Youth prodigy shines with bat and ball
Published 11/08/14



A GRADUATE of HURLEY’S colts programme, Ross Brown was man-of-the-match at WHITE WALTHAM 2nds taking 5-50 and scoring an unbeaten 109 in 85 balls to propel the visitors to an impressive nine-wicket Division 2 win.

With one eye on the weather, White Waltham opted to bat first but were blown away by Brown as the home side collapsed to 75-6 despite a classy 22 from youngster Joshi.

With the opening bowlers withdrawn, White Waltham consolidated with a 49 run seventh wicket partnership between Bhachu and Jeff Booker. Vik Bhagwani broke this obdurate stand with a mixture of deliveries forcing Bhachu to drive to mid-off where last minute replacement Mike Walton took a sharp catch without the aid of his usual keeping gloves.

Brown took a difficult catch reaching above his head at mid-wicket to dismiss Brooker and Akhtar with a sharp catch at silly mid off as Waltham added 105 for the last four wickets and 35 for the 10th wicket as Jez Ellis and Mike Salmon took the home side to 180-9 from a rain reduced 47 overs.

Naeem Akhtar and Brown opened the batting and smashed the opening attack to all parts of the ground. The duo added 51 in seven overs before Akhtar attempted to hook Beard only for Parham to run round from slip to take a tricky catch. Brown was imperious driving and pulling his way to a century but survived two sharp chances to the unfortunate Brooker.


Yasir Ali continued in similar vein with a six clattering into the pub conservatory across the road.

Hurley cruised home in 23.1 overs to lift them outside the relegation positions but still not clear of danger.
