Singh’s century the highlight as hosts make light work of victory

PEPPARD STOKE ROW secured a 108-run victory at MORTIMER WEST END as they maintained their unbeaten

PEPPARD STOKE ROW secured a 108-run victory at MORTIMER WEST END as they maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier Division season on Saturday.

However, until the second innings, this game was by no means as one-sided as the scorecard implies. Winning the toss and choosing to field, veteran Kenny Alsobrook and Andy Trott bowled with some pace and bounce, with the former trapping Wynand Lamprecht lbw and Trott tucking up Fergus Nutt so his attempted pull lobbed tamely to mid-on.

Andy Watt chased a wide one from Nick Kingston to give a simple catch to the keeper and Peppard Stoke Row were 41-3 with 12 overs gone.

Sam Boughton and Dan Hayden put things right with 52 from 12 overs before the latter sportingly walked after a fine edge. Paddy Hennessy then poked a leading edge back to Bob Hodson and Peppard Stoke Row were in trouble at 110-5.

Boughton and Charles Lamprecht put on 132 for the sixth wicket before the latter was bowled off the last ball of the innings for 60 from 55 balls. His innings included eight fours and a six, leaving Boughton unbeaten on 94 from 108 balls (nine fours and three sixes).

Chasing 243, Mortimer West End were unable to deal with South African Matt Hopper who claimed 5-40 from 12 overs.

With the division’s top wicket taker Ashley Hayden claiming two more scalps, and Dion Sampson, Charles Lamprecht and Dan Hayden picking up one apiece, the hosts were eventually dismissed for 134, captain Kingston top scoring with 35.

WOODCOTE achieved a much-needed 52-run win against bottom of the table, WELFORD PARK. However, they only completed the win with seven balls to spare as Welford clung on desperately to try to make the draw.

Put into bat the home side made a good start with openers Lennard and Brouard sharing a half-century partnership. Then came a middle-order collapse, before Mike Stroker played well for his 28 and Zaheer Ahmed and Mark Pearson put on 44 for the ninth wicket.

After tea Welford Park were made to struggle by the Woodcote attack and lost wickets at regular intervals. Zaheer Ahmed bowled a beautiful 12-over spell to take 3-34 and JP Brouard, after top-scoring with the bat, also excelled with the ball with 3-25, including the removal of the Welford top-scorer, Alleyne.

It was left to skipper Ryan Van Heerden to remove Barrett in the penultimate over to secure the deserved win.

In Division 1 CHECKENDON ran out winners at home to IBIS MAPLEDURHAM.

On a placid pitch the visitors reached 141-1 in the 34th overs thanks to the batting of Will McKay and Chris Webber plus some indifferent fielding from the hosts. The visitors failed to capitalise on this and were restricted to 203-4 at the end of their allotted overs.

Checkendon’s top order made light work of the target as Manpreet Singh struck 125, his innings including five sixes and four fours before retiring with cramp.

Ash Talreja remained undefeated for 47 as the home side cruised to victory with almost 10 overs to spare.

Elsewhere in the division GORING had to settle for a losing draw at SULHAMSTEAD AND UFTON.

Batting first the hosts put on 193-6. In reply Goring kept up with the run chase but lost wickets and closed five runs short of victory on 189-9.

James Hern’s unbeaten 53 steered PEPPARD STOKE ROW 3rds to a five-wicket win at EMMBROOK AND BEARWOOD 3rds in Division 4.

Captain Rob Dyer (2-40) and U15 Josh Smith (2-31) impressed with the new ball for Peppard Stoke Row, before Mick Chard took 3-18 from 10 overs.

Emmbrook were indebted to a fine 109 from opener Amit Viroja as they closed their 45 overs on 182-9.

In reply, useful contributions from Don Townsin (31) and Pradeep Kumar (32) set the innings on the right course before U15 Danny May again showed his class with 43.

Peppard Stoke Row lost a couple more wickets but Hern shepherded them over the line and up to second place in the early-season table.
