2011 HCL Match Report - Ryde II
After weeks of dry weather an overnight storm left the ground soft and slow for our visitors from across the sea. Ryde were inserted and made steady progress, with Neil Moring (4-44) and Prem Kumarasamy (1-11 from 10 overs) mainly responsible for restricting them to 138-8 (Andy Gillett 32) from their 42 overs. After tea Tony Adams and Dan Hood (38) got IBM under way, but thereafter wickets fell at regular intervals. But from 99-5, and plenty of overs left to secure a victory, they were bowled put for 100 (Ben Dore 4-12, Andy Gillett 4-20).
