Netherfield progress after derby day win

Netherfield v Kendal
Netherfield sauntered into the next round of the Lancashire Cup after a resounding 8 wicket victory against Kendal in the local derby encounter on a rain affected afternoon at Parkside Road.
Bevan Small’s second innings undefeated knock of 58 off 73 balls as well as Ben Barrows 52 off 68 saw Netherfield chase down a revised total of 157, after Tom Benn’s first innings knock of 56 saw Kendal post a competitive score of 154-4 off a rain reduced 31 overs.
Rain caused problems at the start of the day after both teams played 1 over, before a lengthy delay which saw the game suspended until 4.15.
Once play resumed Netherfield made a good start after Bevan Small picked up the prize wicket of Wes Marshall who was caught behind by Finlay Richardson.
Saeed Bariwala and Tom Benn began to frustrate the Netherfield attack with a stubborn second wicket partnership of 58.
Netherfield broke the visitor’s resistance when Robbie Dwyer bowled Bariwala for 21-24 balls. Ben Phillips and Benn pushed the score onto 123 with an imposing third wicket partnership of 63.
However Small who was brought back into the attack picked up two quick wickets after seeing off Ben Phillips who was caught behind by Finlay Richardson for 46 before claiming the wicket of Oliver Killiner who picked out James Bowman for 0.
Benn and Terry Hunte pushed Kendal to a competitive total of 157-4, Benn closed on an undefeated 56-19 while Terry Hunte rolled back years with a quick fire 17 off 13 balls.
In reply Kendal made the early breakthrough after Toby Tyson picked up the wicket of Lewis Edge who was caught by Chris Miller.
However Netherfield from that point dominated the innings after both Ben Barrow and Bevan Small posting an imposing second wicket stand of 93.
The partnership which came at an important time saw Netherfield surge closer to victory and while Kuldeep Singh trapped Barrow LBW for 52, Netherfield sauntered to victory after both Small and Brad Earl made light work of the Kendal attack.
Earl posted an undefeated 33 off 20 balls while Small posted an undefeated 58-73, while Earl scored the winnings runs with Netherfield closing on 157-2 off 27.3 overs.
Netherfield travel to play Leigh in the next round!
