Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v Merlin on Sun 01 May 2016 at 14:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 74 runs

Match report Burley Sunday XI got off to a winning start in fine style in the season opener at home to Merlin. Skipper Daniel Tucker won the toss and elected to bat - prolific opening batsman Kieron Hudson (101* retired) leading the way with the first century of the new season including 18 boundaries and one six. Alex Martin chipped in with 34 as Burley posted 204-4 off their 35 over innings.
After tea Burley entered the field layered up in jumpers - it was chilly to say the least! Burley didn't have to wait long for their first wicket - Jonny Blundell striking in the first over. Another Blundell wicket followed by the impressive debutant Carl Foster picking up his first scalp left Merlin reeling at 14-3. A 4th wicket partnership of 51 held up Burley but after Jim Burry made the breakthrough a further four wickets fell - including one from left-armer Russ Asher - also on debut - and two from the evergreen spin-king Marcus Reynolds. Merlin's innings petered out the 35 overs with Burley restricting them to just 130 for the loss of 8 wickets to earn a very comfortable 74 run victory.
A good start for Burley with Hudson in the runs, Blundell in the wickets and encouraging starts from the two bowlers on debut. Next up for Burley is another home game with BSSA the visitors. Fingers crossed that the temperature is more like cricketing weather!
