Burley Cricket Club


Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v DOE Cavaliers on Sun 22 May 2011 at 14.30
Burley Cricket Club Won by 7 wickets

Match report After winning the toss and putting DOE into bat things started brightly when James Edworthy dismissed L Harrop in his first over. However, Burley were soon put on the back foot by G Kitchin and R Harrop who put on a partnership of 150, the pair being particularly severe on the bowling of Reynolds and Hudson. Things could have been very different if Marcus Reynolds hadn't dropped Kitchin THREE times on his way to a century. Kitchin bought his ton up with a six and sportingly retired to give his team-mates a bat. At 167-1 Burley were demoralised but a fantastic spell of bowling from Scott Ashcroft (8-3-31-3), aided by Dan Maher chipping in with three wickets dragged Burley back into the game and DOE ended on 221-8 at tea.

In reply, Kieron Hudson and Charles Moorman got Burley off to a steady start before Charles was caught for 7. James Edworthy came in at 3 and him and Kieron steadily pushed up the run-rate with a partnersip of 76 in just over 10 overs before Kieron was caught behind for a well crafted 45. As wicket-keeper Alec Moorman came to the crease Burley required 118 in 18 overs. Edworthy and Moorman put on a brilliant match-winning partnership of 100 in just 11 overs to put Burley on the brink of victory. James batted superbly and after beating his previous best of 87 he took just two balls to get to his maiden ton, hitting D Blakey for two maximums before retiring on 100. Mike Moorman came and went and so it was left to Marc Seymour to hit the winning runs, with Alec finishing unbeaten on 39 as Burley reached their target with 5.2 overs to spare.

Overall, a cracking game of cricket and most importantly, Daniel Tucker's decision to field first was vindicated!!
