Bin­field miss out on ti­tle af­ter fi­nal day thrash­ing at Taplow

The Wokingham Paper - - ROUND-UP -

BIN­FIELD’S slim Di­vi­sion 1 ti­tle hopes were crushed af­ter a 10-wicket thrash­ing at the hands of Taplow.

Rain else­where meant Bin­field would have fin­ished sec­ond re­gard­less of this re­sult, but they cer­tainly could not have wished for a worse end to the sea­son.

Bat­ting first at Taplow, Bin­field failed to gen­er­ate any mo­men­tum through­out the en­tire in­nings.

Open­ers Sean En­nis (14) and Chris Mor­gan (10) made a steady start, but wick­ets soon tum­bled with Mike Staves’ un­beaten 18 the best any­body could muster as the vis­i­tors were bowled out for just 92.

And Taplow duo Farhaan and Fa­heem Quereshi cruised to the

tar­get on their own to win af­ter 29 overs.

Bin­field end the sea­son in sec­ond spot, 27 points off cham­pi­ons Wrays­bury. The 2nd XI had their game aban­doned against Holy­port in Di­vi­sion 2.

Holy­port bat­ted first, reach­ing 230-8 be­fore declar­ing with Thomas Nower (3-69) and Paul Edg­ing­ton (3-29) the pick of the bowlers.

But be­fore Bin­field could try and chase the to­tal, the heav­ens opened be­fore a ball was bowled in the sec­ond in­nings, mean­ing the points were shared.

As such, Bin­field end the sea­son in third spot in Di­vi­sion 2, 31 points off the top two.
