Depleted Hurley sides fail to stop the rot

HURLEY registered their fourth successive Division 2 defeat at HOLYPORT on Saturday.

A late drop out reduced Hurley to pressing their umpire, Brian Griffin, into the field as the visitors asked Holyport to bat.

Naeem Akhtar produced another impressive spell removing C Morgan. Akhtar took the first three wickets enticing skipper Sennett to edge to keeper Day before taking a caught and bowled to send Miller back and Holyport on a precarious 41-3.

Baillie and Fowler added runs to the Holyport innings. Vikram Bhagwani replaced Langlands and his mystery spin captured Fowler shouldering and losing his off stump and next ball uprooting Varney.

Mathias and Morgan added 41 for the ninth wicket in seven overs. Akhtar belatedly returned to wrap up the innings at 180 inside 42 overs.
