North Middlesex are just off the pace
16 June, 2017
NORTH Middlesex could only pick up a point in their home match against Ealing on Saturday in the Premier Division of the Middlesex County Cricket League – despite the efforts of wicketkeeper Charlie MacLeod.
It was with the bat that MacLeod made his biggest impact on the match as he came in at No 7 to score 46 off 74 balls. His efforts saw the hosts climb to 236-9 off 66 overs. However, it wasn’t enough to earn the lion’s share of the points.
Thomas Plant’s innings of 86 not out, which came off of 128 balls and included 12 fours and a six, saw Ealing collect four-points courtesy of a faster run-rate.
Chris Wakefield also scored 58 runs as they ended play on 226-7 off 54 overs.
Meanwhile Hampstead lost their third game in a row after being beaten by four wickets away at Richmond.
Batting first, Sam Evison top-scored with 69 as Hampstead hit 219-8 off 66 overs.
In reply, Richmond edged to a narrow victory as a final six from James Essex saw them score 224-6 off 52.5 overs.
