Epping Cricket Club Lost 70 runs

Match report Essex League Division 2
Walthamstow 211-8 beat Epping 141 by 70 runs

A dominant performance from Walthamstow saw off local rivals Epping.
The home side set up their victory by posting a commanding score of 211-8 on a difficult batting track.
Opener Abdul Mohammed was the lynchpin smashing a match-winning 93 and got good support from number 5 Tim Cartwright who crafted a patient 42.
Epping only had theirselves to blame after dropping Mohammed in single figures and watching in vain as he batted positively on a track that was very hard to bat on against the new ball.
Mohammed rode his luck and somehow continued to smite the ball into the gaps but deserved his luck for his courage as everyone else struggled to cope.
Epping opening bowlers Tim Adams (2 for 56) and Graham Hancock (1 for 25) proved hard to get away and only M Ziauddin (21) looked to be in any sort of comfort before Adams had him caught at slip.
Epping needed to bowl out the home side for below 175 to stand a chance of victory but could not prise out the middle and lower order despite tight bowling from Simon Oliver (3 for 53) and spin from Dan Sibley (2 for 39).
Gary Norris hit 15 and Keith Oram 14 not out to ensure Walthamstow reached the end of their 52 overs with a 200-plus score.
Epping's reply started positively with Dan Sly (25) and skipper Geoff Maynard putting on 33 for the first wicket.
But the writing was soon on the wall for the visitors as Walthamstow opening bowler Dave Burnage got into his stride.
His pacey bouncing deliveries were unplayable with Epping's batsmen helplessly fending off a series of snorting balls to close fielders.
From 33-0 Epping subsided to 67 for 6 with Burnage causing absolute carnage.
The only Epping resistance was offered by Dave Westall (24) and 16-year-old Dean Majeed (27) making his debut for the first team.
But no one could stand in the way of brilliant Burnage who finished with 6 for 48 off 15 devastating overs.
He got good support from G Harris (3 for 30) as the Stow cruised to a 70-run victory.
Epping skipper Geoff Maynard said: "We have absolutely no complaints. We knew 211 was too good a score on a difficult wicket and we got what we deserved.
"Burnage was a class act and simply unplayable at times so Walthamstow thoroughly deserved their win."
