Middlesex County Cricket League: Division One
Hampstead 192, Stanmore 193-4

HAMPSTEAD slumped to a disappointing six-wicket defeat in their home match against Stanmore on Saturday at Lymington Road.
Having lost the toss, the home side were put in to bat first and they were looking to continue their table topping start to the season.
Opener Brandon Buckley again led by example with a well-crafted knock of 65, while captain Paul Weekes hit 33 not out to give Hampstead 192 off 61 overs before the fall of their final wicket.
In the field Weekes and Sumeet Sharma made determined bids to stifle Stanmore’s reply with two wickets each.
But the visitors held their nerve to record a winning score of 193-4 off 52 overs thanks to an unbeaten 60 from Omar Anwar.

Division Two
South Hampstead 204-1, Barnes 200-9 Dec

OPENER Tim McMahon came within six runs of an impressive century on Saturday as he led South Hampstead to their first win of the season against Barnes.
The home side may have been regretting their decision to put Barnes in to bat first as the visitors set a testing target after declaring on 200-9 off 51 overs.
But McMahon put in a man-of-the-match performance with his unbeaten knock of 94 to lead South Hampstead to a nine-wicket victory.

Division Three
Highgate 225-9 Dec, Enfield 264-9 Dec

HIGHGATE remain top despite being held to a draw against Enfield on Saturday.
Chasing their third successive victory, hosts Highgate started in the field after returning skipper Dave Benton won the toss and put Enfield in to bat.
Craig Gourlay was the pick of the bowlers with 5-71 as the visitors declared on 264-9 from 50 overs.
Highgate’s reply got off to the worst possible start.
Both Jake Sharland and James Warburton fell early prey to the Enfield attack.
But debutant Zach Curtis and Jim Denning gave Highgate a vital platform. In a fluent 100 partnership, the pair hit scores of 60 and 45 respectively. Benton and Freddie Barrass kept the scoreboard moving with knocks of 32 and 27 as Highgate chased victory.
But in the end a required run-rate of at least five an over proved too high for the home side, who were forced to settle for a draw.
