Lewdown Cricket Club 1st XI v Ashburton on Sat 22 May 2010 at 14.00
Lewdown Cricket Club Won by 91 runs

Match report Hot sunny weather greeted newly promoted Ashburton to the Recreation Field in a top versus 3rd match. Lewdown, for the first time this season, lost the toss and were asked to bat first on what looked a good wicket. Ashburton's opening bowler M West soon had Lewdown in trouble with his big away swingers, the top five batsmen all departed with the score at just 79 with only Jack Skuse(23) showing much resistence, enter SA player, Rob Mutch, and veteran Carl Weeks, these two decided attack was the best form of defence and put on 85 in just 12 overs for the 6th wicket, the partnership only ending when Weeks(44) was unluckily run out when backing up, the ball deflecting off the bowler onto the stumps after a thumping drive from Mutch, who also went in the same over for a big hitting 61, another 20 runs were mustered by the lower order, a below par 190 all out was reached with still 5 overs remaining.
Lewdown knew they had to be at their best to defend the total set and needed early wickets to put the pressure on the remaining Ashburton batsmen. Phil Yeo got straight into his stride and picked up two wickets in his first two overs, at 2 for 2 Ashburton never recovered and with the dangerous looking Pascoe being well run out by a fine pick up and throw from Ben Williams Ashburto were in big trouble at 49-5. Rob Mutch, who bowled with pace, aggression and accuracy, came back on for his second spell and soon removed any resistence the batsmen had left, taking 3 wickets in 13 balls and finishing with fine figures of 13.1-7-21-4, Phil Yeo also added another wicket to his tally, taking 3-38, Mark Jordan claiming the other wicket. Ashburton were all out for just 99 and soundly beaten by what was probably Lewdown's best bowling and fielding display. Lewdown gained 19 pts and remain top of Devon 'D' by 5 points.
