A 35-OVER match played in cold and damp conditions at CHECKENDON on Sunday
A 35-OVER match played in cold and damp conditions at CHECKENDON on Sunday resulted in a close finish which went the way of visitors HARROW WAYFARERS by the margin of only a single wicket.
On a slow pitch the home side had reached 68-3 at the half way point of their innings thanks to John Acland-Hood’s rapid 36. However, they were unable to build on this and were bowled out for 118 with four overs left unbowled.
The Harrow innings followed a similar pattern with a sound start, followed by a collapse against the bowling of Jim Warren and Tony Breakspear.
Joint top scorer M Shave remained undefeated and despite steady rain hit the winning boundary with nine wickets down and only four balls to spare.
