Ashby Hastings Cricket Club Won 24 points

Match report The Gods were shining on Ashby Hastings 2nd XI away at Hinckley Town in this John German sponsored Leicestershire County Cricket League Division 5 match. With rain pouring down all around Leicestershire and various fixtures being abandoned, Hastings took full advantage and a maximum 24 points at Hinckley amazingly not having any rain.

Ashby wonthe toss and asked Hinckley to bat on what looked a good wicket.
Hastings opening bowler Luke Jenkinson struggled to find any rhythm bowling uphill with a strong cross wind with no reward. It was left to the two Neil’s, Pitchers and Harris to try and carve an opening in the Hinckley top order. It was Pitchers that got the breakthrough with Town batsmen Wilson, edging to Dave Marriott to take a smart catch a first slip. Pitchers claimed another scalp bowling Peel first ball and Hinckley were on the back foot at 52 for 2 from 7 overs.
Harris, like Jenkinson before, struggled and was replaced by the inform spinner Sam Perkins and at the other end Marriott replaced the hard working Pitchers.
These two as the previous week, bowled in tandem and carved the Hinckley batsmen in to submission. Marriott continuing to bowl a straight line claiming 4 wickets and Perkins getting in the batsmen faces were too good for the wagging Town’s batsmen. Perking picking up 3 wickets along the way as Hinckley’s batsmen collapsed to 155 all out.
It took only 25 overs for Hastings to finish Hinckley off. Ben Evans showed his intentions early on by charging the Hinckley batsmen and made a rapid 42 before being caught. Ashby’s two inform batsmen Chris Dooley (52 not out) and Matt Joyce (38 not out) cruised to the finish line as Hasting ran out comfortable winners for the loss of only Evan’s wicket.
