Burley Cricket Club 2nd XI v Hythe & Dibden III on Sat 25 May 2019 at 13:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 124 runs

Match report Burley 2nd XI made it two wins out of two games completed with another impressive victory, earning themselves maximum points. Hythe & Dibden skipper O'Conner elected to bowl first. His decision looked to be a good one as Burley were restricted to 50-2 at drinks, having lost Charlie Clamp and Ray Gunn. However, a 147-run partnership between Alex Martin and Dan Maher - filled with hard-hitting, and good running between the wickets turned the game in Burley's favour. Maher was stumped for a well-made 55. James Roberts came and went, as Burley went beyond the 200-mark to achieve maximum batting points, along with Martin going past three-figures. Jonny Blundell joined Martin with a couple of overs to go. Martin hit 5 boundaries in the penultimate over to finish unbeaten on 127, and Burley finished on 240-4, with a huge 190 runs coming in the last 20 overs.
After tea, an exceptional opening burst from Charlie Clamp (7-4-14-3), and Dan Mepham (8-2-18-2) left Hythe & Dibden reeling on 33-5. Blundell picked up three wickets too, and although a brief counter-attack from numbers 9 and 10 delayed the inevitable outcome, Scott Menary accounted for both wickets. Firstly, D Hockley, whom top-scored at no.10 with 28 was stumped by Gunn, before O Rane holed out to Martin in the deep to see Burley finish the game in the 29th over, and collect full bonus points.
