Slade’s six-wicket haul on return to side maintains promotion push

DAN HAYDEN and Wynand Lamprecht once again starred as PEPPARD STOKE ROW had the better of

DAN HAYDEN and Wynand Lamprecht once again starred as PEPPARD STOKE ROW had the better of a draw against CROWTHORNE AND CROWN WOOD in their Premier Division clash last Saturday.

Peppard Stoke Row elected to bat but an inspired opening burst from Ravi Godbole reduced the hosts to 12-3.

Hayden joined Andy Watts at the crease and immediately displayed power with his placement shots all round the ground en route to a half century.

Watts combined a stubborn defence with the occasional heave through the leg side in making 47, until his attempt to late cut off spinner Rob Crook ended in the hands of wicket-keeper Chris Allwright.

Godbole returned to run through the lower middle order, and it was left to Hayden to ensure Peppard Stoke Row reached 206 all out.



The visitors’ opening pair of Allwright and Mohammed Izzadeen combined stoic defence with some aggressive shots of their own, and it was only with the score on 85 that Lamprecht made the breakthrough by bowling the former.

The South African then removed Azharudeen Maharoof first ball, and a run out from Ash Hayden and wicket-keeper Richard Ashton removed Godbole cheaply.

Lamprecht wheeled away through 12 overs to claim 6-53, and despite useful contributions from Ant Cluett and Rob Crook, Crowthorne and Crown Wood could only reach 184-8.

WOODCOTE showed their inconsistencies once more as they lost out by 23 runs away to relegation-threatened RUISLIP VICTORIA.

The one bright spot for the visitors was the peformance by Ryan Van Heerden, who followed up his 4-25 in the first innings with a half-century in the second.

All five Woodcote bowlers returned good figures to deny Ruislip a high score as they closed on 175-9.

However, once batting Woodcote lost four early wickets, two to good glove work by keeper Julien. A mid-innings recovery involving Van Heerden, Mike Stroker and Paul Knox appeared to give their team a chance, but in the end Van Heerden’s heroics were in vain as he was left without partners as the home team achieved the victory in 28 overs.

GORING kept their bid for promotion from Division 1 alive with a 60 run victory away to WEST READING 2nds.

Skipper Ollie Carrier chose to bat first and Goring opener Owyn Tong-Jones went on to score his fifth league 50 this season. However, when Tong-Jones fell just one short of a personal milestone of 1,000 runs for the season it triggered a middle order collapse to 140-7.

Chris Winterbottom turned the innings on its head, coming in at number seven and scoring 101, with the second 50 hit off just 15 balls. Goring were all out for 240 in 44 overs.

In reply West Reading went for the victory and it took a full length diving catch behind the stumps by Jonny Russell to dismiss the dangerous Zameer.

A flurry of wickets followed and at 50-4 Goring were confident in wrapping up victory quickly but Adnan Raja and Jabraan Ahmed built a solid fifth wicket partnership and despite being ravaged at the crease by an infestation of flying ants, the pair grew in confidence and both brought up their 50s in quick succession.

With the hosts needing 65 runs to win off nine overs, the game took a vital twist with Raja falling to a freak dismissal, the ball ricocheting off first slips foot to be caught at gully. This stroke of luck was taken advantage of by Goring in supreme fashion â?? wrapping up the last six wickets in just a few overs. Peter Slade was the bowling hero, taking 6-33 — including his 50th dismissal of the season — on his return to the team.

Hosts CHECKENDON returned to winning ways against BRADFIELD by having the confidence to bat first despite damp conditions which gave some assistance to the bowlers.

John Acland-Hood showed good skill in making 96 runs and sharing an opening stand of 71 with Manpreet Singh, which set up the home side for a big total.

Sandeep Hegde’s hard hitting 43 not out took them to 232-7 in their 45 overs.

Bradfield’s second wicket pair P Armstrong and D Filmer appeared to put their team in a good position by taking the score to 113-1 after 24 overs as the wicket dried out.

However, once Vikas Chib had broken that partnership, Tony Breakspear returned for a second spell which saw him finish with 5-48.

Safe catching by Checkendon helped precipitate a collapse which saw the visitors, hampered by an invasion of flying ants, dismissed for 155.

PEPPARD STOKE ROW 3rds produced one of their best performances of the season to annihilate CROWTHORNE AND CROWN WOOD 3rds by 10 wickets in Division 4.

Rob Dyer and Neeraj Sharma reduced the hosts to 7-3, and there was little respite for Crowthorne and Crown Wood as Matt Ravden and Mick Chard ran through the rest of the side to bowl their opponents out for just 61.

That total proved no challenge for Peppard Stoke Row, with in-form Carl Hvass and Dom Hall knocking the runs off in 15.3 overs.
