MID BUCKS CRICKET LEAGUE DI­VI­SION ONE Hawridge & Choles­bury 218-7 Holmer Green IIs 196 Hawridge won by 24 runs OPEN­ERS Mo­hammed Ri­fai (42) and James Cath (43) set a plat­form of 70 in 13 overs as Hawridge & Choles­bury won on Satur­day. Steve White (20), Ian Hames (33), both at close to a run per ball, Alex Neal (23no) and Matthew Rutt (16no) pro­vided late innings mo­men­tum for 218-7 from 40 overs. Holmer’s rate of 5.5 an over quickly rose as Rutt (0-13) and Chris Wil­liams (2-33) re­stricted them to 32-1 from 12 overs, but Ricket’s 54 kept them in the game.

Cath (3-30) re­moved him and key wicket Har­ris for 45, but Holmer con­tin­ued to attack un­til Ri­fai (1-15) ended their hopes to lift his newly-pro­moted side to sec­ond.
