SVCC Men's 1st XI v Leeds & Broomfield 1st XI (A) - 25.05.24

The Vine travelled to Leeds Castle for GW 3 against Leeds and Broomfield. Losing the toss the hosts decided to bat first on a good wicket.

Small dimensions helped the hosts get off to a flier. Ed Scrivens (121) and Max Aitken making use of the new ball. Tommy Richards (2-26) provided the early breakthrough but a partnership of 140 for the first wicket seemed to be pushing the balance in the hosts favour. Andrew Reid-Dick (3-48) and Luke Schlemmer (3-46) provided wickets at the end of the innings but the clean striking from George Davis took Leeds to a competitive 299-9.

Starting the second innings the Vine lost Vice Captain Ben Price early, Schlemmer (29) and Vernon (49) took the score to 78 before the introduction of Overseas Brad Hope. The tasmanian all rounder quickly got into his work, putting on a partnership of 121 with Evert Bekker (36). A couple late wickets brought Finn Kirkland to the crease with Hope with the score at 246-5, the pair began to take advantage of the boundaries scoring freely. Hope in particular hitting 8 sixes and 13 fours on his way to an impressive 140 not out. Kirkland and Hope put on 55 for the final wicket. A big chase for the Vine who host Bromley this week coming.
