HADLEIGH CRICKET CLUB, SUFFOLK Saturday 1st X1 v Elmstead Grasshoppers on Sat 22 Aug 2015 at 1 pm
HADLEIGH CRICKET CLUB, SUFFOLK Won by 2 wickets

Match report Hadleigh entertained bottom placed Elmstead Grasshoppers but having lost the away fixture were expecting a stiff test.

The visitors elected to bat first , opening bowlers Kyle Tanner and Dominic Manthorpe soon found their range and ripped through the top order , at 37 for 5 the Elmstead innings was in complete tatters.

Nizami and Athukorala rebuilt and batted well putting on a useful partnership of 60 before Ben Parker removed Nizami. Kyle and Dominic came back on to bowl and quickly brought the innings to a close with Tanner cleaning up the tail , picking up another five wicket haul and leaving what looked like a very below par 139 to win.

Hadleigh lost Ben Parker early but Dain Moreton and Dominic Manthorpe steadied the ship and put on a very quick 55 run partnershIp before Dominic was stumped but at 61 for 2 it looked a fairly simple run chase, Nizami and Zaigham however made every effort to make the run chase as hard as possible and a combination of good bowling, poor shot selection and a super diving catch reduced Hadleigh to 118 for 8. The visitors were clearly on top at this stage and the win Hadleigh badly needed to push further out of relegation woes looked a long way off.

Josh Davey showed good patience and determination in grinding out what could, come the end of the season be a very valuable 19 runs , Sam Handley carried his bat for 19 which enabled Hadleigh to get over the winning line with two wickets in hand.

Other results went in our favour with both Halstead and Frinton losing putting both those sides below us joining Maldon and Elmstead in the bottom four in a season where the bottom three could be relegated depending on the relegation situation from the EAPL. Bury picked up a good win to pull them out of danger but Woolpit continue to drop like a stone in the EAPL
