Westcliff On Sea 121/7 (27.0 overs)
Westcliff won the toss and elected to bowl
Wickford won on a faster scoring rate

Wickford eased to their third Cook Division victory of the season by a faster scoring rate after the rain had brought about an early curtailment at the Patmore Memorial Sports Ground.

Nevertheless, Wickford already looked well on course after Paul Murray’s 106 and 88 from Ronnie McKenna had gone some way toward their competitive post of 275/5 – Gurpreet Singh taking 2/35 for Westcliff.

David Cole claimed 3/12, while Chirag Desai took 2/14 as the Wickford attack put the squeeze on ahead of the showers which duly arrived in the 27th over of the Westcliff innings.

Robert Palmer was unbeaten on 23 but Westcliff lose for the scond time and slip to sixth as a result.

Points: Wickford 20 Westcliff On Sea 1
