Sun 10 June - Buckhurst

Posted on 11th June in 2007, Friendly Match Reports

Buckhurst 188-6
Shoreham 161-9

After winning the toss first time captain S. Trick decided his team would love nothing more than sweating it out in baking conditions for 40 overs in the field. Buckhurst got off to a steady start putting on a first wicket stand of 100 by J. Drown (70) and P. Lydon (38). However they were restricted with tight bowling by the improving B. Simms and the experienced D. Fletcher who went for 37 and 20 respectively from their 8 overs. It wasn’t until the introduction of R. Trick (7ovrs-21runs-1wkt) and G. Rivett (9ovrs-57runs-2wkts) that the wickets started to fall. The powerful hitting of K. Sayer (46) looked set to lead the visitors to a mammoth total until the enthusiastic D. Setterfield tore through the top order picking up 3 wickets for only 15 runs from his 6.1 overs. At the fall of Buckhurst’s 6th wicket the opposition took the decision to declare on 188-6 with 15 minutes batting time to spare.

Shoreham looked set to have a disappointing day with the bat losing the first 3 wickets for just 29 runs due to some good opening bowling from Lepard (3 for 28) and Berry (2 for 36) for Buckhurst. It wasn’t until M. Wells (37) joined opener R. Trick (43) at the crease that the run chase began, the experienced pair found runs easy to come by regularly hitting boundaries and occasionally turning threes into ones. The dismissals of R. Trick with a sharp caught and bowled by Jones (1 for 12) and M. Wells bowled trying to push the score along essentially saw Shoreham’s chances of winning slip away. It was left to a negative innings by S. Trick (10*) to claim a draw with Shoreham reaching 161-9 from 36 overs. Special thanks go to Mr. Extras who helped Shoreham to this total with a handy 49.

    Is this an Extravagant Leave or a Well Guided Edge?

    i think Marty was counting on the keeper missing the ball so he could help himself to somemore extras.

    His face is a bit obscured, but can anyone guess who the batsman is?
