Stand-in captain West steers side to crushing Premier Division win

Brentwood eased to a 10-wicket win over Ilford in their Essex League Premier Division contest at the Old County Ground.

The visitors arrived in good form and captain Shaz Hafeez chose to bat first after winning the toss, but saw Hamza Muhammad fall without scoring to Max Osborne.

Opening partner Saurav Prabhakar was trapped lbw by Thomas Moore, who also sent Mohammad Ahktar packing to leave Ilford 25-3.

But Essex all-rounder Ashar Zaidi steadied the ship with former county staffer Saf Imtiaz, before falling to Charlie Griffiths for 23.

Moore (3-24) claimed his third scalp to make it 67-5, before Ian Belchamber claimed a quick double and Imtiaz fell for 42, caught by James Redwood off Griffiths to leave Ilford 101-8.

Griffiths (3-32) and Belchamber (3-12) had further success as Ilford were dismissed for 112 in the 47th over, with Brentwood racing to their target in reply.

Stand-in captain Aaron West hit 11 fours in his unbeaten 68, from just 54 balls, and had support from Guy Balmford (33 not out) as the home side got home without loss inside 19 overs.
