Bowling attack put batsmen on rack

A STRONG Kidmore End Sunday side reached 186 all out in a 40-over friendly at Checkendon.

A STRONG Kidmore End Sunday side reached 186 all out in a 40-over friendly at Checkendon.

On a rain-affected pitch, opener A Ul-Wahab hit 45, with two sixes and seven fours, while Jake Eaton made a more restrained 52.

Off-spinner Manpreet Singh was the most successful bowler with 3-25 while there was also a tight spell of 2-19 from Tony Breakspear.

Jim Warren, Vikas Chib and Matt Heslop were outstanding in the field for the home side.

An solid opening partnership of 54 between Ujwal Tickoo and Manpreet Singh in reply, gave Checkendon hope of victory but the depth and variety of the Kidmore bowling proved too much as they were dismissed for 143 in 34.5 overs.
