On a scorching afternoon in Kent CHCC entertained a touring side from Primrose Hill Cricket Club.
CHCC won the toss and elected to bat. The opening bowlers from Primrose Hill were fact and accurate, both Ted and Bear were unfortunately undone by good deliveries early and CHCC were rocked. Further issues came when Cameron was unable to bat due to injury, however Ewan and Henry then set about the task of steering the ship to steadier waters. Both boys played some nice shots until further good bowling from Primrose Hill saw the end of their innings. Ollie came in a played some nice shots while batting very sensibly, he held the innings together with other boys chipping in for runs that took us to 110 from 20 overs.
Primrose Hill set about their task slowly and carefully with the CHCC boys bowling some great lines. Ben Anderson took a great wicket but the other batsmen proved harder to shift. However the run rate was kept low as CHCC did well to restrict their batsmen to 50 form 10 overs. With wickets in hand and aided by some wayward CHCC bowling Primrose Hill were able to press the accelerator and despite some great bowling from Ted towards the close they passed the CHCC total with one over to spare.
Primrose Hill won by 3 Wkts
A good game on a very hot day, CHCC were hindered by injury and illness but did well against a top side from London who were all district or borough players which showed in their very tight and tidy bowling.
Well done to all involved on a cracking afternoon.
