Halstead Cricket Club Lost by 5 wickets

Match report Halstead I – 200 all out – lost to Ipswich I – 201-5 – by 5 wickets

The season opener at Star Stile saw the 1st XI playing on Morton’s Meadow as the main square was still suffering the after-effects of the rain that caused a postponement of the first round of fixtures.

The hosts batted first and lost Chris Huntington (2) early on, Nicholas Johnson at point taking the catch off John Howe (2-21).

Mark Johnson (10) was Howe’s second victim as he was caught at short cover by Louis Perrin, Josh Wells (12) followed afterward, caught at mid-on by Jack Elford off Rob Southall (1-25) reducing Halstead to 48-3.

Graham Wickes (41) and Charlie Douglas-Hughes (85*) put together a sturdy fourth wicket partnership of 65, taking the score past 100 before Wickes was out caught by Joe Rusby off Jamie De Cosimo (2-32).

Chris Rayner (4) and debutant Craig Spooner (0) were both trapped LBW by Elford (4-54) as the flurry of wickets further reduced Halstead to 122-6.

Douglas-Hughes passed his half-century, whilst Sam Chapman (18) scored quickly but the latter was caught by Perrin off Elford whilst trying to exploit the shorter Morton’s Meadow boundaries.

Joe Morris (1) became De Cosimo’s second victim, Josh King (12) was run out by Alex Gooding and Ed Clark (0) stumped by Mark Burch to give Elford his fourth and close the Halstead innings on 200 all out.

With 200 always looking short of the target they would’ve liked to set, Halstead needed quick early wickets.

Rusby (29) and Southall (14) got off to a slow start for the visitors, with Morris (0-24) and Wells (1-34) bowling economically.

With the score on 44, Clark (1-26) made the breakthrough, forcing Southall to go aerial to Morris at mid-off.

Ipswich had added just nine runs when a direct hit from Douglas-Hughes accounted for Rusby. It could have been three in quick succession as Perrin (49*) survived a dropped catch whilst not yet off the mark.

Burch (38) and Perrin took the scores toward 100, but two quick wickets – Burch caught behind by Chapman off King (1-31) and Johnson (1) bowled by Wells – had things back in the balance.

Consecutive 50 run partnerships between Perrin and first Chris Norton (27) then Damien Smith (24*) would prove pivotal for the newly promoted Ipswich side.

Huntington (1-52) had Norton caught at long on – Morris hanging on well to a high catch – but the damage had been done and the visitors eased home with 4.5 overs and five wickets to spare.
