Walheed Hits Maiden Half-Century

Top of the league Kidmore End proved too strong for a below strength 2nd XI on Saturday winning by 7 wickets.

The game started late as most of the Wooburn side were stuck on the Henley Road, although as a consolation they did see the start of Henley\s game while \parked\ outside their ground waiting for the road to clear. However, finally the team arrived and, having won the toss, Angus confidently elected to bat.

Opening pair Derek Milsom & Angus Porter made a steady start and looked comfortable until Angus fell LBW to a ball that just didn\t bounce. The left-arm medium-pace of Emanuel was economical and when he bowled Milsom (18) with a good seaming delivery, Wooburn were struggling at 32-2.

Unfortunately, George Taylor was soon bowled by Green and at 43-3 Wooburn were looking in big trouble. Then Wahleed Hussain joined Rob Smith and the recovery began. Both batsmen looked comfortable and they set about trying to re-build the innings. The bowling was tight, especially from Green, but slowly the score mounted and finally Rob Smith fell LBW for 35 to the persistent Green - a fine partnership of 85 that gave Wooburn some hope of making a decent target to defend.

Wahleed continued to bat well and soon completed his maiden 50 for the club (first of many Wal - well batted!).

Unfortunately, once he was adjudged LBW, the innings rather fell away although a late flurry from Pete Harper and Ben Barker took the score to 169.

After a fine tea, the Kidmore innings got-off to a flying start due to the radar of the Wooburn attack being clearly lost in the confusion of the late arrival of the team.

Angus soon turned to the spin of Pete Harper and Charlie Ashford. Pete trapped Pidgen LBW for Wooburn\s first wicket. Charlie bowled superbly and claimed the wicket of Mohammed, but his control of line & length deserved much more. Infact, it should have been one, two or tree more, but we had better leaf that now.

Rhys Wheeler & Ben Barker also bowled well at the end, with Ben taking the wicket of New to a fine diving catch by Rob Smith.

Overall, in the circumstances, a very creditable performance with the colts showing that they have much to offer in this form of cricket.
