Big-hitting Singh re-writes record books for villagers

Big-hitting Singh re-writes record books for villagers

CHECKENDON captain Manpreet Singh hit a club record innings of 191 not out against REGAL on Sunday but still ended up on the losing side.

The opening batsman’s innings included eight sixes and 20 fours as his side ended their innings on 254-6 off 35 overs.

The visitors were undaunted by their task and with left-handed opener Harjot Sidhu scoring a hard-hitting 129 in good batting conditions were able to reach the target with an over to spare.

The previous day CHECKENDON ran out winners at home to WEST READING in another friendly encounter.

Batting first in this 40-overs friendly match, Ujwal Tikoo gave the hosts a decent start, hitting 41 and when he was fourth man out with the total on 100, club captain Vikas Chib took over, reaching 58 as the home team were dismissed for 183.

In reply the visitors were in a good position at 76-2 with Nufail and A Hussain at the crease. However, three wickets for skipper Chib and four for left arm spinner Harry Wickens turned the game in Checkendon’s favour.

West Reading were bowled out for 153 in the final over of the match.
