HOME COUN­TIES PRE­MIER CRICKET LEAGUE DI­VI­SION TWO Amer­sham Datchet 192-8 194-4 A SU­PERB un­beaten knock of 86 from An­drew Viney was not enough to pre­vent an open­ing day de­feat for Amer­sham on Satur­day.

Although they lost opener Adam Ali cheaply early on, Amer­sham re­cov­ered to reach 100-2 be­fore the next wicket fell, Viney part­ner­ing Bruce Frid­erichs who made 41.

But there­after, Viney found part­ners who stuck around hard to come by, with only Maduka Liyana­p­athi­ran­age mak­ing dou­ble fig­ures as Amer­sham slumped to 192-8 from their 50 overs.

In re­ply, Stu­art Rogers did his best with 2-28, with Frid­erichs tak­ing the catches both times, but Datchet eased to a six-wicket win in 46.3 overs.

Mean­while, a stel­lar cast of crick­eters will be ex­pected when the Lash­ings World XI re­turns to Shard­loes on Fri­day, July 24. Call 07818 066 338 for more de­tails.
