Stirlands’ success is Wisborough’s woe

ON another very hot day, the wicket was dry and Wisborough won the toss and elected to bat at home to Stirlands in division three west of the Sussex League.

Anthony Ender got straight to work making the most of some up-and-down bounce, getting two early wickets and leaving Wisborough six for two.

Leading wicket-taker Struan Cameron was introduced early on a pitch that was dry and very likely to spin. He continued his good run and took the big wicket of Alex Edwards for 16.

Rajesh Maru (30) was the only Wisborough player to really get to grips with the pitch and when Chris May found his line and had him caught and bowled, Wisborough had no real chance of posting a competitive total and were bowled out for 93 in just 26.1 overs. Cameron took five for 28 from 20 overs ably supported by May (2-30), Ender (2-16) and Nick Hunt (1-0).

Stirlands went about the chase in their normal fashion with Stuart Hanks hitting anything loose and Heather hitting the bad balls and rotating the strike at the other end.

They did not show any signs of being in trouble and it took them only 21.3 overs to knock off the total without losing a wicket.

The dominant Hanks scored 43 not our and Heather 42. Stirlands secured 30 points and continue to keep on the heels of Billingshurst at the top.
