Lions roar away with victory on low wicket
Published 09/06/14



HURLEY Lions U13s clocked up a 27-run win over spirited Kidmore End U13s.

Hurley were put into bat on a low, slow wicket at Kidmore End but openers Graham Hill and Skelton played with great judgement — brutally dispatching the bad balls to every corner whilst watching the good balls carefully on to a straight bat.

Hill retired on 33 from 23 balls, and with Graham and Skelton out for nine apiece, it was down to Calliss and Patrick to pick up the baton.

At 65-2 off nine overs things were going swimmingly until Kidmore took the pace off the ball.

The two Hurley lefties were frustrated by the slow pace and leg stump line, as Kidmore reduced the scoring to 12 off four overs.


It was not to last though as Calliss broke the chains in the 14th over with a six over midwicket and Patrick followed with another maximum over the cover boundary.

The partnership of 42 was finally broken when Calliss was dismissed for a busy 25. But out to the wicket strode Jude Green, fresh shiny new bat in hand, eager to join the party and pushed Hurley on with some lovely timing.

With Patrick falling for 24 to the cruellest run out whilst at the non-strikers end and Green only succumbing to a last ball kamikaze run Hurley finished on 130-5.

The Hurley opening attack of Hill and Bagri limited Kidmore to only 15 from the first four overs.

The fly in the ointment was the diminutive Ben Wilson who began to build an innings of some class and went on to retire at 30.

Peplow bowled as straight as a die and got just reward when Graham snaffled a tough one from the dangerous Simmonds at mid off.

The screw was then turned more by Patrick, who bowled three tight overs finishing with an excellent 2 for 11.

Cooper, and Samant in particular, continued the high standard, with Hill taking a great diving catch to remove the sticky Sedgewick.

Kidmore’s innings ended on 103 from 19 overs - a great game of cricket with marvellous play by both sides.
