HURLEY 2nds lost their opening Division 3 match away at ENGLEFIELD.

The visitors were inserted in blustery conditions and made slow progress against Peter Hicks and Danny Robertson. Robertson made the breakthrough when Shoaib Kayani played a drive at a ball which drifted in to take his off stump.

Imran Arshad pulled his first delivery to mid-wicket for a boundary off Robertson. Together with Mike Walton he added 21 for the second wicket before a lofted shot to mid-on was held by Peter Hicks at the second attempt. Walton missed a full toss and was bowled via his pads, Clive Williams added a valuable 26 before edging Nawas to the keeper, and Colin Ainger chipped up a catch to mid-off.

Dave Pollitt showed some aggressive intent with 21 runs at number eight but when he holed out off Joe Van de Merwe’s first ball, Hurley finished on 142. Arshad and Pollitt with the new ball conceded only 31 runs from the first 10 overs, with Pollitt picking up the wicket of Van de Merwe.

Englefield skipper Hicks patiently guided his side to victory. Samad shared in a partnership of 47 for the second wicket before his patience ran out, edging Dave Walton to the safe hands of Kayani at backward point. A consolation wicket for Scott Taylor was the only other success for the visitors as the Hicks brothers saw their side home with 18 overs to spare.
