2nd X1  v  Ludlow  25th April 2009

This week Madeley 2nd X1 entertained Ludlow 2nd X1 at their picturesque Park Street ground. On a good looking strip Madelay's skipper once again lost the toss and was invited to bat first. Things got off to a bad start losing Sam after only 4 balls. Boss and Oddy started the recovery and the score never really got going and when we lost Boss the score was 25 - 2. Good partnerships between Oddy and Sean Rigby took the score to over 100 when Oddy departed after a good grafting knock of 62. Face and Sean both had good knocks of 38 and 39 respectively but the shot of the day went to Harry Thomas (14*) with his extra cover drive that literally raced to the boundary. Good contributions all the way down the batting line up especially Lee Standell (23) meant our score was 198 - 9.
Ludlow's reply got off to a bad start as they lost thier opener after only 3 ball and wickets regularly fell throughout their innings and were eventually all out for 110. All Madeley's bowlers were successful with Kieren Richards, Chris Hodson, Sean Rigby all taking 2 wickets but again special mention to Harry Thomas who bowled excellently finishing with figures of 5 overs 4 maidens 2 wickets for 5 runs - well done Harry. Sean Rigby also had a great game with his fielding an absolute pleasure to watch.
Overall a good team performance enabling us to pick up the maximum 20 points
Thanks to Glen for umpiring and Shreck for scoring and Callum  for scoring on the Arab Jail - Thanks all
Wem away next week
