Petersfield Post Report

Hawkley lost the toss and batted first on a hot sunny afternoon, on a Frensham ground whose short boundaries and fast outfield promised runs galore. Ed Peel opened the batting and was quick to punish any wayward deliveries and scored rapidly, especially in the offside. Fellow opener Clive Hopkins lost his middle stump in the third over however Steve Clark provided solid support and added valuable runs. After Clark departed for 13 several batsmen visited the crease without adding to the score, however Hawkley skipper Ashley Fooks joined Peel at the crease in a solid partnership which added 45 runs and saw Peel bring up his half century. Peel added nine more before playing around a straight ball from Holly Dibbdin, the first lady cricketer Hawley have faced for several years. Liam Lloyd joined his captain in a stand of 83 runs, which ended when Fooks was caught for 51. Finally, Nick Hudson hit four boundaries in the last over as he and Lloyd added 30 off the last three overs which saw Lloyd become Hawkley's third half-centurion, setting the home side a challenging target of 258 off 35 overs.

The Hudson and Lloyd partnership with the bat continued with the ball as Frensham began their reply. Helped by astute field setting and good work in the outfield, the bowlers kept a tight control over the scoring while each nipping out a batsman. After twelve overs Frensham were 53 for two and well behind the run rate. A change of bowling brought further wickets as Sam Cunningham clean bowled two batsmen on his first two overs. Steve Clark claimed a victim at the other end as did Magan Singodia, to leave Frensham on the ropes. Sam Cunningham continued the attack bowling with pace and venom to finish a fine performance with five wickets for 37. Frensham's Shine salvaged some pride for the home side with a battling rear-guard innings of 52, before Ed Peel delivered the coup de grace to finish Frensham off for 175 all out and hand Hawkley victory by the healthy margin of 83 runs.
