Local rivals celebrate Division Two success
Oakfield Parkonians claimed a comfortable seven-wicket win over Horndon to remain on the heels of Essex League Division Two leaders Belhus.
The visitors chose to bat after winning the toss, but Raghav Chopra had early success with the new ball and Selvam Ramasamy (2-20) also struck.
Eshun Kalley (2-38), Abdul Razzaq (2-31) and captain Jibran Azam (2-38) also nabbed braces as Hornchurch were dismissed for 204 in the 42nd over.
And although Parks lost Azam without scoring, they saw Faisal Bhatti hit 14 fours in his innings of 80, while Taaha Naqvi (33) struck seven boundaries.
Ramya Upadhyay hit three sixes and seven fours in his unbeaten 59, as Paran Kalley (23 not out) helped seal victory in only the 32nd over.
Hainault & Clayhall claimed a 36-run win over Old Southendian to bounce back from their previous week’s disappointment in Essex League Division Two.
Captain Ryan Hurst hit 12 fours in his 70, as Hainault reached 219 in the 46th over.
Mousshin Ismail (29), Rameez Rehman (28) and Irfan Shah (25) also made starts with the bat for the hosts, but Southendian were well placed at 109-2 in reply.
Hurst (4-37) ran through the middle order, though, and Khalil Khan (2-47) also nabbed a brace as the visitors were dismissed for 183 in the 41st over.
