Liss Cricket Club 1st XI v Ashford Hill on Sat 25 May 2013 at 2.00pm
Liss Cricket Club Won By 10 wickets

Match report After a lot of hard work to get the game on Liss won the toss and elected to bowl first. Jacob Hedicker and Paddy Cowell opened the bowling and Cowell struck with his 4th delivery trapping the opener lbw for just 7. Cowell continued to bowl well and Hedicker found his rhythm and picked up his first wicket leaving Ashford hill 20-2. The visitors other opening bat was going for the aggressive style and every shot went flying through the air and chances were missed. He moved the score on quickly before being caught for 42 of the bowling of Hedicker. It was now time for the father son bowling combination of Richard Pleace snr and Richard Pleace jnr. Both bowlers struck early and pinned Ashford hill back to 74-5 and the halfway stage. The batsmen seemed determined not to give their wicket away and the run rate slowed right down and only 14 runs were added off the next 10 overs. With only 10 overs to go the total was just 88 so chances needed to be taken. The runs started to come before Liss struck with a run out quickly followed by Pleace jnr picking up his 2nd dismissal. Phil Moore came into the attack and took the 8th wicket before the overs were up and Liss were set a target of 128 to win the game.

The track had been drying out slowly during the game and was starting to move around so Liss had to concentrate to chase this down without too much damage. Pleace jnr and Moore opened up and started very steady. Ashford’s bowlers found their line and length and created chances. After a few dropped catches both batsmen started to find their feet. Liss seemed to be in complete control and after 15 overs they were 60 without loss. The visiting team tried and variety of bowlers but both Pleace jnr and Moore brought up their 50’s and reached the total with 12 overs to spare. Two wins form two has been a great for Liss in this new league.
