Valentines Park outfit won by four wickets away from home

Theeban Tavarasa praised Hamza Muhammad after his knock of 66 helped Ilford win by four wickets at Hornchurch in the Shepherd Neame Essex League Premier Division.

After losing the toss, the Valentines Park outfit were put into the field away from home and would no doubt have been frustrated to see the hosts make a good start, reaching 70 without loss.

However, Ilford were able to dismiss Hornchurch for 210, with three wickets apiece for Harsh Kumar (3-14) and Shane Snater (3-41).

The Valentines Park outfit got off to a sluggish start in reply and were 18-2 at one stage.

However, half-centuries from both Muhammad and Saf Imtiaz (53) set Ilford back on course for the win.

And Tavarasa believes the victory was made all the sweeter given Ilford were without one of their key players in Ashar Zaidi.

“It was a good win for us, especially given we were without Ashar and Hornchurch were at full strength,” said Tavarasa.

“Hornchurch started strongly and I thought they would maybe go on to get 270-280, so to bowl them out for 210 was pleasing.

“It was a good wicket to bat on, but we were in a bit of trouble and Hamza batted brilliantly to get us out of a difficult situation.”
