Singh‘s century in vain as tourists fall short

CHECKENDON‘S annual Sussex tour began at NEWICK on a worn pitch that had plenty of bounce

CHECKENDON‘S annual Sussex tour began at NEWICK on a worn pitch that had plenty of bounce in it.

John Acland-Hood and John Green rode their luck to give the tourists‘ innings some substance but six ducks told a truer story in a total of 118 all out.

Green also stood out with the ball taking two wickets bowling up the hill but Hague and Morratt soon knocked off the runs for the home side.

ROTTINGDEAN hosted their traditional CHECKENDON tour fixture for a 40 over match which turned out to be a memorable encounter. Former Sussex youth player George Ledden hit an undefeated century for the home side as they reached 200-8 despite some fine bowling from young seamer Sam Arrowsmith who took 3-29.

Captain for the day Manpreet Singh replied with 108 for the visitors who kept their target just within reach throughout.

However, a spell of 4-46 from left arm spinner Adi Chakripathy meant Checkendon needed six to tie from the last ball, a valiant effort leaving them three runs adrift.
