Coombe Bissett v Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI on Sun 17 Jul 2016 at 14:00
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 5 wickets

Match report Burley Sunday XI's hit and miss start to the season continued with a 5 wicket defeat at the lovely away ground of Coombe Bissett. Sunny skies welcomed Burley to Coombe Bissett following the pre-match meal at the local pub. Tucker called correctly - and after much hesitation decided that his team would bat first. A risky decision given that Burley had a severe shortage of bowlers and so an above-par score would be needed to give a depleted bowling attack the chance to defend. Burley were in trouble at 60-3 off 16 overs - key batsmen Jake Markham and Alec Moorman back in the pavilion, along with Charlie Moorman, all having managed only single figure scores. Kieron Hudson was going along nicely at the other end but spinner Matt Newman had pegged Burley back with a brilliant opening spell of 8-4-16-3. (Extraordinarily he had only gone for 2 runs off his first 6 overs!). Stuart Pateman, playing his first game of the season for Burley, then joined Hudson at the crease in a well-crafted partnership of 95 in just under 20 overs. The partnership came to an end in the 36th over when Pateman was stumped for an impressive 52. Hudson fell in the next over for 75 when he skied up to long-on. With Burley looking to be short of runs a cluster of wickets fell in the final few overs, P Hodgkinson the beneficiary with 3-18, as Burley scrambled up to 179-8 off their 40 overs. It was a competitive total but one that looked short given the lack of bowling options in Burley's ranks with several regular bowlers missing.
Jake Markham and Jim Burry started well with the ball - Markham making the breakthrough in the 5th over. However, it hadn't all gone Burley's way as they lost Dan Maher to injury in the early overs - therefore leaving Burley another bowler down. Coombe were going steadily at 40-1 off 10 but a wicket for Matt Fletcher, followed quickly by 2 more wickets from the impressive Markham left Coombe in trouble at 41-4. They began the recovery but a timely wicket from Stuart Pateman left Coombe on 75-5 off 18 overs. Inevitably, with Markham having bowled out (8-2-26-3), Burley were running out of bowlers and couldn't put Dave Webber and Will Hewlett under any pressure as the ball dissapeared to the boundary on a regular basis with Webber quick to punish any bad ball. The pair eased Coombe Bissett over the line with 12.3 overs to go in a match-winning partnership of 107* in just 10.2 overs. Webber finished unbeaten on 77 with Hewlett supporting well on 39*, with not even Alec Moorman able to confuse them with a debut over of right-arm bowling!
Overall, a good game but a disappointing result for Burley, who had they have had just one of their regular bowlers to call upon then they would probably have had enough firepower to defend their total. With 3 wins and 3 defeats Burley return to The School Green this Sunday to host Lobsters CC.
