MID BUCKS CRICKET LEAGUE DI­VI­SION ONE Holmer Green 2nds Chal­lon­ers 79 all out

81-2 re­moved opener Dave Ward in his first over. The wickets con­tin­ued and the vis­i­tors looked in trou­ble as they stut­tered to 28-4.

Holmer pro­vided a small fight­back through cap­tain Luke Rickett and Mike Nash, who put on a 50-run sixth-wicket part­ner­ship, but when Rickett lost his wicket for 49, they suf­fered an­other col­lapse and were skit­tled out for 79.

Things looked equally dis­mal for Chal­lon­ers early in their re­ply as Chris Price fell for just eight to Finn McAndrew and As­ghar Mah­mood went for seven, caught at point by Matt Lan­don off the bowl­ing of Simon Walker, but an ex­pe­ri­enced per­for­mance from Saqid Ali and Cham­ber­lain guided them to victory.

There were bet­ter for­tunes for Holmer’s firsts (128) in the Pre­mier, as they beat Wad­des­don (98) by 30 runs, while back in Di­vi­sion One Hawridge & Choles­bury (129-9) lost by just five runs to Wen­dover (134-9).
