HCPCL,D2: First win in 5 for Town despite Nelson ton


Reported by Andrew Holland

Buckingham travelled to already relegated Great Brickhill on Saturday for the return of the 50 over games. The hosts won the toss and elected to bat first.

Skipper Mark Nelson opened the batting and scored quickly from the start forcing Buckingham to switch to spin within the first 10 overs. He dominated an opening partnership of 74 with Rubens Clinton (20) before the latter was trapped lbw by Jack Deal. Another wicket for Deal and one for Jack Parish followed to leave the score 92 for 3 when Jilesh Pattni joined Nelson at the crease. Nelson passed 50 (30 balls), and continued to score freely at one end, Pattni scoring just 1 run in the first 40 runs of their partnership. With his 17th boundary Nelson brought up an 80 ball century, and went on to make 118 (89 balls) before being run out dropping his bat as he crossed the crease. That was the first of 7 wickets in 48 balls for just 10 runs as Great Brickhill slipped from 171 for 3 to 181 all out. George Humphries was the main destroyer taking 5 wickets for 4 runs in 3 overs (including a triple wicket maiden) to finish with 5 for 35 against his former club.

In reply James Wagg struck early as Rob Large was bowled not playing a shot. Leigh Tomlinson (34) and Ash Pearson (28) came together and scored at close to 5 an over as they put on 70 for second wicket before both falling in consecutive overs to Wagg and Marcus Critchley. Wagg bowled his 10 overs straight through, finishing with 2 for 36, and was replaced by Drew Burrows who took 2 wickets in 2 balls in his second over as the Buckingham chase slipped to 97 for 5. Jack Parish came in to join skipper Jonny Cater, and the pair steadied the innings with a busy partnership of 48. Parish scored 22 at better than a run a ball but fell to the returning Critchley with victory in sight. Nuwan Jayasena came in at number 8 and struck three 4s and two 6s and a 14 ball 28 not out as, alongside Cater who finished 39 not out, he saw Buckingham home to a 4 wicket win.

HCPCL D2: First win in seven for Town

 

Reported By Andrew Holland

Without a win in their 6 Home Counties timed games so far Buckingham travelled to Datchet on Saturday looking to get their season back on track. The hosts won the toss and elected to bat first.

Chris Peploe and Steve Naylor opened up for Datchet, putting on 22 before both fell in consecutive overs. Firstly, Naylor was given out caught behind off Josh Nix before Peploe fell to the same dismissal off Callum Price. Eswar Krishnamurthy and Gareth Harte came to the wicket, and after a slow start began to build a partnership and increase the rate once the opening bowlers were replaced. They had put on 61, with Harte doing the majority of the scoring, when Krishnamurthy was bowled by Jack Parish for 20. Harte went on to reach his 50 (85 balls) as Datchet reached lunch on 106 for 3.

Buckingham started with the spinners after lunch, and Harte and James Morris played positively as they scored 54 runs in the first 8 overs of the session. Harte again dominated a partnership of 87, and had reached 89 when he was bowled by Will Thompson. Nix bowled Morris in the next over for 35 before Thompson took 2 more as Datchet lost four wickets for three runs in in just 15 balls. Adam Jones struck some late boundaries but the Buckingham bowlers didn’t release the pressure as they wrapped up the innings to bowl Datchet out for 207. Thompson took 5 for 62 while Nix finished with 3 for 39.

The run chase didn’t start well for Buckingham as Tom Lambert removed both opening batsmen inside the first 10 overs as Buckingham moved to 37 for 2. Rob Large and Jonny Cater came together and saw the visitors through to tea with a partnership of 35 leaving the score 72 for 2 from 21 overs.

After tea Chris Peploe kept one end tight for Datchet, but unfortunately failed to find any support from the other as Rob Large was able to score freely against the rest of the bowlers. Well supported by Cater, he brought up his 50 from 59 balls as he quickly brought the required number of runs down below 100. The pair put on 116 and Large was looking well set for his century when he was adjudged lbw by the returning Lambert for 91 (100 balls). Peploe followed that up by removing Ash Pearson for a duck as Datchet briefly sensed a chance to get back into the game, however Cater kept calm and continued on towards the target. Buckingham did lose Simon Myatt for 16 with 20 runs still needed for victory, but Cater saw them over the line to win by 5 wickets as he finished 49 not out. The win takes Buckingham back above their hosts and into fourth place in the league.
