Robin Das batted superbly as Wanstead & Snaresbrook maintained their one-point lead over Brentwood at the top of the Gooch Division by beating Shenfield in a rain-affected contest at Chelmsford Road.

Das hit 137 off 104 balls – a knock which included ten 6’s and as many boundaries. Kishen Velani scored 34 – Jack Plom taking 3/25 for the home side.

Joe Ellis-Grewal claimed 4/30, while Jahansher Akbar and Mohammed Fayyaz Khan took two each as the East Londoners remained in control. Skipper, Ollie Ekers reached 39 but the Shenfield response ever really gained enough momentum to threaten Wanstead’s total.

Points: Wanstead & Snaresbrook 20 Shenfield 6
