THAMES VAL­LEY CRICKET LEAGUE DI­VI­SION 3B Kew IIs 30 all out Che­nies & La­timer 31-1 SKIP­PER Andy Chap­man ad­mit­ted Satur­day’s nine-wicket ham­mer­ing of Kew sec­onds was the low­est-scor­ing game he has ever played in, writes Tim Street.

Che­nies bowled hap­less Kew out for 30 in just 20 overs, then took just seven overs and the loss of a sin­gle wicket to stroll to victory.

Re­turn­ing over­seas Aussie bowler Liam Jones did the ini­tial dam­age with 6-15 from 11 overs be­fore Rory Bowen helped mop up by tak­ing 3-1 off the fi­nal over.

Chap­man said: “We were talk­ing about it in the dress­ing room af­ter­wards, and it is def­i­nitely the quick­est game we’ve had here, although some­one had played in a 22 all out else­where.

“It was a great start con­sid­er­ing we didn’t even have our strong­est team out. Kew even chose to bat first, but they al­ways do so. Our bowl­ing and field­ing was ex­cel­lent though.”

It was not such a good start, how­ever, for Bea­cons­field in Di­vi­sion One and Chal­font St Peter in Di­vi­sion Four A.

Bea­cons­field (174-6) went down by eight wickets to Wok­ing­ham (175-2), while Chal­font (125), who were rel­e­gated last sea­son, lost by seven wickets to Datchet sec­onds (126-3).
