2011 HCL Match Report - Bishops Waltham II

Match Report: 
Bishops Waltham II
Hursley lost by 19 runs

Sadly, IBM could only find 10 players for a game that they had to win to stand any chance of staving off relegation for the second year running. High-riding Bishops Waltham didn't find it easy-going, however, and at the half-way stage were 68-3. 17 wides, and a helping of 'buffet' bowling, allowed them to recover to 200-7 (Ben Simpson 46, Sathiya Murugan 2-31). Whilst Sathiya Murugan, promoted to number 3 was in, and at 123-3 in the 33rd over, an unlikely win was possible, but it was not to be. 181-7 (Sathiya Murugan 90, Kevin Bowen 2-26).
