Ilford (175-9) lost to Brentwood (179-7) by three wickets

Brentwood held their nerve to win by three wickets at Ilford to move back up to third in the Essex League Premier Division.

The game at Valentines Park was reduced to 45-overs per side after a delayed start due to a wet outfield.

Aaron West won the toss and made Ilford bat first and they were quickly reduced to 28-4 with Stephen Heywood (3-32) running through the top order.

The hosts staged a slight recovery with Essex all-rounder Ashar Zaidi and Aditya Nair joining forces.

After scoring 27 off 43 balls, Zaidi was dismissed by Essex second-team player Rishi Patel, but Ilford continued to build partnerships.

Shane Snater joined Nair at the crease and they put on 49 for the sixth wicket before Ian Belchamber (2-30) had Netherlands international Snater out for 31.

Nair soon followed him back to the pavilion for a fine 54 off 92 balls and Ilford’s tail end helped them go from 140-7 to 175-9 from their 45 overs.

Essex’s Patel opened for Brentwood and dominated a 26-run stand for the first wicket with Guy Balmford, who was out for a second-ball duck off the bowling of Theeban Tavarasa.

Patel continued to find the boundary regularly, but Ilford picked up the wickets of Ben Sach and West to leave the visitors on 89-3.

Just as Patel seemed set for a century, Haaris Ayub (2-23) had the opener caught for an excellent 93 off 101 balls.

Ilford scent blood now and Joe Buttleman (26) and James Redwood (14) were sent back by Zaidi (2-24) and Tavarasa (3-40) respectively.

Tom Oakley and Ash Casey held their nerve though, to see Brentwood home with just 11 balls left at Valentines Park.
