Ards Cricket Club 1st XI v Victoria on Sat 14 Jul 2012 at 12.00
Ards Cricket Club Won 110 runs

Match report Ards got their season back on track this weekend, with a great performance.

Ards back to winning ways, Victoria win toss and decide to put ards in to bat. Ards get off to the worst possible start, with 2 wickets down inside the first 4 overs and hardly any runs scored. Out to the crease wanders Ards vice captain Paul Cox, who proceeds to play the innings of his life to date, (110). Cox dispatched some very poor bowling all over the park, and some good bowling as well but phased he was not. Hitting a century was a match winning knock with 16 4`s and 1 6. assisted by the big hitting of K Singh(28) Paul Cox got ards to a very good total of 192, he eventually fell at 110 due to tiredness more than anything ( no wonder).

After lunch Ards took to the field in good spirits. Ards opening bowling partnership produced a very fine result, with Rodgers taking out the first 3 wickets with some pretty accurate bowling, backed up brilliantly by Peter Devlin with some very fine fast stuff. ARds had the visitors struggling right from the off 29 for 3 after6 overs. ARds skipper had to retire from play (bloody work). Devlin then ripped through the middle order of opposition finishing with figures of 3-35-10. So with victoria struggling badly ards went for the kill, bringing on J calvin`s devilish spin cleaned up the tail with a very good over taking 2 wickets with no runs scored off 4 balls.

Cox 110
Rodgers 3-16-5
Devlin 3-35-10
