Beddington missing a number of players opened the bowling with Ryan Cummins and Danial Lewis against the opening pair of Guy Harper and Michael Sanderson, both scored well in the early overs, with boundaries aplenty but in the last of the Power Play overs everything changed. First Lewis had Harper caught behind by Scott Dance for 27 and this was followed by Cameron was caught behind by Dance for 12.

This brought Danny Miller and Stewart Cameron together but then Cummins demolished Cameron’s stumps to bowl him without scoring. In came Sam Homes and he took the score along to 74 when he chipped a catch to 10 overs. Antony Down of Seb Chmielinski for 15. Conor Young came in and when trying to attack Kyle Moolman was stumped by Dance for 8 to leave Ashtead 86 for 5. Paul Harrison joined Miller and the pair decided to set about setting a decent score for the home side. The pair proceeded to take the score to 182 when Harrison tried hit Butler over Long on but only proceeded to find young Jack Ballard to depart for 43. Ashtead proceeded to 215 for 7 with only the loss of Miller for 65 off 120 balls. The pick of the bowlers for Beddington were Daniel Lewis who took 2 for 25 of his 10 overs and Ryan Cummins with 2 for 40 off his 10 overs.

A good start was required by Beddington with the new opening partnership of Antony Down and Jack Ballard. After a nervous start Ballard seem to settle and attack the bowling and proceeded to hit seven boundaries before playing all round a delivery from Frielander to be bowled for 30 with the score on 49. He was soon followed by Down who was LBW to Frielander for 7. Beddington were struggling as Lester and Chmielinski were dismissed cheaply to leave them 67 for 4. A partnership was needed and Cummins joined Moolman to repair the damage and they set about doing this. They took the score to 100 when Moolman departed for 21 and was followed by Butler who threw his wicket away to leave Beddington 100 for 6.  A further wicket brought Scott Dance to the wicket to join Cummins and they set about trying to chase down the target but with the score on 146 Dance was bowled by Thomas for 11 and then Cummins was stumped for 43.
