Perfect record is still intact

West Hallam’s first XI travelled to Pilsley in what promised to be a test for their bowlers as they were preparing to face the prolific Saeed Bin Nasir.

With Pilsley asked to bat first by Thomas Lockhart the innings started well with Bin Nasir finding the boundary regularly.

With the score in the 40s Peter Hort managed to trap Bin Nasir LBW for just 29 and panic set in.

The wicket of Bin Nasir breathed life into the Hallam team and Hort and Lee Barrow were rampant in their destruction of Pilsley, Hort taking six wickets and Barrow the other four as Pilsley were bowled out for 87.

The reply started disastrously with George Brandrick being caught behind off the first ball of the innings.

But this was the only wobble as Tim Hampton-Matehe and Matt Tatler saw it home, both scoring an unbeaten 43.

Hallam have now reached the halfway point of the season and won every single game they have played, a feat that is rarely achieved by any other clubs.
