Match was Drawn

Match report Salfords 2XI played Headley Old Freemans 1XI in Surrey Downs League Division 2 game on Saturday. Salfords won the toss and opted to bowl first on what looked like a perfect batting track. Salfords opening bowling pair Lal Babu (7-0-26-0) and Satya Madagala (8-1-19-1) started with a tidy spell but Headley Old Freemans openers Jo Huttler (58) and Andy Brooks (38) were very good to build a solid first wicket partnership of 73. With nothing much happening with fast bowling options, Rizwan Haq gave the first break to Salfords. Headley Old Freemans middle order too have tested Salfords bowlers as Marcel Van Wyk (49) and Steve Barton (40) also scored run at a quick rate. Sanjai Palliyil (8-0-46-5) bowled an inspiring spell to help Salfords secure 3 bowling points by producing key breaks. Surendranath Machupalli (10-2-47-1) is the other wicket taker for Salfords. Headley Old Freemans skipper declared the innings with score board marking 230-8 at the end of 42 over. Salfords, with a mammoth target to chase, didn't trouble scorers much with 22-2 in 10 overs. Skipper Gowtham (24) and Surendranath Machupalli (95) then stabilised the innings with a key partnership of 77 runs and more importantly not losing another wicket until 29th over. Surendranath Machupalli paced his innings beautifully building valuable partnerships with lower order but caught out in deep mid wicket missing out on a well deserved century. Salfords lower order kept the scorers busy and helped Salfords to reach 184-7 by the end of the game and secure bonus points. Though ended up with a losing draw, Salfords demonstrated true grit and character to hand the table leaders first draw of the season. Headley Old Freemans won all the games before this match. Salfords will play Horsley and Send 2XI next weeek.
