OAs edged by Broxbourne

Broxbourne’s top order steered them to a 12-run victory over Old Albanian in Saracens Herts Division One.

Openers Chris Dawson (36) and Alex O’Sullivan (26) gave the hosts an excellent start at Mill Lane, which number three Robin Glassberg (29) built on to put Broxbourne in control of the match.

Gagan Dissanayake scored 27 in the middle order but OA’s bowlers did an excellent job of restricting six batsmen to single figures.

Ashan Ali led the way with four wickets but OAs were unable to take the final wicket which proved costly in the long run.

Opening the reply, Tom Lincoln hit eight fours before bowing out for a run-a-ball 32 after being trapped LBW by Liam Robinson (3-27).

The top order then suffered a collapse leaving as OAs were 55-6 after 16 overs.

Moz Hayat (30) and Alf Rehman (35) set about steadying the ship and with further support from Zahid Karim (18), OAs closed in on the total.
