Ashby Hastings Cricket Club 2nd XI v Quorn 2nd XI on Sat 02 Aug 2008 at 2:00
Ashby Hastings Cricket Club Won By 201 runs

Match report Ashby Hastings second XI had a superb chance to stretch the gap between themselves and 3rd place in their bid for promotion. They played bottom of the league Quorn.
Once again the toss was lost by Ashby who were forced to bat, this decision by the Quorn captain was soon to be regreted as Ashby made a massive score of 278 for the loss of only 3 wickets. Quorn didn't get off to a bad start removing Adam Hoult for just 11 runs. Ashby Hastings veteran Ben Evans however was not dismissed so easily, he smashed the ball around the park and made a superb 117 with the support of Chris Dooley (39) and Jenkinson (75 not out). Ashby declared after 40 overs so they had more overs to bowl Quorn out, so 278 off 40 overs was a superb effort.
Quorn came out to bat and from ball one it was obvious they just wanted to bat the overs and earn some draw points. This was displayed by opener Cox who batted for 35 overs and made 7 runs, an absolutely thrilling effort for everybody to watch. He was later dismissed by Jenkinson who hit the top off his off stump with an absolute beauty. Cox was the only man to put up real resistance and Ashby easily bowled out Quorn for 77. With a superb spell of bowling from Luke Jenkinson who finished with 6 wickets for just 18 runs. Poole, Harris, Dooley and Hoult all chipped in with a wicket each and Ashby took the full 24 points from this game.
Ashby seconds make the long trip to Illston Abbey next week to take on top of the league and a win could see them move to the top of the league, and see them one step closer to securing promotion to Division 4.
