JAMES KNIGHT hit a century for GREYS GREEN who were held to a closely-fought draw by visitors CRAZIES HILL AND COCKPOLE GREEN on Sunday.
The hosts lost two early wickets to Margrie, who bowled good left arm spin throughout with length and variety but Knight and Skilleter batted equally well, embarking on a stand of 130. Their stand was only broken by the return of Margrie towards the end of the innings but not before Knight had completed 102. Skilleter hit 73 as the hosts declared just before tea on 197-4.
Crazies Hill opened their reply with intent but they were faced by some good bowling in return from Ahmed and Rooke and they enjoyed little luck.
Martin and Noyes fought well to give their team a chance of reaching their target, compiling 80 between them, before the introduction of Shafqat to the attack accounted for Martin for 42.
Crazies Hill still had their eyes on victory and all their batsmen came to the wicket with good intent but Shafqat gradually pegged them back and, by dismissing Noyes for 44, it was Greys who had hopes of pressing for a win.
However, with just a few overs remaining the game ended in a closely-fought draw, Crazies Hill finishing on 160-6.
