Sudbury started their 2009 campaign with a resounding six-wicket

Sudbury won the toss and elected to bowl. Sudbury's new overseas coach, Jandre Coetzee, was among the early wickets, clean bowling the Woodbridge opening bat for 0. Coetzee and Taylor were impessive, keeping the run-rate down to barely one an over for the first ten overs. Simmons and Batch also added to the stranglehold, restricting the visitors to 160-8 in the allotted 50 overs.

In reply, Sudbury started strongly, Siegert (31) and Phillips (28) putting on 66 for the first wicket. Four wickets fell quickly and at 99-4, Woodbridge may have felt in with a chance. However, the impressive Batch (53) on debut and old-timer Pears (21) were solid with an unbroken partnership of 62 to see the home team to victory.

On Saturday, Sudbury face a trip to Wivenhoe.
