Essex League Division One clash ends in nine-wicket defeat
Gidea Park & Romford ended up well beaten by Hadleigh in their latest Essex League Division One outing at Gallows Corner.
Put into bat by the visitors, they saw Kasi Hoq and Zisan Abedin (21) made a steady start, before falling in quick succession to make it 41-2.
Captain Jamal Francis followed without scoring and Kafi Khan managed just a single as the hosts found themselves tottering at 46-4.
Mahmudul Hassan (23) and George Rogers (24) offered some middle-order resistance, with Sam Hewitt hitting out late on with six fours in his run-a-ball 25, but Park were all out for 145 in the 47th over.
Hadleigh lost Paul Tibbenham to a run out with only two runs on the board in reply, but it proved academic as they eased to their target with the remaining nine wickets in hand.
Oliver Smith (38 not out) played the support role as Kevin Renecke hit a six and 18 fours in his unbeaten 100, from 78 balls, to see Hadleigh home in comfort in 26 overs.
