Big hitting Bryan short of century knock
Published 28/04/15



ON A cold overcast day on Sunday HARPSDEN won the toss and chose to bat against MORTIMER WEST END.

Proceedings started poorly for the home side losing both openers early to the bowling by Hodson and Miles.

Andrew Bryan mixed big hitting with fine shots to fall six short of a century and push Harpsden to a good score.

Bryan was well supported by Ben Hancock and Adam Birkett at the end of the innings with Harpsden finishing on 239-6.

Mortimer West End made a good start in their reply but some tight bowling from James Brooks and Romily Hayward restricted them from scoring runs quickly.


Wickets fell at regular intervals with B Hodson playing some fine strokes to get the away team near but no one stayed with him for long enough to get Mortimer West End over the line as they eventually finished on 206-6 off their 40 overs.

With a pitch resembling mid-summer, THEALE AND TILEHURST were put into bat in a declaration game at HARPSDEN.

Proceedings started well for the visitors as Ahmed and Malik made a fine start before R Birkett got the crucial breakthrough wicket of Ahmed.

Many Theale batsmen came and went with Malik being the main man making his way to 100 in the first game of the season with some fine strokes mixed with some big hits.

W Stevens eventually got his man at the death but the damage was done as Theale ended on a highly competitive 230.

Harpsden started poorly and were 60-4 after 15 overs. W Stevens then joined Adam Birkett at the crease which got Harpsden going again with a partnership that looked like Harpsden could get close until Birkett was caught at slip.

Peter Wright pushed Harpsden’s run rate up with some fine stroke play before he went for 24. After this wicket, Harpsden were on the defensive playing for the draw which was not easy with some fine bowling from Budzar.

Harpsden finished eight down as the match ended in a draw and Harpsden on 187.
