Cricket: Jalill propels Cowdrey to easy win over lowly Gore Court
14th August 2019
Gore Court 67 lost to Cowdrey 69 for 0 by 10 wkts
COWDREY followed up their comprehensive victory over Leeds & Broomfield with another powerful win against Kent League Division Three’s bottom side Gore Court.
Ryan Addison won the toss and asked the visitors to bat first, then immediately struck with the first ball of the match as he bounced out Muhammad Asghar.
A partnership then developed between Gore Court captain Adam Collins and overseas player Clarence Baird but it was to be their only significant contribution.
The introduction of Minhaj Jalill’s spin induced a collapse with Baird succumbing for 36.
The wicket-keeper was the only Gore Court player to make double figures.
The Sri Lankan overseas player picked up 4 for 11 from his allotted ten overs.
At the other end Nick Farr blew away the lower order with some hostile fast bowling to grab 3 for 4, and Gore Court had been skittled for 67 in 28.3 overs.
Cowdrey’s openers Barney Scott and Jalill reached the target by 4pm, winning by 10 wickets on 69 for 0 after 13 overs.
Jalill made light work of the task, hurrying to 46 not out off 38 balls with six fours and two sixes to complete an excellent all-round performance.
Defeat for Catford Cyphers means the Tonbridge side need one more victory from their last four matches to guarantee they remain in the third division.
Cowdrey now travel to Catford Wanderers on Saturday (August 17).
