ANOOJ Vadgama fired an unbeaten century as Shenley Village defeated Dunstable II at Lancot Park in Division Three.
Dunstable won the toss and elected to bat first on an overcast afternoon. Opener Gypps (36) and Barker (30) put on a good partnership after losing the early wicket of Skinner (9). When Gypps fell, a major batting collapse took place. Shenley's Lloyd Willingham bowled impressively with figures of 5-51, as did the in-form James Davenall (2-38).
