Bucks v Lincs 3-day match at Chesham

On Sunday 6th August Bucks have a very attractive National Counties 3-day match at Chesham Cricket Club starting at 11am.

Chesham Cricket Club has undergone several improvements in recent years & is an excellent venue for watching cricket. Food, drink & ice cream are all available. The match continues on Monday 7th & Tuesday 8th. Well worth a visit!


  • It’s Saturday evening & despite the rain the pitch for tomorrow’s Bucks v Lincs game is in very good condition under the covers with a prompt start expected at 11am.

  • Bucks won the toss and put Lincs in, who are 43-2 off 10.3 overs.

    After a rain interruption, lunch will be taken at 1:10, play to resume at 1:40. Play can continue until 7:30 today.

  • Lincs 92-5 off 34 overs, Cam Parsons with four wickets. Off shortly to see Dino Baptiste at the Fishery Wharf Cafe in Hemel, back at Chesham tomorrow.

  • At close, Bucks are 139-2 from 35 overs, Woodland 50 n.o., Kervezee 60 n.o.

    Earlier Lincs were bowled out for148 from 52.1 overs, Parsons 4-25 from 16 overs. Ed Bragg took two wickets, this after he dislocated his finger fielding the ball from his bowling. That was in his first over and his bowling hand. He went off and got his finger popped in at a medical centre, came back on after lunch and took those wickets. Remarkable.

    Play starts at 10:30 tomorrow.


    (BTW, Dino Baptiste was really good Whether or not you like boogie-woogie, he is a great entertainer and got the whole audience joining in. Well worth seeing.)

  • At lunch Bucks are 308-5 off 74 overs, pushing along very well. Alexei Kervezee is 141 n.o. off 161 balls, Ed Bragg is 17 n.o., A J Woodland made 56, Ross Richardson 44.

  • Bucks all out for 396 off 89.4 overs, a lead of 248.

  • Bragg scored 40. Joe Pocklington was the pick of the Lincs bowlers with 5-99 off 30, Josh Knapton took 4-86 off 13.4.

  • Tea, Lincs are 62-2 off 26 overs, 186 runs behind. Parsons and Bragg with the wickets.

    A good crowd here now, more than yesterday. Play continues until 7:30.

  • Close, Lincs 145-4 from 78 overs, 103 runs behind.

    Stubborn resistance, including a 92 third wicket partnership. There is a distinct possibility of rain at various times tomorrow, so this match is still in the balance. Play starts at 10:53 tomorrow.

  • After two overs this morning, play has stopped for rain. Forecast not looking good.

  • Play has been abandoned for the day, match drawn. Bucks take four points for the draw, and four points batting and bowling points each, total 12 instead of 24 for the hoped for win.

  • Staffs managed to squeeze a late win today against Norfolk, in spite of no play on day one. They are now eight points behind Bucks, who may need to win at Suffolk in their last match on 21-23 August, to become champions.
