A 92-RUN second wicket stand between Jack Hoyle and debutant Aidan Keeble put CHECKENDON well on the way to a substantial score in their 35 over match at home to CROWMARSH on Sunday.
Big-hitting from Sridhar Pydipati took the total to 185-8. Eddie Gray took three wickets for Crowmarsh with his leg breaks.
Former Checkendon player Suri Reddy led the reply with a half century before being run out.
Chris Strange almost turned the game for the visitors hitting 31 not out but pacy and accurate bowling form Vikas Chib at the death ensured that the home side ran out winners by five runs.
