2011 HCL Match Report - Burley

Match Report: 
Hursley lost by 1 wicket

Tony Adams (22) led an early charge, and by the end of the third over IBM were 29-2. No-one really 'got in' as the Burley bowlers were generous with the Extras (33). Mike Meech (26) promised more, and Prem Kumarasamy (20) impressed with a few lusty blows late on, but it took Malc Pollard, with his red-inker number 180 20, to almost see out the 42 overs, as IBM closed on 167 all out (Jim Burry 3-36). After a nice tea, Neil Moring and Prem Kumarasamy (10-3-13-3) reduced Burley to 41-4, and Neil was 'rested' after 16 overs. Wickets continued to fall, and by over 26 they were 67-8. Then Ben Crowley (60) and Mick Callaghan (32 not out) added 93 for the ninth wicket. They still wanted 26 from the last 2 overs, and they scrambled the run to win off the last ball.
