Weekend Match Report – 3rd XI

Hampton Hill’s 3rd XI travelled to Wallington on Saturday to start this season’s league campaign. Both teams had struggled with availability during the week, the home side only fielding nine players against the 10 of Hampton Hill.

Wallington skipper Adam Lawrence won the toss and elected to bat first. Ryan McCartney took the new ball for the Hill, showing great control and extracting bounce and movement from a responsive pitch. He got his reward in his 4th over, taking the wickets of opener Nash and the dangerous Calum Duncan. Ryan’s figures , 2-4 from 6 overs, were all the more remarkable, in that only one of those runs came from the bat.

Off-spinner Joe Ayley replaced Jerry Fallows, taking 3-29 from 8 overs with some sharp turn and great flight. Only Brown (34) and Biggs (12) offered any resistance, both falling to Ayley. Chris Page (3-5) defied a badly bruised ankle to bowl an immaculate line and length, which was much too good for the Wallington tail. Another fine performance from wicketkeeper James Burns, claiming a stumping, two catches and an assist when he parried an edge to Fernando at gulley.

Despite a hostile spell from Lawrence, Hill’s target of 67 was reached in the 18th over with the loss of just one wicket. Nally Fernando was again unbeaten on 36 and was ably assisted in a fifty-run partnership by Vignesh Ayyathurai (21 not out), the latter playing some stylish, wristy shots, including the winning boundary.
