Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Three rivals Ardleigh Green, Old Brentwoods and Woodford Green all celebrated wins in their latest outings.

Ardleigh Green chose to bat first against Westcliff at Chalkwell Park, with Paul Hurworth (69) top scoring in their 226.

Choudhry Mahboob (31), Chris Cook (23) and Adam Thain (23) also made starts for the visitors, but Westcliff were always in the hunt in reply.

Captain Lloyd Edwards (4-55) proved the pick of Ardleigh Green’s bowling, with Zunair Jamil (3-36) helping to secure a six-run win in a tense finish.

Old Brentwoods put hosts Basildon into bat at Mopsies Park and saw Arsalan Khan (3-12), captain Baber Choudhary (3-34) and Ishaq Khan (2-37) combine with the ball to dismiss them for 148.

Nazim Hussain (23) and Choudhary (24) made starts in reply, with Khalid Sarwar hitting an unbeaten 50 from 53 balls, with a six and seven fours, to seal a six-wicket win in only the 22nd over of their reply.

It was a similar story for Woodford Green, who dismissed Epping for 162 in 45 overs after the hosts chose to bat.

Zubair Bhatti (3-22), Amrit Ryatt (3-27) and Hussnain Kazmi (2-51) had most success with the ball for Woodford Green, who lost captain Hamaad Sayyed cheaply in reply.

Kazmi hit three sixes and 10 fours in his 69 from just 47 balls, putting on 87 with Anthony Palmer, who was unbeaten on 56 from just 44 deliveries after hitting two sixes and seven fours as the visitors secured an eight-wicket win in the 21st over.
