Saturday Results

With both the 1st XI and 2nd XI heading their respective divisions, yesterday's games for both teams against their nearest rivals for the champions spot were real 30 pointers.  Happily their lead at the top was extended with a winning draw for the 1st XI and a win for the 2nd XI.

At Collingham a crucial 4th wicket partnership of 101 between Byron Haycock who finished with 57 and yet another 50 from Ben Bhabra was the foundation

of the innings. Their efforts gave free rein to Ash De-Alwis, all deft touches and placement, and skipper Dom Harvey, less graceful but more powerful, to come in towards the end of the innings to boost the run rate.  Ash hit 40 unbeaten runs from 37 balls and Dom 30 unbeaten runs from just 16 balls as the innings closed at 243 for 5.  In reply, wickets fell regularly to see Collingham struggling at 113 for 7 from 33 overs.  However an unbeaten partnership of 93, that perhaps gave the team a few doubting moments, took the home side to within 37 runs.  The win opened up a 34 point gap at the top of the table with 4 games remaining.


Jack Harrison
The 2nds entertained Plumtree at The Strand and restricted the visitors to 186 for 5 from their 48 overs.  In a relatively untroubled reply Jack Harrison (60*) and Josh Knight put on an unbeaten 85 for the 6th wicket, whilst there were 30s for Rich Henson and James Grenfell. The target being reached with 8 overs to spare.  The 5 wicket win opens up a 16 point gap at the top of Division B with a game in hand.


There was more disappointment for the 3rds as they went down by 3 wickets at Southwell.  Young Tom Black top scored with 26 in a total of 129 for 6 which Southwell knocked off with 12 overs to spare.  Seth Puddy starring with the ball as he claimed 3 wickets.
