The weather played the most important role in Ashby Hasting’s home tie against Leicester Ivanhoe at the Bath Grounds at the weekend. The rain affected match gave the hosts a losing draw worth 8 valuable points in a game memorable from some powerful hitting from Daniel Rowe and Ollie Hunt.

A late start meant that the game was reduced to 46 overs and after losing the toss Ashby were asked to bat. Rowe and Hunt came together in the 33rd over and together accumulated a partnership of 78 runs to provide a much needed boost to Ashby’s flagging innings. Rowe crashed 61 runs, including 5 sixes whilst Hunt played a good supporting roll with 42 quick runs. Earlier, openers Tom Yates and Sam Carline had made steady progress before Carline was the first to be dismissed in the 10th over for 15. Yates (36) was joined by Byron Ovenstone (28) but the conditions and some tight Ivanhoe bowling made life difficult for the Ashby batters. The contributions of Rowe and Hunt took the score to a respectable 196 for 6.

With more rain at the tea interval, the second innings was reduced to 26 overs which meant that with some careful mathematics the Ivanhoe first target was Ashby’s equivalent 25 over score which was an undemanding 73. Crowe and Punchard set a quick pace and after 3 overs their total was 29. After that start the visitors were always in control of the game and some late big hitting saw Ivanhoe maximise their bonus points closing on 134 for 4 and taking a convincing winning draw. Jamie Colver again the pick of the Ashby bowlers ending with figures of 2-45 of 13 overs.

Unfortunately Ashby’s fielding was punctuated by a series of dropped catches, 7 in all, that if taken could have given the end result a different outcome.

Ashby travel to Syston Town for their next league encounter.
