HURLEY continued their end-of-season friendly campaign with a visit to PRINCES RISBOROUGH on Saturday.
The home side won the toss and opted to bat first. Imran Arshad got good bounce and carry causing Scully to play out a maiden.
Scott Taylor followed up and with only an extra on the board, swung one in to take Scully’s leg stump. Only three more runs had been added when Shelby was trapped in front by a Taylor.
The score became 5-4 as Arshad claimed two in two balls. Imran Khan was caught behind but there was no doubt about the next wicket as Strecker lobbed his first delivery to Faisal Ahmed at mid-wicket.
Another wicket for Arshad in his next over saw the hosts hit the buffers at 10-5 as Blundell was cleaned up. Andy Bee hit Arshad for a six and two boundaries from his first four deliveries. Dave Walton replaced Arshad and struck with his second ball as Bee charged down the track only to be beaten in the flight and give Mike Walton the easiest of stumpings.
