Portsmouth II v Liss

Liss started their County 1 challenge with a superb 187-run victory against Portsmouth II.

They lost the toss and were put into bat. Openers Richard Pleace Jnr and Chris Martin got off to a good start, averaging five an over. Martin was the first ADVERTISEMENTto fall, being bowled by Perrin for 20.

Tarron Remesh joined Pleace but was soon back in the pavilion after striding down the wicket only to be given out lbw for 1. Giles Cover and Pleace set about the Portsmouth attack with frequent boundaries.

Cover fell in the 32nd over after a fine knock of 59 with the score on 156. Harry Munt joined Pleace and no let up was given to the Portsmouth bowlers with Munt showing great promise for the coming season.

Pleace continued to show his ability with the bat and reached an excellent 81 before being caught in the 42nd over with the score on 220.

Munt went on to reach a very respectable 69 before being caught. Liss lost a couple of cheap wickets but Anthony Prior pushed the score to 281 after knocking a quick 19 not out.

Liss took the field and couldn’t have wished for a better start, with opening bowlers Chaz Janczur and Lawrence Baker taking four wickets in the first six overs, Janczur taking three and Baker one after a fine catch from Luke Lee.

The pair continued to bowl exceptionally well with Baker ending his spell with outstanding figures of 5-32 from nine overs and Janczur with very tight figures of 3-18 from eight overs.

At this point Portsmouth had reached a measly 50-8. Change bowlers Cover and Remesh continued to bowl tightly with Cover picking up a wicket in his second over, having Phipps trapped lbw for seven.

With the game stagnant, Richard Pleace Snr came on and finished the Portsmouth innings with the total only reaching 94.

A great start to County 1 for Liss who entertain Portsmouth and Southsea this week.
