Liss Cricket Club 1st XI v Ropley II on Sat 21 Jul 2012 at 2.00pm
Liss Cricket Club Won by 141 runs

Match report Liss welcomed league leaders Ropley II this week and were put into bat by the visitors. The track was still a little soft with the weeks rain but liss set about their work straight away. Richardson, playing his last game for Liss, opened with Pleace jnr and although it was hard work started to pick up runs. The run rate was a little slow with 27 runs off the first 10 overs. Both batsmen were battling and Pleace jnr started to put his foot down. A string of boundaries took liss onto 74 from 20 overs but with no wickets lost Liss started to open their shoulders. Richardson fell for 26 with the score on 84. Conditions were proving tricky and Ropley were bowling well. Kemp jnr, Murphy and Radford all chipped in with runs and backed up Pleace jnr as he passed 50. Liss past 100 and 150 was looking a good score. Pleace jnr was trapped LBW for 73 and had given Liss a real shout. Radford and Johns scrapped for the last few overs and picked up valuable runs and Liss finished the innings on 180-7.
Liss’s bowlers got to work straight away and kept the run rate down. Both Baker and Parrott were bowling well before Baker struck twice in the 13th over leaving Ropley 23-2. It was not long before the wickets started to tumble and Ropley found themselves in trouble. Baker picked up another two wickets before a bowling change brought Pleace snr into the attack. Two wickets from his first over left Ropley 31-6 and the end was near. The tail end really struggled with Pleace snr change of pace and he picked up the remaining wickets along with a run out and Ropley had slumped to 39 all out. Pleace finishing with figures of 3.3 overs 5 wickets for 5 runs. It was a great farewell game for Tim Richardson who is returning to Australia next month and will be missed.
