Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v Hospital Services on Sun 14 Aug 2016 at 14:00
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 61 runs

Match report It was a disappointing day for Burley Sunday XI as a below-par Burley succumbed to a 61-run defeat at home to Hospital Services. The opposition arrived late due to heavy traffic meaning a 35 over contest was agreed instead of the usual 40.
Hospital Services made a competitive total of 206-7 from their 35 overs with a sloppy fielding performance from the home side allowing the visitors to rack up more runs than they should have done. There was no stand-out performer in the batting line up with most batters getting themselves in before losing their wicket - with 6 scores of 21 and above. Opener L Wijesinghe top-scored with 33 before being run out by a direct hit from Dan Maher at mid-on, Maher then catching out the other opening batsman the very next ball off the bowling of James Pullen. Extras 2nd top-scored with 31! Youngster Finley King was the pick of the bowlers with an impressive 2-25 off 6 overs including 2 overs at the death. King capped off a good bowling performance by also grabbing a run out. Jim Burry (2-41) also picked up a couple of late wickets.
Burley, a little short on the batting front this week, never really threatened to chase down the target. Much would depend on Kieron Hudson if Burley were going to get close, and while he didn't disappoint it was only Jim Burry (21) to show any support - James Pullen (11) being the only other batsman to reach double figures. Hudson carried his bat through the entire innings for an unbeaten 81 including 8 boundaries. A very tight spell from R Day (2-13 off 7) dented Burley's chances and the run-rate never recovered. Opposing skipper Dan Murray came on to pick up 5-33 as Burley limped to 145-9 off their 35 overs. A disappointing performance overall and Burley will be aiming to bounce back to winning ways next week when they travel to Sway.
