Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v Robins on Sun 28 Jul 2019 at 14:00
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 1 wicket

Match report Burley Sunday XI narrowly fell to a 1-wicket defeat in an entertaining and enjoyable game played in good spirit at The School Green against Robins. With both teams experiencing selection problems, Burley played with 9 players, while Robins went with 10. Alec Moorman was the standout batsman of the Burley innings, falling for 97 in the last over. His innings had helped Burley post a competitive 198-7 off their 35 overs, with Dan Maher finishing unbeaten on 32, and the top three of Martin, Tucker, Roberts chipping in.
In reply, James Roberts and Carl Foster bowled tight opening spells with both picking up a wicket. Mark Wheeler and Charlie Humphreys shared five wickets between them - Wheeler picking up three, and enthusiastic debutant Humphreys collecting two. Maher also picked up a wicket, and Robins were reduced to 129-8 with last pair J Pay and K Darwin at the crease. The young pair batted exceptionally, aided by a slice of good fortune - Maher bowling one and hitting the stumps, but the bails failing to dislodge. In more drama, Darwin survived a run-out appeal too tight to call, and as the pair got within single figures of their target, Darwin was put down by Maher off the bowling of Martin. Going into the last over the pair needed two to win. Martin sent down a no-ball to level the scores, before Pay hit the next ball to the boundary to steer Robins to a one-wicket victory. The pair put on 73 for the final wicket - Pay finishing on 29, and Darwin on 39.
Despite the defeat, it certainly goes down as a great game of Sunday cricket, enjoyed by all, with everybody participating.
Next up for Burley Sunday XI, is another home fixture, when Merlin are the visitors.
