AN unbeaten century by Paul Davis provided the backbone of the FIDDLERS innings as they cruised to victory against HURLEY at Shepherds Lane on Sunday.
Having won the toss and opting to bat first, the Hurley innings got off to a slow start against an accurate pace attack of Luke Beard and Govinder Bhacsu.
The score had trickled along to 16 in the seventh over when Alan Morgans was beaten for pace by a full length delivery from Beard which knocked the middle stump out of the ground.
Pat Hinnell and Parvinder Hunjan saw off the opening attack and took the score to 58 after 18 overs before Simon Jessup removed Hinnell.
Naeem Akhtar continued his good form with a brisk half-century, including a switch hit for six. Another attempted switch hit proved to be his downfall as he top edged David Woodworth to Davies.
