Hurdle and O’Brien destroy Somerset
Fast bowlers Kevin Hurdle and George O’Brien bagged eight wickets between them as St David’s made light work of ten-men Somerset Cricket Club at Somerset on Saturday.
Somerset did well to dismiss the home side for 225 after they elected to bat.
But they fell well short during the chase as Hurdle and O’Brien picked up four wickets each as the visiting side folded for 71 in 21.4 overs.
Hurdle led the way with four for three off of just 2.4 overs, while opening bowler O’Brien seized four for 30.
Jordan DeSilva (29), the Somerset captain, and Dalin Richardson (21) were the only Somerset batsmen to reach double figures.
Six Somerset batsmen failed to get off the mark.
Earlier, O’Brien also contributed with the bat as he featured in a 63-run opening partnership with captain Chris Douglas (30) that put the home side in early control. Somerset made the breakthrough when St George’s Cup Match player O’Brien departed for 29 but their joy was short-lived as Douglas added a further 82 runs for the third wicket with player-coach George Cannonier, the most senior player on the pitch.
At 160 for four, St David’s were poised for a potentially big score. But a late collapse saw the home side lose their remaining wickets for 65 runs as Somerset enjoyed their best spell in the field.
