CRICKET

CHE­SHAM picked up 15 points after they drew away to Wokingham on Satur­day.

Che­sham won the toss and elected to bat and from the off bat­ted well, with the runs shared around and built from a bril­liant 90 from Matthew Warner and 57 from Ja­son Rance.

The pair were well sup­ported by Robin Pritchard’s 27 and Andy Goddard’s un­beaten 30. Josh Drage, on his de­but, scored 33 not out as Che­sham pushed on and at one stage looked at get­ting over 320, but set­tled on 291-5 in 58 overs.

Wokingham came out of the blocks quickly with an open­ing part­ner­ship of 38 and Wokingham’s top or­der did all they could to try and chase the runs.

Che­sham took wick­ets at reg­u­lar In­ter­vals, with Rance tak­ing 4-60, and pegged Wokingham back to 229-8 off 53 overs to tie the game.

In Divi­sion 2A, Che­sham II were in­volved in an high-scor­ing draw against Maiden­head & Bray.

Maiden­head won the toss and in­vited Che­sham to bat, a de­ci­sion that back­fired when Che­sham amassed 297-6 off 52 overs as Jamie Anderson scored 109, Mark Hughes-D’aeth 68 and Henry White 66.

In re­ply, Maiden­head played very pas­sive and fin­ished on 196-9 with Chris Roy­als 4-56 and Alex Good­man 3-16.

In Divi­sion 5A, Che­sham III were soundly beaten by Stoke Green. Stoke Green won the toss and chose to bat, scor­ing 301-7 inside 40 overs. They then bowled Che­sham out for 140 to win by 161 runs.

In Divi­sion 8B, Che­sham IV were beaten by Mar­low Park. Che­sham won the toss and chose to bat but were all out for 73. In re­ply, Mar­low Park chased the tar­get down inside ten overs for the loss of two wick­ets to win by eight wick­ets.

On Sun­day, the women’s team beat Fl­itwick by six wick­ets. Cap­tain Tracy Sturges won the toss and chose to bowl, prov­ing to be a suc­cess­ful choice, with Fl­itwick bowled out for a to­tal of 82 runs.

An­other fine bowl­ing per­for­mance from Lorett Bre­denkamp (5–13) and ex­cel­lent bowl­ing from Jess Hold­ship with good fig­ures of 2–18 led the at­tack.

This bowl­ing per­for­mance was backed up by steady bat­ting, with key runs scored by Alice Burgham, who got a to­tal of 18, and Sue Hold­ship with a use­ful 16.

Debu­tant Lara Daruka got a key wicket and im­por­tant runs to fin­ish the game.
