Match Report

A big loss against our mates at Ide Hill. Highlights of the day including Toby Hanington playing for the first time in 2019, where his three innings resulted in three ducks. Another duck today would have completed his "Audi", with much talk about whether he could achieve this and move on to the "Olympic Rings" in his next match. Thankfully for all, Tobes got 30 runs and put this sort of talk to bed.

And that is just as well for the Chairman, Andy Redman, who confessed in the Eltham WhatsApp group the next day that he had been confused by all the talk about "Aldi" during the match.

On a very small ground, large scores are always a possibility and this is a bit of a bowler's graveyard. Eltham managed to keep up with the run rate for a while, but once we started losing wickets we couldn't;t seem to stop, which was disappointing as this was a time game and a draw was a possibility. We lasted until the last three overs before Ricky was undone by bowling that was a little too fast for his liking, but there was no shame in getting out to something of a snorter of a delivery.

Cricket as always was the winner and a couple of beers were enjoyed (courtesy of Matt and Phil - thank you guys) with the oppo after the game, with many laughs as always.
