The 1s were at home to High Wycombe 2s. High Wycombe won the toss and elected to bat first. Simon Janes 59 and David Cranfield-Thompson 46 held the innings together and brought them to a respectable 204 for 9 off 52 overs despite tight bowling from Jez Hare 5 for 63 and Kevin May 3 for 44.
However, that total was beyond the 1s with only Jack Kendall getting above 20 with 29 as the 1s subsided to 120 all out in under 30 overs.
A tough day for the 1s as they look to bounce back away at Aldershot 1s.
The 2s visited White Waltham 1s and were put into bat on a good track. Rob Handley 74 and Gary Clarke 66 with a second wicket partnership of 125 helped the 2s to a very good score of 259 for 5 off 52 overs.
White Waltham kept up with the run rate but lost wickets regularly thanks to a great spell by Charlie Dunnett with 7 for 42. But in the end, White Waltham held out for the last wicket with Nikhil Jathavedan staying to the end with 66 not out.
This week the 2s host Bagshot 2s at Locks Ride (as Royal Ascot is on).
The 3s had a bottom of the table clash with Eversley 3s. Eversley elected to bowl first and the opening bowlers Robert Saunders and Stuart Tidbury made it difficult to score runs but the Ascot batsmen held in there. The 3s reached 256 for 8 declared off 51 overs, largely due to a 108 run partnership between Deep Mohain 94 and Dan Mallett 80 not out.
Eversley got off to a flyer and were 34 for 0 off 4.4 over when suddenly the wheels fell off. They collapsed to 56 all out off 16 overs with Tim Howson 5 for 17 and Jacob Parry 3 for 12 being the main Ascot bowlers to complete an unlikely comfortable win.
The 3s are on the road to Sulhamsted & Ufton 2s.
The 4s were the visitors at Boyne Hill 4s. Winning the toss they elected to bat first but despite Nino Trapani’s 32 they only made 119 all out with Jack Spencer-Jones being chief destroyer with 5 for 34.
The 4s needed early wickets but losing both the opening bowlers and then the captain to injury depleted the bowling attack and Boyne Hill made easy work as they reached 123 for 3 off 18.2 overs.
The 4s will look to get back on track with a home match at Yateley against Boyne Hill 3s.
