Ards Cricket Club 1st XI v Lisburn II on Sat 02 Jun 2012 at 1.00pm
Ards Cricket Club Lost

Match report Ards lose !

With stand in Skipper P Cox winning the toss, and deciding to bowl first, ards got off to an unbelievable start. An excellent display of short fast bowling mixed up with some really difficult deliveries, from ards opening bowling pair of R Patterson and P Devlin, who had the visitors on the back foot right from the start. The visitors were 13 -2 off 4 overs. With an excellent display in the field by ard's fielders, for once holding all their catches, ards had the opposition at 105-7, with a little bit of resistance in the middle overs from lisburn middle order, however even they couldn't hang about against the spin of J Calvin. The last 3 wickets soon fell, and ards had bowled lisburn out for 150, in 37 overs.

After the break ards opening batting pair of G Stewart and R Balfour, took to the crease and set about chasing down this below par score of 150. The 2 opening bats, got off to a good start with the team reaching 19 when the 1st wicket went down. G Stewart(18) punished some wayward bowling before miss timing one and hitting it straight at a fielder . With the exception of J Calvin(17) ards middle order had nothing to give, even he himself lost patience and tried to smack 1 out of the park but pulled out of the shot, leading to a simple catch taken at cover. Ards hopes of a dramatic cup upset now obliterated, lisburn polished off the tail endeing the ards innings 76 all out.

Some batting practice needed!
