NORTH MAIDS SAVED BY CHRISTIAN

North Maidenhead 2nds notched up their first league win in six games when they defeated neighbours Wooburn Narkovians 2nds by 52 runs in an exciting game. This was in main thanks to a tremendous six wicket haul from 15-year-old pace bowler Christian Pedersen.

North Maids were asked to bat first on a slow, stopping track at Wooburn, and scored a useful 199-9 off 52 overs. In reply the home side reached 127-4, needing 80 off the last 20 overs, but crumbled in the face of a second spell from Pedersen and were rolled over for 147 with four overs remaining.

The visitors runs were shared around, with Jon Peachey (26) and Simon Foster (35) leading the early onslaught, when the pitch was at its most difficult. They shared a partnership of 61, and after Jeremy Kingston (13) blazed a few quick runs, Mo Arshad (48) took the attack to the Wooburn bowlers, being particularly severe on anything on his leg stump. He was joined by skipper Graeme Copas (33), and the pair added 54 in good time as a score of around 220 looked on. However, the Wooburn bowlers refused to give in and skipper Richard Barker (3-41) led a fightback that saw North Maids go from 189-5 with four overs remaining, to 199-9 at the close.

Wooburn's innings came in fits and starts. From 12-1, and struggling against the swing bowling of Andrew Ward (3-34) in particular, Paul Cuthbert (34) and Alan Cuthbert then took the score to 55 from just 11 overs, with the ball flying all over the ground. Two quick wickets stemmed the tide, and with the accurate Phil Hunt plying his trade well, the game appeared to be going the visitors' way.

However, Tabasam (45) proceeded to hit the ball with power, and no little skill, and supported by Barker (21) the game was there for Wooburn to take, needing just four runs an over. An excellent four over spell for one run from Steve Duncombe, and the timely return of Pedersen, changed all that.

The youngster bowled Barker, had Tabasam caught behind and then started to work his way through the rest of the line-up. His second spell of seven overs cost just 15 runs and brought five wickets, just missing out on a hat-trick in the process. He took the final wicket in the 44th over, finishing with 6-34 from 11.2 overs and earning his side a welcome 25 points.
