Match Report - Southern Electric Cup - 26th May 05
Calmore v Lymington

Lymington CC 111 all out - Calmore Sports CC 114 for 4 (20/20 match )

Lymington batted first and with last Mondays New Forest KO hero Bryn Darbyshire unavailable the openers were Aussie Peter Smith (38) and Martin Hunt (2). They were parted early with the latter getting another snick to the keeper, this brought in skipper Adie Hunt (29) and they took the score to 77 in the 11 th over when the Aussie was caught off the first ball of Mark Boston's first over. This brought about a collapse of catastrophic proportions with first Adie Hunt caught behind then the next 7 wickets fell for the addition of 10 runs. Mark Burrett (6) and the ever improving young Lloyd Scott (7) were the only batsmen to score runs with 3 batsmen stumped and 2 run out. Boston finished with figures of 4.5 overs 1 maiden 5 wickets for 9 runs and Lymington were all out for 111 in the 19th over thanks also to 21 wides.

Looking to redeem themselves in the field the opening attack of Peter Smith (5 overs 1 for 24) and Lloyd Scott ( 3 overs 1 for 9) were soon amongst the wickets along with a run out. At 20 for 3 in the fifth over Calmore were tottering but Tom Pegler (49 not out) and Simon Ennew (32) put on 83 and with the Lymington bowlers unable to grab anymore wickets also bowling 11 wides, Calmore won the match in the last over with 4 balls to spare
