Ashby Hastings Cricket Club 2nd XI v Ibstock Town 2nd XI on Sat 27 Apr 2013 at 1.30pm
Ashby Hastings Cricket Club Won By 9 Wickets

Match report Ashby Debutants lead the way

On a day of sunshine and showers, Ashby Hastings 2nd XI recorded their first win of the league season with a 9 wicket win over Ibstock Town 2nd XI.

After being asked to bat first, Ibstock suffered at the hands of the swing and pace of Alex Cooper and Gary Edwards. Cooper removed the top 3 batters (in between showers) in quick time. It was then onto Chris Sykes to rip through the Ibstock team with accurate bowling with a wet ball. Only McAllister showed any resistance from the visitors, but when he fell to Sykes, the runs dried up for Ibstock. Sykes ended with figures of 6 for 16 off 6 overs, a fine return on debut.

Following a filling tea, Ashby openers Graeme Edwards and (debutant) Ashu Dahbi set about chasing the target with fine aplomb. Both were watchful, but dismissive of any wayward bowling. Only a skied catch to remove Edwards (28) slowed the scoring. Perkins joined Dahbi as the latter reached a well deserved maiden 50. The pair then saw off remainder of the target with ease, with Dahbi reaching a fine 68.

This coming week Ashby play another local derby against a rivitalised Grace Dieu
