Redlynch & Hale v Liss: LISS travelled to Wiltshire to take on undefeated Redlynch and Hale on Saturday.

On a soft track Liss were put into bat. It was hard work to start but Kemp and Pleace junior ground it out and did not give their wicket away. Pleace junior got off the mark in the tenth over and the opening pair then started to knock the ball around well.

Liss built a solid opening partnership with Pleace junior picking up regular boundaries. The total reached 81 before Kemp was caught for 37. Two overs later Liss lost their second wicket, but Pleace junior was in full flow and went past his 50.

Cowell was the next to go for 18 after a 59-run partnership with Pleace junior.

Pearce and Hannam were then dismissed, but Pleace junior smashed the ball to all parts and reached his first century of the year. Allcock joined Pleace junior and the pair took Liss past 200 before Pleace junior was caught in the deep for a superb 138.

Some quick runs from Allcock from the last few overs saw Liss finish on 238-7.

Blanks and Charles opened the bowling for Liss, and Charles struck early when he dismissed Webber. Charles then took three more to leave the home side struggling on 50-4 after 16 overs.

Benson and Vincent then punished every bad delivery and picked the run rate up before Hedicker broke the partnership in the 29th over.

Hedicker then took three more wickets to put Liss back on top, and the returning Cowell picked up the last two wickets in two deliveries as the home side were bowled out for 172.
