Burley Cricket Club U15 v Poole Town Piranhas on Tue 17 Jul 2018 at 18:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 2 wickets

Match report Burley edged out Poole Town Piranhas to record a memorable fourth win in six East Dorset League fixtures.
After winning the toss, Burley sent the Dorset side into bat. Jack Hughes made the breakthrough with an early wicket, then held a catch off the bowling of Scott Menary (1-12) to send a second Poole batter back to the pavilion.
A direct hit from Menary produced a run out and the visitors were rocking. With Danny de Wet (2-14) posting his best bowling performance to date, Burley were in the ascendance.
In a see-saw game, the Dorset side then put on 41 overs in the final two overs with Matty Williams unbeaten on 19. Wicketkeeper Aaron Piper gained Burley an extra batting point by stumping Jack Midgley (23) in the final ball of Poole’s innings, but 153 to win was a tall order.
Tom Hoole (13) got the home response going only to be bowled by Midgley, who also accounted for Burley’s other opener Sam Jourdain. Sam Howson (13) thumped a boundary off his first ball and looked well-placed for a big score but was caught out of his crease. Wickets kept tumbling until Menary (25) stemmed the middle order collapse with some carefully placed shots before being adjudged lbw.
The run rate began creeping up but the hosts’ youngest player Lawrence Taylor (28no) produced some big hits to keep Burley in the game. When Piper went for a duck, Burley’s last man Jonny Wakefield had an over to secure a win. Wakefield immediately cracked two boundaries through the Poole cordon then ran a quick two with Taylor to take Burley home.
