Thame Town Cricket Roundup – 1sts defeat Harefield thanks to centurion Russell

IST XI defeat Harefield

Callum Russell struck a magnificent century to steer Thame to a six-wicket victory at home against Harefield. After losing the toss and being forced into the field on the hottest day of the year, Thame’s prolific new ball pairing Faisal Ali and Jo Van Dyk dismantled the Harefield top order, reducing them to 40-5. Harefield fought back well as Thame wilted in the sun, eventually reaching 182 all out, Ali finishing with 4-24. The Thame reply started poorly with the loss of both openers, but Russell appeared to be batting on a different surface at times, as he moved through the gears fluently in making a fine 117 not out. He found support in Hassam Mushtaq, who finished 44 not out, as Thame got home for the loss of just four wickets. Thame, currently sitting second in the league table, travel to Amersham this weekend,

 

2NDS trip up at Sandford St Martin

Thame 2nds won the toss and elected to bat first on a glorious day at Sandford St Martin. Thame made a strong start with Richard Carr making a quick fire 36 which was supported by Harry Thomas 32 and Rafe Dickie 40. However the middle order struggled to kick on to post an intimidating total and ultimately finished with a below par score of 199. Wickets were hard to come by in the field for Thame due to some excellent hitting from Sandford St Martin’s opening batsman who blasted his way to 126 which put the game to bed and Thame ended up losing by 6 wickets. They now host East Oxford at Church Meadow this weekend.

 

 

3RDS defeat Abingdon Vale 3rds

The 3s hosted Abingdon Vale, at a temporary home venue of Stanton St John. Thame’s in-form opener, Andy Jinman (114*) led the charge and made the opposition toll on the hottest day of the year, building strong partnerships with Guy Holmes (29) and Fahad Majeed (31). Jinman carried his bat to ensure Thame reached an impressive 237. Abingdon Vale in reply showed no intention of attempting to chase down the total but Thame’s bowlers, supported by some energetic fielding, eventually broke through.  The pick of the bowlers were Luke Hayes (2-18), Ian McStay (3-27) and Majeed (2-2).  Abingdon were finally bowled out for 100 inside 37 overs. Thame 3rds play Buckingham 4s away for a top-of-the-table clash this Saturday.

 

4ths lose in agonising fashion to leaders Tiddington 3rds

Thame 4ths limited Tiddington 3rds to just 131-8 from their 45 overs at Great Haseley, with Jake MacKay top-scoring on 48, thanks to a magnificent spell of 7 for 38 from Dan Constant, his career-best figures! In reply, Thame made steady progress towards victory over the division-leaders, with top scores from Tim Dabbs (22) and Andy Johnston (20), but wickets were also falling at regular intervals. In the end they were all out for 130 in the 42nd over, just 1 run short of the Tiddington total. They entertain Dinton 3rds on Saturday
