Week 11 – Top Knock by Docker

1s v Cove 2

Ascot were on the road down the M3 to Cove. Cove won the toss and elected to bat first.

A good opening partnership by Jack Wilson and Archie Smith (43) put on 91 and then with Ali Ahmed (40), Cove were well placed at 160 for 2. But the bowling and fielding was good keeping the boundary count down to 12 for the whole innings and while Jack Wilson went on to a well deserved 101 not out, no one else got into double figures as Cove made 209 for 6 off 52 overs. Andy Murray was the pick of the Ascot attack with 3 for 59.

Ascot lost Deep Mohain early by Dan Corsini (41), Tharindu Denipitiyage (47) and Andy Murray (56) kept Ascot up with the rate. However, when Murray was out, Ascot were 184 for 7 and the game was in the balance. But Nick Wiggett with 37 not out saw Ascot home by 2 wickets and with only 5 balls to spare.

2s v Purley-on-Thames 2

Purley-on-Thames were the visitors to the Racecourse and Ascot won the toss and elected to bat first. James Wensley got Ascot off to a quick start with 74 and Ascot continued to score quickly with contributions from Jeremy Wing (38) and Jason Carr (27 not out) but James Docker took the batting plaudits as he made 101 not out as Ascot declared on 264 for 5 off 51 overs.

Purley were soon in trouble at 3 for 2 with Aarav Radhakrishnan getting both openers. Raj Sennapan (31) and Chris Priestley (62) saw Purley recover but when Priestley soon followed by James Leach on 131 for 7, Ascot were in the ascendancy. But Jonny Sim (47 not out) and Samuel Jugg (6 not out) batted out for the draw reaching 196 for 7 off 49 overs. Aarav was the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 22.

3s v Maidenhead & Bray 3

At Locks Ride, Maidenhead & Bray were the visitors, and they were put into bat as Ascot won the toss. Ascot bowled and fielded well taking wickets at regular intervals. Opener Duncan Brown top scored with 38 and while several batsman got into double figures no one else made more than 19. Satpal Singh Madhan then took 4 for 12 to finish off the innings as Maidenhead & Bray finished on 150 all out in 37.2 overs.

In contrast Ascot got off to a good start and scored quickly. Hassan Sohail made 37 while Satpal finished the game off with a quick 25 not out to see Ascot home by 7 wickets with 16 overs remaining.

4s v Cookham Dean 4

The 4s were on the road at Cookham Dean and elected to bat first on winning the toss. Despite Steve Bowles (24) and Basudev Pal (22), Ascot could only reach 117 all out off 35 overs with Mike Cutting taking 3 for 28 and Adhrit Pande 3 for 33.
