Hurley in T20 struggle as trophy slips away
Published 02/06/14

HURLEY took part in the second annual T20 tournament at Amersham Hill against the hosts and Chenies and Latimer.

After Chenies had bowled out Amersham Hill for 54 and chased down the runs in 10 overs it was Hurley’s turn to take on the hosts.

Batting first, Hurley got off to a flying start with an opening partnership of 63 between Shoaib Kayani (26) and Jonathan Langlands (52).

Forty-two runs came from the six over power play to set up a platform for a large total.

When Kayani fell in the 10th over he was replaced by the big hitting Fayyaz who blasted 28 from 15 deliveries to keep the run rate going in the right direction, with 51 runs added in five overs for the second wicket.

The next three wickets added only 13 as two overs from Oldfield (3-4) ripped out the middle order.

With 11 runs coming off the final over, Hurley finished on an impressive 151 for 7.

In reply the Amersham Hill opening pair of Nick Collison (32) and Sam Bugden (56) got their side off to a good start with 54 runs in the power play.

Scott Taylor proved to be the most economical of the bowlers conceding only 24 runs with two boundaries from his four over spell.

Matt Hamilton chopped and changed his bowlers to try to stem the run rate without success as the opening pair posted 97 for the first wicket inside 12 overs.

Fayyaz Kayani made the breakthrough with a swinging delivery that just kissed Bugden’s off stump.

Dave Walton was introduced to try to get rid of Collison which he did with his second delivery, tempting the big hitter down the track to be easily stumped.

Langlands had Lichfield caught at gully by Matt Hampton in the next over to regain the initiative for Hurley.

This only lasted for one over as Danny Telford blasted 21 from Walton’s second over to leave Amersham Hill requiring only 16 for victory from the last five overs which they achieved for the loss of James Newbury, caught behind off Langlands with 17 deliveries to spare.

THE final game of the day saw Hurley take on defending champions Chenies and Latimer to decide the destination of the trophy.

Hurley were inserted and found life difficult against a good bowling attack.

Fifty runs were scored from the power play, however the loss of the top three batsmen, all out to catches, didn’t help the Hurley cause.

Mike Walton (12 not out) was sent in to try and stop the fall of wickets, however nobody could stay with him as the middle order came and went with alarming regularity.

With four wickets going down for 14 runs in five overs it was left to Walton and David Morgans (9 not out) to try and bat out the remaining four overs which they did for the addition of 15 runs to take the Hurley total to a disappointing 93 for 9.

A wicket in the first over for Fayyaz Kayani, ripping out the middle stump of Norwood gave Hurley some hope of pulling off an unlikely victory. However some sloppy fielding and 20 wides conceded didn’t help the cause.

Chapman (45) and Anderson (19 not out) kept the run rate well in advance of what was required and although Chapman paid the price for charging a wide delivery from Mo Basharat, Chenies eased to victory inside 13 overs to retain the trophy.
