Bessborough end losing streak
6:30pm Friday 9th August 2013 in Sport
Bessborough ended their three-match losing streak with a six-wicket victory over S.K.L.P despite only being able to field a ten-man team.
Taking the ball first up Bessborough struggled to contain the opposition batsmen before spinner Mitesh Vyas turned the tide with five vital wickets.
Vyas, featuring for the first time in the first XI, gave away only 28 runs from 14 overs while the leading wicket taker Rohan Karkhanis continued to shine with the ball taking three for 30.
Set a lowly target of 115 to win it was a relatively easy chase as captain Daniel Hawes hit an assured 56 to see him team home within 44 overs having lost just four wickets.
The victory propelled Bessborough up to fifth, 21 points behind leaders M.T.S.S.C, keeping alive their hopes of clinching the Middlesex Championship.
The Seconds fell to a 64-run defeat against Southgate Seconds that kept them rooted to the bottom of Division Three.
Bessborough Thirds earned a draw in Division Four against Southgate Thirds.
The Fourths enjoyed a 40-run victory against North Middlesex Fifths.
