Match Report


A seven wicket haul from Wooburn Narkovians 2nd XI captain Phil Day brought his side a remarkable win against promotion-chasers Burnham 2nds on Saturday. Wooburn batted first but were reduced to 115 all out, and after Burnham had reached 82-1, the game looked over. However, when Burnham had moved on to 93-3 with 18 overs remaining, Day produced a devastating spell of fast bowling. None of the Burnham batsmen were able to deal with it, and seven wickets fell for just seven runs to give Wooburn an incredible 25 point victory.

There had been little inkling of the drama to come as Burnham won the toss and put Wooburn in to bat. Rehman trapped Derek Milsom leg before early on, and Charlie Stevens accounted for Steve Sweet and John Saunders with a good yorker and a terrific reflex catch. Rob Smith (21) and Phil Day (26) steadied the innings before the Wooburn skipper was bowled by Asif. Morrell and Rob Rogers added useful runs as the home side stuttered to 115 all out. Stevens took 5-25 from 14 overs while Nigel Haines took 3-27 from 15.2 overs.

In reply, Wooburn gained an early success when Dave Small struck with his second ball to remove Mahmood, while Khan was dropped first ball. Khan went on to make 27 while Raja scored 53 as Burnham cruised to 82-1. However, they were to be the only two batsmen to make more than three as Day went on to take 7-27 from 15.2 overs in a memorable personal performance.
