Hinckley Times - - SPORT -

HINCK­LEY Towns win­ning run came to an end on Satur­day when they lost at Roth­ley by 28 runs, al­though they man­aged to gain 11 valu­able points from the game.

This was quite a good per­for­mance con­sid­er­ing they had key play­ers miss­ing and Roth­ley are top of the ta­ble and al­ready pro­moted. Hinck­ley won the toss and asked the hosts to bat. They lost their first wicket when Sheikh was caught and bowled by Hinck­ley cap­tain Rag Sen for 13 with the score on 27. Then a sec­ond-wicket stand of 101 be­tween opener Ir­fan Karin and num­ber three Sam Wood took them on to 128 af­ter 25 overs.

At this point Ward was lbw to Va­land for 58. The im­pres­sive Karm then dom­i­nated pro­ceed­ings un­til he was sev­enth out for 107 shar­ing a sixth wicket stand of 60 with Chris Tre­vis.

Roth­ley fin­ished on 233 for 8 af­ter 43 overs the game be­ing re­duced by two overs be­cause of rain.

Bapo­dra and Va­land both took twow­ick­ets for Hinck­ley and Deuchande 3. Hinck­ley’s in­nings got off to a good start be­ing well ahead of the re­quired run rate.

Pa­tel and Pathan putting on 24 for the first wicket. Pa­tel was bowled by Welch for 21 at which point Pa­then was joined by Va­land and they took the score on to 91 with Pathan even­tu­ally be­ing caught off the bowl­ing of Sheik for 29.

Al­though Hinck­ley were well up with the run rate they be­gan to lose wick­ets at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals. Hinck­ley’s num­ber seven Ja­plan Pa­tel was their top scorer with 47 and was last out with the score on 205 in the 42nd over. Roth­ley’s Adam Hack­ett took four wick­ets for 32 runs and Alif Sheik 3. Hinck­ley now play sec­ond in the ta­ble Crop­ston in their last two games. The first is at home on Satur­day know­ing a win would see them math­e­mat­i­cally safe .
