2011 HCL Match Report - Nomansland

Match Report: 
Hursley win by 4 wickets

A first at this unique ground with its own set of 'local rules'. After being put in on a slowish pitch with an outfield that tested the bravery of the IBM fielders, Matt Sharman (41) and Richard White (101) put on 101 for the first wicket, and then White and Ian Loveless (68) added a further 105 for the second wicket, before Richard Saville (3-42) pegged them back to 251-5 at tea. As befits a team propping up the League table, the Nomansland attack was less than formidable, but IBM were reduced to 131-4 before, first, Tony Adams (49 not out) and Etienne Rademaker (53) added 71, and then Adams and Sathiya Murugan (25 not out) finished it off with a further, unbroken, stand of 51. 253-6 (Richard White 2-53).
