Bexley fail to match Bromley’s professional class

PUBLISHED: 11:51 17 June 2014

Bexley slumped to their third defeat of the season in the Shepherd Neame Kent Premier League at Bromley on Saturday, by the wide margin of 86 runs.

The visitors started brightly with the ball in hand, this was no mean feat, as opening the batting for the opposition was current Australian international all-rounder, Dan Christian.

Mehdi Abbas was controversially adjudged to have claimed the wicket of Christian, when he was caught behind by Jack Potter for 36 with the score on 51.

Bromley finished on 227-5 from their 55 overs, this was partly due to leg-spinner Adeel Malik who picked up 3 for 43 from his 15 overs.

The run chase started poorly with both Bexley openers, Jas Bassan (5) and Kashif Nizami (5), succumbing to the pace and aggression of the fierce Bromley opening attack of Christian and Kent fast bowler, Robbie Joseph.

At 12-2, Jack Bell joined George Wells at the crease. The pair battled gamely for a while, before Wells (13) gloved one to short-leg, fending off a short ball from around the wicket off Joseph.

At 94-8, it was clear that it was not to be Bexley’s day. However, Henry Pickering blasted 37 not out from 20 balls batting at number 10 to spare some embarrassment. Bexley dismissed for just 141.
