Deep Fielding The Difference As Hythe 3's Lose Out To New Milton


Tom HUXLEY 28*


Hythe 3's gave Champion favourites New Milton a closer game before going down by 15 runs this evening at Priestlands.

New Milton with four wins out of four under their belt - won the toss and elected to bat first . 26 came off the first 3 overs before Tom Richards caught & bowled dangerman N.Elliott for 9 - NM 34-1 off 4. Locke was begining to open up when Richards took a catch off the bowling of Stovell 41-2. Miller was then caught by Richards off the bowling of Huxley for 5 and the Green Caps looked as if they could keep the score under 100. Tilbury retired on 25* but R.Vallis 21* kept the score flowing. 50 runs came off the last 3 overs helped by 6 wides and New Milton finished on 122 for 3.

Hythe started their reply well as Stovell and Richards had 31 on the board after 4 overs. Over 5 - Stovell hit Elliott for a four but was then next ball bowled for 21 - Hythe 47-1 after 6 the exact same score as NM game on so we thought. But then the Hythe batsman struggled to find the back wall on a number of occasions and Huxley especially was inches from 2 sixes. Miller particularly was difficult to get away 12 dot balls in his 3 over including a maiden 0-12. After 10 overs Hythe had moved onto 72 and the game was slipping away. Huxley and Richards took their partnership to 50 before Richards was run out for 20. Huxley hit a six and retired on 28* - Page and Gilbert saw out the final 3 deliveries. Hythe 107-2 some 15 runs short but a decent showing.
