Wanstead cricket 13/14 July

Our man who will review decisions (if asked) writes:

“Fives & Heronians Cricket Club, with their heritage as old boys of Wanstead High School, returned to former stamping grounds and proceeded to trample all over Wanstead 6th XI.

Walid Sherzai took five wickets for the 5th XI in a low-scoring win at Basildon.

The 4th team gave best to Chingford despite continued good batting from Giri Rathakrishnan.

Wanstead 3rd XI were simply too strong for Woodford Wells, Mehad Khan bowling 7 overs while taking four wickets for just 7 runs.

A strong adelphian opening attack (Adam and Jack Lord, top,) notwithstanding, the 2nd XI lost to Woodford Wells and are beginning to flirt with relegation.


At Overton Drive on a gorgeous afternoon, despite an accomplished half-century from teenager Jonathan Das, the 1st XI just could not prise victory from Upminster who clung on for a draw.”
