TONDU .................... 282-3 CHEP­STOW ............ 183-9

TWO sides in fine form faced each other in this Di­vi­sion 1 2nd XI league clash, with Tondu be­ing un­de­feated and Chep­stow, los­ing just one fix­ture this sea­son. Chep­stow won the toss and elected to field but would be in for a dif­fi­cult af­ter­noon field­ing in­nings where Tondu would take charge. Richard Ready, in fine bat­ting form for Tondu, would smash his way to an ex­cel­lent 110 runs and put his team on the front foot.

And when Ready’s team­mate, Gavin Davies, de­cided to outscore him and hit an as­tound­ing 118, it looked like Tondu would con­tinue their un­de­feated start to the sea­son. Chep­stow be­gan their in­nings well, and a half-cen­tury from Thomas Franklin would give them a glim­mer of hope in outscor­ing the home side. How­ever, with Tondu bowl­ing so well, as Lay­ton Wil­l­liams, Richard Ready and Craig Townsend all tak­ing two wick­ets and Mor­gan Parry tak­ing three, Chep­stow saw their chances fad­ing away. They would lose all but one wicket by the fix­ture’s close and Tondu would end vic­to­ri­ous by 99 runs.
