An unbeaten 87 from Daniel Skipper helped Rainham overcome Walthamstow in competitive Westley Division clash at Spring Farm Park

Having won the toss, Walthamstow’s Rifan Faiz set the ball rolling with a knock of 94*. However, runs appeared difficult to come by as the visitors – without a win to their name this season – struggled to 220/7.

Biren Patel and Jon O’Neill took two wickets apiece as the hosts’ attack kept Walthamstow in sight. And that proved equally crucial, as Rainham – led by Skipper’s knock – reached their target with fourteen balls to spare.

Rainham captain, O’Neill was with Skipper at the conclusion on 31* – James Fenn, with 3/19, doing his utmost to keep Walthamstow in the contest until the final stages.

Points: Rainham 20 Walthamstow 6
