EGCC 2nd XI v Crawley Eagles

East Grinstead lost the toss and bowled first.
Opening spells from R.Liebers and S.Jackson started nicely with Jackson taking an early wicket. Followed up by good spells from C.Harris and N.Rowland with Harris trapping T.Haider lbw after a quick-fire 17. A.Pearse replaced Rowland after 3 overs. Some good batting from R.Hasan and U.Bashir put on a good partnership before two quick wickets from Pearse. R.Trotter replaced Harris and bowled 8 overs. Some more good batting from Crawley eagles as a partnership blossomed between F.Uddin and A.Zafer. F.Uddin went off retired due to the heat and some good lower order work got Crawley Eagles to 211 all out.

Tight opening spells from I.Mehboob and A.Zafer meant L.wills and H.Roberts struggled early on, with L.Wills being trapped LBW. Some more tight bowling from M.Arif and U.Moufeed stemmed the flow of runs as Arif got captain De Souza LBW. F.Uddin continued his excellent day with the bat, bowling 8 over 2-20. H.Roberts batted well for his 72 before being stumped off of Mehboob. Some good lower order hitting from R.Liebers had the Eagles slightly nervous but ultimately some excellent death bowling and smart field placings meant the Eagles left saint hill with a win, restricting East Grinstead to 186-8 off of their 40.
