P Sumner taking one a piece. Though obviously disappointed to break their winning streak of 6 back-to-back victories, New Ash Green can take consolation in that they still sit comfortably in the No 2 position in the League.
