Ards Cricket Club 1st XI v Drumaness on Sat 06 May 2017 at 1.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost

Match report Ards won the toss and elected to field first drumaness got off to a solid start and despite a good opening spell from Sam Ingram the runs were flowing until the introduction of Arafat Khan and Shamu Khan both bowling impressive spells with Arafat unfortunate to go wicketless. Despite the run rate slowing Drumaness importantly kept wickets in hand and accelerated in the final 10 overs thanks to skipper James Cunninghams 40 not out and they finished the innings with a score of 168/7 from 30 overs. Ards were reasonably confident of chasing this total down and that confidence was justified as opening pair Shamu Khan and Paul Nihell raced to 44 after only 5 overs with Paul being especially severe on the opening bowlers. The game changed as the big opening bowler found his rhythm and removed both shamu and Paul and worse was to follow as the change bowlers for drumaness ripped the middle order of Ards out it wasn't until young Ethan Davies and the returning Andy Savage showed a bit of fight both scoring double figures and Andy scoring an impressive 21 but unfortunately the loss of the middle order with nobody making double figures proved decisive and Ards fell 47 runs short in a game most players felt was winnable
