Andover II v Liss Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 04 Jul 2009 at 1pm
Liss Cricket Club Won By 4 Wickets

Match report 1st XI Ease Past Andover To Make It 9 from 9

Liss traveled to Andover on Saturday with there embarrassing defeat from last season still fresh in the memory. Liss lost the toss and Andover chose to bat on what looked an excellent batting track.

Liss got off to the best possible start with Baul finding an excellent rhythm removing both openers early, with Janczur uncharacteristically wayward at the other end Baul continued to limit any scoring opportunities forcing Andover to take risks off Janczur which resulted in the loss of a further two wickets. Baul then picked up another to finish with superb fugures of 10 overs 3-17 leaving the opposition reeling on 49-5. Roberts and Clarke then came together and consolidated pushing the score along to 100 before some excellent accurate bowling and tight fielding led to another collapse within the Andover lower order. Once Clarke had been removed for a quickfire 38 they soon folded. Pleace Snr and Murphy created pressure from both ends resulting with excellent figures for both and removing Andover for a below par 116.

Martin and Sherborne opened against some accurate bowling and both went in quick succession. Munt came in a looked at ease at the crease before being on the wrong side of a tight stumping decision. This brought Pleace Jnr and Cover together to consolidate. The pair batted very patiently against some very accurate slow bowling taking advantage of the overs to pick off the bad deliveries. Cover fell for a disciplined 9 as Pleace Jnr started attacking both spinners with a powerful display of hitting. Baul then came in and hit a brisk 24 from 22 balls to help quickly push Liss towards the finish line. Both Baul and Pleace Jnr fell before the total was reached for 24 and 41 respectively. James and Hall then hit the winning runs to make it 9 wins from 9 to cap another performance where the team collectively never hit top gear.
