Epping Cricket Club Lost 34 runs

Match report West Essex 170 beat Epping 136 by 34 runs
THE BOWLERS ruled the roost as West Essex scored a 34-run win against Epping.
Home side seamers I Riaz (5 for 61) and Vowles (5 for 41) skittled Epping for just 136 as they failed to chase down a moderate 171 to win.
West Essex's win was especially hard on Epping bowling hero Tim Adams who bowled 24 uninterrupted overs in searing heat to take a career best 9 for 76.
Adams' opening spell was lethal and he ripped out the West Essex upper order.
Epping reduced West Essex to 108 for 8 and an Epping win seemed a certainty.
But lower order resistance came from Omar with 21 and some big-hitting from K.Riaz with 30 not out.
Riaz and N Dial put on nearly 40 for the last wicket and swung the game in West Essex's favour.
Epping got off to a terrible start with both openers going with the score not beyond 20 and the innings subsided to 60 for 5.
Lower order reistance did come from Jacob Ellis with a fine 40 and Alex Merritt with a cultured 25 but they had been left with too much of a mountain to climb.
West Essex skipper Vowles removed Epping hero Adams LBW to complete the victory.
