Podolski gets into the swing

HOLYPORT chose to bat on another hot Sunday for a 40 overs friendly at CHECKENDON but were unprepared for some devastating left arm swing from opener Alex Podolski who took 5-10 in six overs.

Tony Breakspear was removed from the attack with 3-4 in two overs as the visitors lost five wickets without a run on the board.

Seven of the first eight Holyport players registered ducks before a partial recovery saw them reach 58 all out.

The Checkendon batsmen experienced no such problems as opener Sunny Dehal hit 46 not out in 11.3 overs ensuring a nine-wicket win.
