Woodford Park defeat

HURLEY lost their unbeaten Sunday record against WOODLEY at Woodford Park.

HURLEY lost their unbeaten Sunday record against WOODLEY at Woodford Park.

Mike Walton called correctly and opted to bat first, sending in Stephen Wright and Shaan Hussain, both making their seasonal debuts.

The first couple of overs saw runs come freely but this proved to be a false dawn with Wright missing a straight delivery from Ahmed and Hussain skying a catch off Hussain.

The rest of the innings stuttered along with only Yasir Gul, Mike Walton and James Calliss reaching double figures. Gul’s stay at the crease was cut short when he pushed the ball directly to the fielder at square-leg and set off for a single and was run out. Several of the Hurley batsmen fell to mis-timed aerial shots. Calliss added an unbeaten 21 with his skipper to enable Hurley to post  135-8.

In reply Kaleem hit the first two balls of the innings over mid-wicket for six, following with a four and a single as Calliss went for 21 from his opening over. Kaleem’s show of power hitting was short lived as he sent a leading edge back to Hussain in the next over, without adding to his score.



Calliss refused to be cowed by the onslaught and was unlucky not to pick up a wicket when Scott Taylor made a valiant effort to get a hand on a skier on the mid-wicket boundary but was unable to cling on to the ball.

With runs coming at a rate of more than 10 an over Dave Walton and Hassan Gul were introduced to the attack and managed to peg back the batsmen, both picking up a wicket as they conceded only 29 runs between them in 11 overs.

Taylor replaced Walton and bowled a sharp over, beating the outside edge on four occasions without any luck. Henry Graham made good ground to take a catch off his own bowling to dismiss Raz for a duck but it only delayed the inevitable as the hosts cruised home with 17 overs to spare.
