MILDENHALL CRICKET CLUB 1st XI - Sat v Maldon on Sat 25 Apr 2015 at 1.00p.m
MILDENHALL CRICKET CLUB Won Mildenhall 1st X1 won by 10 wickets

Match report Maldon took their longest league journey when they visited Mildenhall to play Mildenhall 1st X1. Having conceded 375 runs last week against Sudbury, the visitors were in no mood to repeat this experience and quickly elected to bat first after winning the toss. However on Saturday their batting proved to be as fragile as there bowling. Tom Allen struck the first blow for Mildenhall when he caught and bowled Chris Harris for 11. And two runs later Mildehalls other opening bowler Jonathon Steel induced a drive by Jimmy Ainsclough (1) that went straight into the hands of Luke Youngs standing in the gully. Steel immediately struck again when Freddie Clark was bowled first ball. Maldons Robb Macmillan and Matt Coppen attempted to hit their way out of trouble, but Mildenhalls captain Ben Shepperson made a double switch of bowlers and the change in pace saw Coppen (3) bowled by Mirza Baig . Four balls later Baig had Bawden (0) caught behind by Karl Holmes. Jack Loveday joined in at the other end and bagged the prize wicket of Macmillan (24) as he gave Youngs his second catch in the gully. Maldon reeled at 42 for 6. Martyn Coker bravely hit out in an attempt to put runs on the board. His team mates however had no answer to Baig’s top spin. Gary Bannister was bowled by Baig for 1 and Baig picked up his fourth wicket when he bowled Toby Pugh (8). Jack Riley had no idea where the ball had gone as he attempted to play Steel only to see Youngs snaffle his third catch of the innings. A last wicket partnership of 14 was broken when Coker attempted one to many drive and was well caught in the slips by Adam Trett. The visitors had been dismissed for 74 (surprisingly 50 of their runs had come in boundaries). For Mildenhall Baig took 4 for 18 and Steel 4 for 29.
Mildenhall completed a crushing defeat on their opponents. Joe Reed smashed his way to an unbeaten 62 as he and Luke Youngs (16*) knocked off the runs in the 12th over. The game had taken just over two and a half hours to complete with Mildenhall taking 20 points and Maldon were pointless.
