Oakfield Parkonians saw their promotion hopes in Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Two ended by a heavy defeat at Leigh.

Having chosen to bat first at Chalkwell Park, Parks lost Dhruv Patel with the score on 24 and Aman Ali without scoring soon after.

Selvam Ramasamy (22) fell with the total on 30 and Haris Khan followed for single figures to leave the visitors 37-4.

Paran Kalley was next to be dismissed, with Ubaid Ur Rehman Kiani following him back to the pavilion without any addition to the score.

And captain Dave Rai and Eshun Kalley were both dismissed with the total on 56 to leave Parks eight wickets down.

Paresh Kalley hit out to score 28 off 22 balls, including six fours, but fell to Paul Humphries (3-12), who added the scalp of Abdul Razzaq next ball.

Sean Elliott was the pick of the Leigh bowling with 6-49 as Parks were skittled for 92, but Ramasamy struck before a run had been scored in reply and claimed another victim soon after to leave Leigh 7-2.

Ramasamy added a third wicket, but that was as good as it got for Parks as Jack Wagstaff (31 not out) and Dean Waller (43 not out) shared an unbroken 66 for the fourth wicket to see the hosts reach their target in the 15th over.
