Early win on the road at Cheadle

By

Super bowling display then Noah calmed the nerves with another excellent knock.

Cheadle is officially the most difficult ground to drive to: they move it every year. It's always green and quiet but this year a charity festival on the school field next door meant the the game was sound tracked throughout by a whole variety of tunes from 'Baby Shark' to 'Ah-Ha'. It was certainly different! One change with Joe Maddocks in for Robin Fisher so a strong line-up to take maximum points and keep the charge going. Dan lost the toss but was bowling anyway which seemed the right thing to do on a pitch which has traditionally been kinder to the slow bowlers.
Sam Mallows and Matty Brayne again anthem settled in to their work. Sam is tricky to play on any pitch giving assistance and Brayno is dangerous when he sticks with his lines and lengths. Opener Shah was dismissed by Sam courtesy of an excellent low slip catch from Noah at first slip. Brayno induced an edge which Dan smartly grabbed at second slip. All going to plan and when Wiggy replaced Brayno whose 7 overs had cost only 18, more pace meant more problems. WIggy tore in with memories of a hat-trick from the same end in 2016. He blasted through Samuels' defence making a mess of his stumps. Then Dan replaced Sam (ten overs 1 for 20) and removed stubborn opener Pooler, caught Nash. In the same over another batter went comprehensively bowled. The conditions were perfect, humid, slight left to right cross wind and a sticky pitch, surely Cheadle wouldn't make 100. Dan called on Joe Maddocks who now bowls little away swingers apparently...which worked straight away and Wong edged to Nash who promptly stumped him: double play! The innings rather subsided after that with close fielders pressuring the batters and both bowlers controlling their line and length well. Dan finished things off taking 6 for 13 from 9 overs removing last man Whiteley LBW with the score on 101. No batting points and a stellar performance from all concerned in the field with fielders all catching well and flinging themselves about to stop everything.
Tea...and what a tea. It's amazing how you can get something so straight forward so right. No tricks or gimmicks just fresh food and plenty of it. No pasta a al coleslaw in sight! Excellent work.
So another low total and another tricky batting track. Usual mantra of 'no dramas' from the skipper. Usual collapse and 23 for 3. Dil smacked a 6 then was excellently caught. Luke and Noah failed to communicate and Luke was run out. Andy Metcalf got an unplayable ball which sat in the pitch and reared up at him and was spliced back to the bowler. Next week we'll open with Noah and Nashy to save the messing about! Once again they batted carefully but in Noah, we have a man in prime form. For one so young, he can be so dominant. He was playing a different game again. He obliterated the bowling with shots all round the ground. He went to 50 with the total on 70. A slog sweep over mid-wicket and a cover drive were his best but it was a highlights reel. His wagon wheel would be 360 degrees and with only full tosses befuddling him - the premeditated reverse sweep isn't his strength - he blasted ten fours and a 6 to take the 25 points in the 19th over. Nashy (17*) at the other end was the perfect foil. He blocked positively and drove well. His two boundaries were solid pushes to the fence through the covers. An 80 run partnership too. Excellent victory 25 - 1.

MotM - Dan Riley for 6 for 13 and Noah for his 69*
DotD - Wiggy for a number of very minor misdemeanours.
