SHL Division Eight
Wheathampstead II 156-4 beat Chipperfield 152 by six wickets
Wheathampstead II's completed a well earned victory to consolidate their position in one of the promotion spots in Division Eight.
After Jimmy McEwen's early success Chipperfield's top order batsmen applied themselves to the pace attack.
However, the introduction of the left arm spin of Steve Booth paid huge dividends as Grant and Carson both departed on 26 caught at slip. Although Crompton batted soundly for 50no there was little support as Booth made inroads with a devastating 21-4-49-6 spell.
Chris Dilkes 2-37 and David Dabare 1-12 closed out the innings with Chipperfield all out for 152 in 53 overs.

WCC offered early encouragement to the visitors as two early wickets fell for 15 runs.
Strong batting from Kevin Barrow (53no) and Dabare (36) with some interesting calling and running between the wickets laid down a winning platform.
This opened the way for Booth to pick up the Man of the Match award with an untroubled 32no to seal the win in 33 overs.
