Crouch end batted first and murf and mark made 40 start before murf departed which brought zz to the crease and they took the score past 150 when murf gave mark out!! shobuj left quickly and sash then took on the bowling and hit a brisk 30.

207-5 at 45 overs not enough we thought and so it proved with harefield getting home with 4 wkts to spare and 6 overs.

The bowling was average and the fielding less so although full marks to mike for stirling work on the boundary and… Continue

2nd XI vs North London

I wasn't sure before Saturday's friendly whether I'd be putting in a report; and when we were about 6 down for 40-odd chasing 276 I was fairly certain I wouldn't bother. But then a marvellous thing happened. We didn't snatch a victory - not that marvellous - but those of us who stayed had the pleasure of witnessing a very special innings from Wasif. With the score on 199 he was last out for 120.
