Leverington’s two in a row

Leverington made it two wins in a row for the first time since the 2011 season against March 3rds by 6 wickets.

Leverington won the toss in CCA Junior League Division 2N, bowled first and made some early inroads into the March line-up.

Orlando Prestidge 4-56 and Ranjit Karavadra 1-16 took the early wickets as 10-man March struggled to 42-4.

A stunning career-best counter attack by Jamie Stimpson (83 from 57 balls) who was well supported by Stuart Fox 22, Ashley Impey 21, Anthony Henson 14 and Matthew Hubbard 12 not out. March scored 182 in only 32 overs.

Leverington started brightly with 30 coming off only five overs.

Glyn Wilson 39 batted well with Karavadra 13 but March had their chances as both players were dropped.

Once Karavadra was run out Leverington needed to steady the ship but when Wilson was out Leverington had to regroup.

Suraji Karavadra 65 and Adam Fairbrother 37 not out put together a partnership of 56 in quick time as Leverington took advantage of a lack of a fifth bowler.
