Tues Night March continues

Langford's rise up the table on a Tuesday night continued this week against a battered Boscombe Down, with Langford running riot and totalling 187-3.

Langford were inserted and Gary Smith Alec Lloyd started positively, Smith in fact too positive and timed one too well straight to deep midwicket for 4. Chris Mundy fresh from his 102* was next in and he and Lloyd superbly tore the Boscombe Down attack apart, with drives, pulls and cuts, Mundy duly retired on 51* with 87 on the board after just 9 overs. Ford joined Lloyd and he immediately looked to keep the scoring flowing, hitting 15 off his first over faced, he and Lloyd continued to pile on the runs smashing the bad balls and running quick singles before Ford, looking to heave one out of the ground was bowled for a well made 41, Lloyd soon retired even though the scorer was unsure when he should have retired for a brilliant 50* and then Dennis departed for a quick 6 before Luke Emm and Pete Smith finished off the innings with Langford compliling 187-3

Boscombe's reply didn't start too well with Luke Stephens taking the wicket of Hook in the 3rd over, but then Kelly decided to have a bit of fun with the bowling, smashing 4's all over the place and taken a liken to one particular De Pass over hitting 4 consecutive 4's. He retired for a brutal 50* with Gibson digging in at the other end. Hamblin and Smith were the new bowlers, Smith bowled with control and economy and unlucky not to take a wicket, but Hamblin fresh from his hat trick against Fovant mixed his pace and apparently the Boscombe batsman only wanted to heave him, resulting on him clean bowling 4 of them on way to his 4-14. Chris Mundy and Liam (death bowler) Harvey were brought on for the last 5 overs with Boscombe struggling on 92, Mundy took 2 quick wickets with Alec Lloyd poaching the dangerous Boardman with a flying catch at gully (which the whole ground/teams appaulded) and then the overs and innings had run out with Gibson there for 17 overs scoring 18* and Mundy finishing for 2-3 and the score at 111-7. 

A great effort from Langford and the mood is now high in camp after 3 wins in a row, long may it continue, next up Amesbury away.
