Match Report - Under 15- 29th May 05
BAT v Lymington
New Forest Colts Cricket Association League

BAT 133 for 7 v Lymington 109 for 6

Lymington skipper Tim Noble won the toss and asked BAT to take first knock. Opening bowlers Elliott Lindsay-Wood (4 overs 1 for 25) and James Winderam ( 4 overs 3 for 26) bowled excellently especially the latter who was swinging the ball deceptively. Elliott had a few problems with his run up but was bowling with pace.

At 52 for 4 BAT were in trouble but with sensible batting they recovered against the bowling of Will Thorp ( 4 overs 0 for 29) and Stuart Beveridge (3 overs 0 for 25) and although Tim Noble ( 2 overs 2 for 15) including a tremendous catch by Dan Walters and Tom Thorp ( 1 over 1 for 5), BAT finished on133 for 7 after 18 overs.

Tim Noble (9) and Tom Thorp (16) found it difficult to score runs against the rather fast tall BAT opening bowlers. The former was out cutting again as in the previous week and Will Thorp (8) having struck 2 nice boundaries was also caught in the gully. Stuart Beveridge (1) was bowled and Tom Thorp was caught behind and at 81 for 4 in the 14th over Lymington were up with the run rate. Toby Hayes (18) hit 4 boundaries and Elliott Lindsay-Wood (9) a big 6 and with Dan Walters (12 not out) hitting 2 boundaries Lymington finished 24 runs short to a physically bigger BAT side.
