Gidea Park & Romford Cricket Club Won won by 5 wickets

Match report Ilford were asked to bat first and through Chopra and Diwan got off to a steady start. With a life less wicket and a glass like outfield any margin for error in line or length was punished. Rhett Fielke having to come out the attack mid way through his 8th over with a strained hamstring and Russ Collard came on and was immediately punished for 4. With the ball softening quickly on a hard wicket Waheed Khan was replaced by Andy Churchill. With the pace taken away Park were able to start to take control and with the score on 50 Collard bowled Chopra with one that kept a bit low for 26. Diwan next went next over for 26 lbw to Collard with the score on 53 playing around a straight one. With the bowling now limiting scoring opportunities Collard and Churchill started to take the upper hand and with Chopra Diwan and shortly Kandola all back in the pavillion. Park had to keep their discipline and their fielding stepped up a notch also with Chris Collier taking a fine catch at mid wicket to send back Kandola for 5 off Collard. Next over saw Pathan caught by Collier again at mid wicket to give Collard his 4th wicket for 10 runs from 5 overs.
