2011 HCL Match Report - Trojans II

Match Report: 
Trojans II
Hursley lost by 9 runs

Sathiya Murugan (3-64) was again the most successful bowler as Trojans took advantage of shoddy fielding, and accumulated 231-9 (Neil Sutherland 69, Mark Maunsell 38). Mike Meech (11) and Dan Hood (19) were both out before 21 balls had been bowled, with the score on 32. 2 more wickets fell on 36, before the veterans Malcolm Pollard (6) and Tony Portelli (54) added 47 more. Talk was of how many batting points could be secured, but the tail wagged. Scott Weaver added 18 before Sathiya Murugan hit a quick 25. Sean Adams (32 not out) and Prem Kumarasamy (19 not out) then smacked 48 off the last 4 overs to leave IBM just a tantalising 10 runs short of victory. 222-8 (Matt Ball 3-27).
