Wanstead cricket, 12/13 May

Our man with the elasticated white trousers reports: “The first league games of the season saw promising results for all Wanstead sides with the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 6th teams all victorious and draws for the 2nd and 5th teams. There were standout bowling performances from Alan Lord in the 3rds (5 for 46) and Tariq Zaman (6 for 45) in the 6s. With the bat Ryan Hamill scored 88 in the 2s and Abdul Gour 98 not out for the 4s.

“On Sunday, 47 not out from Kishen Velani helped Wanstead to an eight wicket victory over Woodford Wells in the National Cup whilst the Ladies defeated Old Actonians by 46 runs.”
