MID BUCKS CRICKET LEAGUE DI­VI­SION ONE Had­den­ham 152 all out Chal­lon­ers 128 all out CHAL­LON­ERS were al­ways go­ing to find it dif­fi­cult to reach their tar­get of 153 af­ter Had­den­ham re­duced their re­ply to 25-5 within 13 overs.

Ear­lier, Dar­rin Charl­ton (3-28) had been the star of the Chal­lon­ers at­tack as Had­den­ham were bowled out for 152.

But if Chal­lon­ers thought that they were in with a chance then they were not pre­pared for the Had­den­ham open­ing bowlers, who pro­ceed to blow the top or­der away, and it was only when As­ghar Mah­mood was joined at the crease by Ed Boughton that they start to make a come­back.

A 43-run sev­enth-wicket part­ner­ship be­tween the pair fi­nally got Chal­lon­ers go­ing, and when Boughton was out for 21, he was re­placed by Howard Cham­ber­lain, and a 37-run part­ner­ship gave Chal­lon­ers more hope.

But that part­ner­ship was ended with Mah­mood on 47, run out by a di­rect hit. Cham­ber­lain tried to push the score along but fell for 20 not long af­ter.
