WOODCOTE had the better of their Premier Division draw away to SOUTH EAST READING last Saturday.

WOODCOTE had the better of their Premier Division draw away to SOUTH EAST READING last Saturday.

Visiting captain Titch Vickers won the toss and elected to bat first.

Knox (112) hit a century for the second week running while Macdonald (42) and Henderson (41) helped Woodcote post 269-8.

In reply South East Reading held on for the draw as they closed on 180-7.

Vikas Chib hit a century as CHECKENDON picked up a draw from their match at PEPPARD in a game that yielded 510 runs.

The visitors batted first and an early wicket by Mo Khan was followed by another from Roy Hayden but these were the last successes for some time as Chib and Ashish Talreja both added 157 for the third wicket.

Checkendon looked comfortable at 230-2 wickets by the 40th over but the return of Roy Hayden and Tim Vines in their second spells saw the visitors restricted to 274-9 in their 45 overs.

After losing Mick Chard junior early, adjudged lbw, Senthil mUNIYASAMY fired a quick 46 off 31 balls as Peppard raced along at six an over.

Most of the middle order disappeared with small scores and it was left to a lively stand of 59 between Ronnie Brock and Hugh Asquith to see Peppard to a draw.

Hosts WEST READING took another step towards securing the league title as they dismantled lowly STOKE ROW by nine wickets.

Home captain Imran Razaq inserted Stoke Row after winning the toss but teenage openers Will Bishop and Harry Jordan eased the visitors to 30-0 after six overs.

A leading edge from Jordan was pouched by Adnan Naseer off his own bowling and a flurry of wickets left Stoke Row on 55-4. Sam Boughton and Rich Ashton hit back for Stoke Row despite the latter being struck on the head by a Sultan Khan bouncer but the re-introduction of Hafeez Ul-Wahab tilted the balance firmly in favour of title favourites Reading.

The seamer knocked Boughton’s off stump out of the ground to end an 85-run fifth wicket partnership, and off spinner Adam Davidson bowled Ashton four balls later to leave Stoke 140-6.

Ul-Wahab (6-19) ripped out Stoke Row’s tail as the visitors were dismissed for 164.

In reply Davidson and Khan were never in trouble. Stoke Row’s sole scalp came from 15-year-old left arm spinner Chris Humphreys, who enticed Khan into offering an edge to Charles Lamprecht at gully.

The breakthrough merely hastened the conclusion of the game, with Rahim Khan entering the fray and bludgeoning an unbeaten 31 from 23 balls as West Reading continued their push for the title.
