ON A day where runs were hard to come by, HARPSDEN eventually came out winners with a seven-wicket victory against STROKEMAKERS.
Harpsden put Strokemakers into bat having won the toss and were rewarded with early wickets from E Birkett.
Harpsden put pressure on the opposition with tight bowling from youngsters W Bevan, A Bradley and O Brown. However, pick of the bowling was R Birkett who finished with 4—36. Wickets tumbled towards the end with Strokemakers finishing on 124 all out.
Harpsden’s reply started slowly with good bowling from Imran and Sohail but without a loss of a wicket, confidence grew with the two openers and runs started to flow.
Channi was then brought on towards the end which accounted for the wickets of both W Stevens (42) and A Birkett (43). J Bradley fell early but B Hancock (19 not out), ably supported by A Cary, guided the side home to victory in the 36th over.
