Fine Form Continues For Fifties

BERKSHIRE Over 50s continued their fine form with a brilliant eight-wicket trouncing of Kent in their ECB Championship Group 5 clash at Falkland.

BERKSHIRE Over 50s continued their fine form with a brilliant eight-wicket trouncing of Kent in their ECB Championship Group 5 clash at Falkland.
Kent won the toss and elected to bat on a good surface and ​ ​ Mark Alexander (24) and Glyn Gunning (56) put on 69 for the first wicket before the former edged Phil Oxley to wicketkeeper Andrew Davis.
That did not derail the visitors, though, as Andy Allon (45) helped Gunning put on 61 for the second wicket.
The opener finally departed after 94 balls at the crease when he was caught by captain Gary Loveday off the bowling of Nigel Trumper (2-35), who also removed Allon shortly after courtesy of a Mark Simmons ​catch. Berkshire began to turn the screw and Oxley castled Phil Blakeman to leave Kent 159-4.
Leg spinner David Hartley (2-39) picked up two wickets late on and it was only an enterprising innings from Kent captain Simon Routh (38no from 31 balls) which helped his side to 216-6 from their 45 overs.
Berkshire also made a strong start as Loveday and Gordon Morgan put on 61 before the skipper was bowled by Alan Amos. ​ ​ The bowler then enacted a run out to dismiss Dave Tooze leaving Berkshire 74-2. ​ ​ What followed was an outstanding, unbeaten partnership between Morgan and Oxley.
Morgan reached a magnificent 142 not out from 122 balls, while Oxley’s unbeaten 45 came from 64 deliveries.​
