Crazies Hill crush Holyport

CRAZIES HILL cruised to victory at HOLYPORT on Sunday.

CRAZIES HILL cruised to victory at HOLYPORT on Sunday.

Having lost the toss and been asked to bat, the visitors began circumspectly in the face of accurate and hostile bowling from Ali and Pajwani. However, having seen off the opening bowlers, Swift and Noyes began to take control, dispatching the ball to the boundary with increasing regularity.

Having added 81, Noyes edged De Carvalho and was well caught by keeper Dunn for 44. This brought Reiss Simpson to the crease but did not slow down Crazies’ progress. Despite Swift’s vigil being ended on 30, a series of quick fire, but short-lived, cameos from the Montgomery family kept the scoreboard moving.

With Reiss still comfortable, a score of 230 looked possible. However, Seward was caught at mid-off and Ali bowled Dario Simpson first ball to leave Reiss still short of his half century with only one wicket remaining. In a rush of blood, Reiss tried to pull Ali and was clean bowled, leaving Holyport needing 208 for victory.

Needing to score at more than five an over, Holyport began aggressively but this plan backfired as Charlie Montgomery and Searle ripped out their top order in the space of six overs to leave the hosts 12-5. With Dario and Sam Montgomery taking a wicket each shortly after, Holyport were already staring at defeat having lost seven wickets for only 14 runs.



Opening bowler Ali came in with nothing to lose and began a counter-attack. Despite Seward bowling Chana, Ali continued his assault as Dunn resisted stubbornly. However, having made 37, Ali was caught by Noyes, leaping to take a one-handed catch at cover. With Ali out, Sam Montgomery quickly wrapped up victory when he trapped Riley leg before.
