There was plenty of action in the Southern Premier League, Round 7, on June 15 with several close matches and a few last-minute surprises.

In the ECB Premier Division, the match between Burridge and Bournemouth ended in a draw.

Burridge scored 178 in 49 overs, thanks in part to Southon's unbeaten 36 and contributions from Chowdhury and Collings-Wells.

Bournemouth only managed 152 in 43 overs, although Webb and Rogers put in respectable half-centuries.

The most impressive player of the game was Ullah, who claimed five wickets for only 21 runs.

In another match, Basingstoke & North Hants won by four wickets against Havant.

Donaldson shined with his bowling, taking six wickets for only 29 runs.

His teammate A Neal chipped in with three wickets and a useful knock of 35 runs.

South Wilts beat Lymington by six wickets, thanks largely to Broderick's 57 runs and Grant’s bowling figures of six wickets for only 40 runs.

In Division 1, Portsmouth bagged an impressive 88-run victory over Waterlooville with Ashraful hitting a robust 115.

St Cross Symondians II in Division 2 was triumphant over Sway by 20 runs.

The star of the match was Nichols with 46 runs and capturing four wickets.

In Division 3, Paultons squeaked by with a slim one-wicket win over Hook & Newnham Basics II.

Clark's bowling was remarkable, five wickets for only 10 runs.

Parley defeated Fareham & Crofton by simply eight runs, where Savage made a significant difference by scoring 52. The weather played spoilsport in a few matches causing them to be either cancelled or abandoned, demonstrating again that cricket is a game played as much against opponents as against the elements.
