A BATTING collapse led to HURLEY falling 49 runs short against MARLOW VETS on Sunday.

A BATTING collapse led to HURLEY falling 49 runs short against MARLOW VETS on Sunday.

The visitors batted first with Dickinson and Hillier putting the Hurley opening attack of Bert Simon and Dave Walton to the sword, piling up 59 runs in the first six overs before Hillier was bowled by Walton. O’Toole hit several boundaries in a partnership of 83 with Dickinson for the third wicket.

Stand-in keeper Matt Hampton did a good job behind the stumps while Scott Taylor was the only Hurley bowler to go for less than a run a ball as the visitors declared on 250-7 in the 36th over.

In reply Hurley made a solid start with an opening stand of 75 between Shoaib Kayani and Ramesh Sistla.

Anush Choudhary, David Morgans and Matt Hampton all made good starts but failed to go on, as Hurley reached 187-5 with 14 overs remaining. None of the remaining batsmen reached double figures as McInery ripped through the innings with the hosts losing their last five wickets for just 14 runs.
