Burridge on receiving end of Bashley skipper Digby’s stunning haul – the best Southern Premier League top flight bowling figures for seven years
Burridge were on the receiving end of the best bowling figures in the Southern Premier League’s top flight for over seven years.
Bringing himself on as first change to bowl the 13th over, Digby conceded just five runs off his first four overs before ending a 72-run opening stand between Azimunnoor Chowdhury (45) and Jack Paskins (34) by dismissing the former.
A score of 72-0 became 94-4 when Digby removed Paskins, Chris Blake (7) and Nathan Schultz (7).

Joe Collings-Wells - hitting 43 as stand-in skipper in the absence of Hilio De Abreu - and Dan Stancliffe (27) took Burridge to 183-5. But Digby brought himself back into the attack and the last five wickets clattered for just 21 runs.
Digby’s figures are the second best recorded across the four SPL divisions in 2022 - behind only Portsmouth & Southsea seamer Jake Peach’s 7-17 haul against Basingstoke & North Hants 2nds in a Division 3 fixture on June 4.
Opener Will Tripcony (60), Tom Friend (55 not out) and Jacob Gordon (49) eased Bashley to victory.
Elsewhere in the top flight, Lymington’s Daniel Cox bagged 6-33 as Hook & Newnham Basics’ woes continued. The cellar dwellers were hustled out for 114 en route to an eight-wicket defeat.
