Shiv Shows Big Blue
Record Breaking Total Secures Victory Aganist IBM
Ed won the toss at Redbridge Lane deciding to bat 1st on a slow track and
outfield, where a total around 175 would have been difficult to chase down
for the opposition.
Shiv and Dave Surridge opened the innings and were soon into their stride
,scoring at 6 an over before Dave was unlucky to be run out off a Shiv
straight drive touching the bowlers fingers via the stumps, he made 41. Shiv
continued his rout of the Hursley attack making a magnificent 138 before
being run out. Abi Jagadeesh chipped in with 46 n.o towards the end of the
innings, finally totalling a huge 276 -5 off 45 overs at tea.
It began to rain during the interval,but not enough to stop the Travellers
bowling attack and fielders with a wet ball making Hursley struggle for
runs, and 5 different bowlers, Irfan, Abi, Bunny, Matty and Shiv got 2 apiece,
as Hursley totalled 132 all out. A fine win.
Man of the match – Shiv.
Well done all. Whiteparish away next week.
