Whitchurch II v Liss Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 30 May 2009 at 2pm
Liss Cricket Club Lost By 7 runs

Match report Liss made a great start again this week with Hall once again taking a wicket in his first over. Continued tight bowling from Hall and Baker kept the home side to 43-1 from the first 13 overs. Bringing Neat into the attack made an immediate impression picking up his first and Liss’s 2nd wicket. The home side dug in and then began to hit out at the Liss attack. A mixture of dropped catches and fielding errors along side some large blows from the batsmen moved the home side onto 109-2 at the halfway mark. A mixture of pace from Blanks and Small steadied the pace and a couple of key wickets were taken Small taking two from his good spell. Some more uncharacteristic mistakes from the Liss fielders was helping Whitchurch post a big score. A late flurry of wickets from Neat bowled the home side out for 233. Neat finished with 5 wickets.
A good start was made by Liss’s openers, knocking the ball around and a partnership of 48 was formed for the first wicket. Wyatt had found some form and began to push the score along. Wickets started to fall but Wyatt was standing strong. Good partnerships between himself and Blanks then with Johns was moving the game back into Liss’s favour. Wyatt finally fell for a fine 96 leaving Liss on 171-5 needing 68 off the last 13 overs. At this crucial point Liss lost quick wickets and were 50 runs short with one wicket remaining. The game had now swung back in Whitchurch’s favour but another good performance with the bat from Baker started to edge Liss closer and closer. Assisted by Brown, Baker hit a seasons best 35 not out but unfortunately Brown was bowled leaving Liss 8 short of there target.
