Wonderful Whittaker wins it for hosts

CHRISTIAN WHITTAKER hit an undefeated century to help hosts HARPSDEN defeat REGALS on Sunday.

CHRISTIAN WHITTAKER hit an undefeated century to help hosts HARPSDEN defeat REGALS on Sunday.

The visitors won the toss and elected to bat first and put on 50 without loss. However, a couple of wickets from Rod Birkett pegged Regals back.

The visitors lost wickets at regular intervals which made Vaibhav’s job that much harder as he played a chanceless and crucial innings to make 74 before being caught on the boundary.

Some big hitting at the end by Kapil meant that Regals finished up on a respectable 215 off their 40 overs.

In reply Harpsden looked comfortable until Mick Greenwood was bowled by Pargi which then brought the crucial partnership of Tom Mitchell and Whittaker whose innings included shots all around the ground.



When Mitchell was well bowled by Amar, Ed Andrews played an important innings before being run out which left Adam Birkett and Whittaker to wrap up the match with four overs to spare.
