A win next week at Kimberley would put the 2nds in an almost unassailable position as they look to replace the 1sts in Division A.
There was disappointment in Division H as a comprehensive 9 wicket win for Balderton left the 3rds almost certainly needing to win their last two game to have any chance of avoiding relegation. The game started reasonably well as we reached 199 for 8 from our 45 overs with Gordon Airey making 52. However Balderton made short work of reaching their target losing only one wicket in the process.
The 3rds play Hucknall away next week in a game between the two teams most likely to fill the third relegation spot.
The 4ths had a comfortable 78 run win on Long Lane against Chilwell to maintain their position in third place in Division L. After being asked to bat first there were runs all the way down the order as the innings closed on 198 for 9. Carl Knight top scored with a jug-avoiding 49, Lakshay Sharma made 36, Dave Harris 24, Joe Chima 22 and Set Puddy 18. On the bowling front all bowlers used were juniors from the club and they all claimed at least one wicket; Lakshay Sharma sealed the man of the match award with 4 for 37 and there was 3 for 28 from Dilip Krishanand.
