Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v Coombe Bissett on Sun 22 Jul 2018 at 14:00
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 4 runs

Match report A brilliant century from Alec Moorman was in vain as Burley Sunday XI succumbed to a 4 run defeat at home to Coombe Bissett. The visitors won the toss and elected to bat and after a quick wicket each for James Roberts and James Bockett, contributions from the middle order saw Coombe Bissett muster up 210-7 from their 40 overs. Zimbabwean, Brad Rouse, has top-scored for Coombe with 77 - C Johnson (42), D Webber (37) and M Mould (26*) also playing well. James Roberts was the best of the Burley attack with 4-24 from his 7 overs.
In reply, Burley lost Kieron Hudson early, and fellow opener Mark Wetherall (28) was bowled in the 8th over after a promising start. Daniel Tucker stayed with Moorman for a while, before Tucker was bowled and Bockett joined Moorman out in the middle. The pair were going along nicely, with the runs flowing off both bats, before Bockett attempted a suicidal run and was out to a direct hit. Bockett had played well for his highest score of 39 and after putting on 77 with Moorman for the 4th wicket Burley were on 157-4 after 30, requiring 54 off 10. John Farmer and James Roberts came and went cheaply. The scenario came down to 13 off 2 overs. A good over from Rouse with just 5 from it meant Burley needed 7 off the final over to be bowled by the economical Johnson. Moorman, having brought up his century in the penultimate over was caught in the deep off the 3rd ball to fall for 104. Needing 5 off 3 balls, Dan Maher was unable to find the boundary, being caught on the boundary off the final ball as Burley couldn't quite get over the line. Johnson being the bowling star with 4-22 off 7 overs at the end of the innings.
A good game of cricket nonetheless, which could have gone either way, with just 4 runs separating the two sides.
