Ashley 2nd XI vs Alderley Park 2nd XI (Home) 07/05/2016
Ashley 2s made it 2 wins from 2 in the sunshine against the 8 men of Alderley Park. Skipper lost the toss and Ashley were sent in to bat. John Evans and Andy Murray opened up and were in complete control, putting on a brilliant stand of 185 in 26 overs. Andy was bowled by Gupta for 78, and Digger reached his century soon after off 80 balls accompanied by Alistair Horn. Ashley declared on 208-1 off 29.
Bryan Jones and Najeeb Rawufi opened the bowling, starting off with good line and length testing the patience of the AP openers. BJ soon had Gupta caught behind by Dylan Wimbury, who again showed his great ability behind the stumps. Bryan then had the AP skipper bowled for 1 and the resistant opener Natarajan caught well by Sam Corbishley. Josh Foster picked up 2 wickets bowled before Sam took the 7th and final wicket caught off his own bowling. Overall a very comfortable afternoon for Ashley but have equalled the win tally for 2015 already.
Next week we go to Macclesfield
