Match Report - Second XI - 19 Aug 06
Hampshire Cricket League - County 1

Lymington 116 all out - Cadnam 117 for 4

Lymington Humbled

A very poor performance left Lymington looking anxiously over their shoulder going into the last round of matches this season. Having won the toss and electing to bat, Lymington looked well placed at 85 for 2 on a difficult pitch with Matt Bowdler 40, leading the charge. However, a disastrous collapse embarrassed the middle order, and effectively ended the game as a contest. Lymington lost three wickets in an over, and with the last seven batsmen managing only 8 runs between them, the innings ended at 116 all out inside 27 overs. S Pollock finishing on 28 for 7.

Lymington worked hard in the field to try to pressurise the Cadnam batsmen, and force the play. However, despite losing a couple of early wickets, a few lusty blows brought Cadnam within touching distance of victory. Lymington eventually succumbing to a six wicket defeat. Recent poor performances against relegation threatened sides have dragged Lymington into a desperate fight for survival. The nature of this defeat has only strengthened determination to get a much needed victory against Flamingo next week at the Sports Ground, in order to ensure survival in County 1.
