Basingstoke’s former Hampshire and Kent pace bowler David Griffiths took five wickets in seven balls, including a hat-trick, against Burridge at Botley Road.
But still finished on the losing side as Burridge rallied to chase down a 179-run target – the eventual four-wicket win enhancing their growing ECB Southern Premier League title hopes.
Griffiths took centre stage with Burridge going nicely at 67 without loss, having dismissed the visitors for 179.
Bowling his second over, Griffiths caught and bowled Azim Chowdhury (26) and then, with his next ball, clean bowled Richard Lock (67-2).
Nine runs later and with the first ball of his third over, Griffiths completed his hat-trick, bowling opener Joe Collings-Wells (37).
His ‘four-in-four’ came when he knocked Lee Savident’s off-stump out of the ground.
The ex-Hampshire man’s fifth wicket (in seven balls) came when stand-in skipper Will Steward gloved a catch to wicketkeeper Laurence Benge. His remarkable spell had Burridge reeling at 76-5.
But that was as good as it got for Basingstoke as Dan Stancliffe steadied the ship and, with a thoroughly responsible 59 not out, won the match for the championship contenders.
Recruiting young Ollie Wright (21 not out) in a timely support role, Stancliffe took his side across the line.
Earlier Basingstoke were rocking at 8-3 after a new-ball blast from Ollie Southon (3-44), but recovered through Sibz Makhanya (36), Brad Neal (26) and man-of-the-match Griffiths, who made 48.
Sully White (3-34) and Lock (3-38) shard six of the other wickets.
