Woodford Green maintained their hold on fourth place in Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Three despite being held to a draw by Epping.

Captain Hamaad Sayyed (22) chose to bat after winning the toss and put on 82 for the first wicket with Hussnain Kazmi, who hit two sixes and four fours in his 43 off 49 balls.

The pair fell in quick succession, but Anthony Palmer put on 88 for the fourth wicket with Jawwad Hussain, hitting two sixes and 10 fours in his 85 off 79 balls.

Hussain finished unbeaten on 48 from 54 deliveries, after hitting five boundaries, as Green declared on 247-6 in the 46th over.

And they saw Mohammed Hasan make early inroads into the Epping batting to reduce the hosts to 55-6, claiming 6-42 from his 16 overs, as opener Ramiz Miah held firm at the other end.

Miah eventually got support from Vaibhav Gadhvi, sharing 71 for the seven wicket, but fell nine runs short of a century to Paul Richardson (2-17) as Epping dug in for a draw and closed on 139-8.
