Burley Cricket Club


Exbury v Burley Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 11 May 2013 at 14.00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 9 wickets

Match report On a wet, rainy, uninspiring day for cricket Burley put in an inspired performance to brush aside Exbury and begin their league campaign with a resounding 20 point win. A lively track (although it played much better than it initially looked) aided some outstanding bowling from all of the Burley attack. Backed up by solid fielding James Edworthy and Jim Burry tied down the Exbury openers making runs hard to find. There was no let up from Wayne Tucker or Craig Doick as regular wickets made life difficult for Exbury to take the game to Burley.
In the middle of the innings 23 minutes were lost to rain and when a second heavy shower came an early tea was taken to avoid losing anymore time. Dyer and Livermore provided some resistance but this was short lived and when Strong was caught by Alec Moorman off the bowling of Jim Burry the innings was completed 10 balls early, bowled out for 116.

Due to the rain break 7 overs were lost from the Burley reply and the target was set at 104 in 35 overs for the victory. Kieron Hudson and Jonny Beck set about the total in a controlled manner, Hudson edging the first ball of the innings through 1st slip!!! but the pair took the total to 46 before Beck top edged Cornwall to backward point for 18. Hudson and James Edworthy continued towards the target, keeping an eye on the run rate in case the rain came again forcing the result to become a calculation. However, despite one short shower for which they didn't come off the pair saw Burley over the target score with ease. Hudson brought up his 50 in 66 balls and ended 64 not out with Edworthy 19 not out at the other end.
A comfortable victory brought up a 20 point winning start in the league and another 'all forest' clash next Saturday on The Green against Sway.
