WRAYSBURY’s Division One title hopes suffered a major blow as they agonisingly lost by one wicket at home to Braywood on Saturday.

The hosts were asked to bat after losing the toss and lost both their openers – Raheel Yasin and the dangerous Jayesh Mohan – for single figures.

Arsalan Yaseen (30) and Naeem Baig (44) rebuilt the innings, but aside from Stefan Grosvenor (41no) and number 10 Iffy Wain (27), the batsmen struggled and Wraysbury could only reach 208-9 in 50 overs, Faizaan Shamsi (3-42) the pick of the attack.

Baig knocked over Prijith Vijayan for a duck as the hosts made a dream start, and the wickets kept coming as captain Andy Prasad (4-60) ran through the middle order.

However, Braywood opener Shahbaz Khan (51) found a willing ally in number eight Nasser Satti (66) and remarkably last man Mohammed Anees made an unbeaten 24 to lead the visitors to a stunning win.

Wraysbury are now 27 points behind leaders Binfield and visit White Waltham on Saturday (1pm).

Bashrat Mahmood cracked 65 for Pinkneys Green as they thrashed Taplow by 129 runs.

Matt Newman claimed 4-78 from his 15 overs, but Taplow conceded 284-9 before the hosts declared after 49 overs.

And they never looked like getting near that total once Jags Dhillon (5-22) destroyed the middle order, Taplow eventually dismissed for 155.

Pinkneys Green visit Littlewick Green on Saturday, while Taplow are at home to Harpsden (both 1pm).

Division Two

A STUNNING knock from Matt Clark helped mid-table Hurley to a 21-run win at Amersham Hill in Division Two.

Batting at number seven, he clubbed an unbeaten 93 from just 70 balls to take his side to 251-7, and with Ian Dawkins (5-53) and Dave Goodman (3-13) bowling well, Amersham were dismissed for 130.

Hurley visit Knotty Green on Saturday (1pm).

Captain Andy Mills top scored with 61, but it was not enough for Taplow 2nds (151) as they lost to Binfield 2nds (152-7) by three wickets.

Deep Singh took 5-39, but Wraysbury 2nds (94) were thumped by 146 runs at Knotty Hill.

Division Four

Pinkneys Green 2nds (127) lost to Holyport (146) by 19 runs, while Hurley 2nds (175-6) drew with Pinner 2nds (247-3) in Division Four.
