Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

BROTH­ERS Chris and Michael Mor­ris ripped through the Wen­dover bats­men on Satur­day as Mid Bucks cham­pi­ons Ley Hill re­turned to win­ning ways.

Wen­dover were soon re­duced to 25- 5, open­ing bowler Craig Ot­t­away claim­ing the first of his three vic­tims with his se­cond ball on his way to 3-29, be­fore Michael (4-14) and el­der brother Chris (2-23) took over to dis­miss Wen­dover for 84.

Skip­per Craig Peter­son and fel­low opener Ol­lie Runswick then led a sen­si­ble re­ply and nearly scored all the runs needed be­tween them, the first wicket fall­ing with just four more runs needed as Runswick of­fer­ing the sim­plest of catches just three short of his half-cen­tury.

With just a few more runs needed, in came Lewis Thomp­son to score a blus­ter­ing four and win the match for the Hill.

Colin Bow­den (51) did man­age a half-cen­tury, how­ever, as the 2s racked up a splen­did 225-9 at Fre­ith, ably as­sisted by Ghu­lam Mustafa (46) and Az Shakoor (37), and while Fre­ith replied with 163-5, they just ran out of overs.

The 3s made it a first clean sweep of the sea­son by beat­ing Cad­more End 2s, An­thony Gaze post­ing 68 and Talib Hussain an un­beaten 45 as the Hill made 156-8, be­fore Paul Green (5-33) and An­sur Mah­mood (3-42) helped bowl Cad­more out for 125.

Ballinger Wag­goners re­main top of the Pre­mier af­ter beat­ing Had­den­ham by eight wick­ets, while Holmer Green ham­mered Hawridge & Choles­bury by 175 runs. In Di­vi­sion One, Chal­lon­ers lost to Ayles­bury 2s but Prest­wood beat Lit­tle Gad­des­don.
