Bowler takes centre stage in Essex League Division Three win

James Duhig produced a superb spell of bowling to help Ardleigh Green to victory at Essex League Division Three rivals Walthamstow.

Green set the home side a target of 193 for victory and they reached 52-1, before Duhig began to run riot.

The right-arm seamer took three wickets in the space of four balls as the home side slumped from 79-5 to 79-9 and eventually finished with 7-50 as Green won by 98 runs.

Captain Chris Cook had chosen to bat after winning the toss but saw Sanjay Dindyal fall cheaply as the visitors slipped to 38-3.

But Cook put on 95 for the fourth wicket with Adam Thain (39), hitting eight fours before falling for a top score of 61.

Tailenders Zunair Jamil and Shawn Harvey both got into double figures in a 24-run stand for the last wicket as Green reached 192 in the 50th over.

And Harvey had early success with the ball in Walthamstow’s reply, before Jamil (2-16) broke a 47-run stand for the second wicket.

Then it was all about Duhig as he ran through the batting order, earning three lbw decisions and seeing wicketkeeper James Lavender take a couple of catches behind the stumps as he wrapped up victory in stunning fashion.
