MID BUCKS CRICKET LEAGUE DI­VI­SION ONE Pot­ten End 148-9 Hawridge & Choles­bury 149-7 NEIL Jones and Mo­hammed Ri­fai starred with bat and ball re­spec­tively as Hawridge & Choles­bury recorded an im­pres­sive three-wicket vic­tory over lead­ers Pot­ten End on Satur­day.

Af­ter Pot­ten put on 71 in 16 overs for the first wicket, Hawridge pulled the rate back, with Jones (6-19) bowl­ing bril­liantly as they were re­stricted to 148-9 from 40 overs.

Hawridge then looked in con­trol at 72-1 from 10 overs in re­ply, with good in­nings from Ri­fai (58 from 35 balls) and Andy Hal­l­i­day (37), but a mid­dle or­der col­lapse made the chase touch and go. How­ever, Hawridge got over the line with just un­der eight overs left and now lie sixth in Di­vi­sion One, but only 31 points away from sec­ond place. Prest­wood, mean­while, are up to third af­ter beat­ing Lacey Green by 43 runs.
