Midhurst crush Grafham in top-of-the-table clash

By Farnham Herald in Cricket

THE I’Anson Division Four top-of-the-table clash between two unbeaten teams turned out to be somewhat one-sided, with Midhurst beating Grafham & Smithbrook by 10 wickets.

The Midhurst bowling proved too good for Grafham who were dismissed for 118. Opener Adnan Akhbar made 34, but the visitors then collapsed to change-bowlers Sean Kearney (4-23 in 12 overs) and Craig Edwards (4-27 in 9).

Midhurst’s first pair, Simon Lush (52 not out) and Richard Gough (63 not out) made light work of getting the runs and their partnership of 122 completed the job in the 26th over.

In Division Five, Inirban Roy scored 111 not out for Grayswood III who totalled a formidable 254-5, but bottom side Tongham II held out for a defiant draw.
