Match Report - Third XI - 16 May 09
Hampshire Cricket League - South West 3

Lymington 3rds 176 for 7 v Verwood 2nds 175 for 5


Pixie Elliot

Lymington won the toss and decided to field first. With the return of Lymington's opening bowler L Dimaria, Verwood's opening batters were kept tight until S Maycock (23) was out lbw and A Richmond 52 not out. Pick of Lymington's bowlers were young spinner Pixie Elliott bowled 9 - 36 - 3 wickets (pic right) and young J Bowring took his first adult wicket. The forever steady bowling of P Tapper 10-28-0 kept the score to 175.

Lymington set out to chase the score with openers D Jayasinhue (25) and D Dimaria (39) batting well and putting on the runs until D Jayasinhue was caught. J Hawker (24) and N Elliott (29 no) kept the run rate up but with the loss of J Hawker things started to get tense amongst the Lymington team. T Beer (21) had a good stand until caught and with the introduction of L Dimaria (11 no) in the 39th over the 18 runs needed for a win suddenly seemed possible. With the help of 3 wides in the last over N Elliott and L Dimaria got the win with one ball to spare.
