Ruthless Thompson sees off Walton

WALTON ON THAMES VS OLD WHITGIFTIANS
TRAVELBAG SURREY CHAMPIONSHIP DIVISION ONE
SATURDAY 6 MAY 2017

WALTON ON THAMES 138, OLD WHITGIFTIANS 141/1
OLD WHITGIFTIANS WON BY 9 WICKETS

The OWs started the league campaign with a clinical win against Walton on Thames.

The game finished with some fantastic batting from Chris Thompson and Talha Mumtaz, who added 121 for the 1st wicket in 16 overs, after the OW bowlers tore through the Walton batting line up who lost 4-14 in one spell followed by 5-20 at the end of their innings.

The pitch had a good covering of grass so Mo Raza had no hesitation in opting to bowl first after winning the toss. The OW bowlers struggled initially to find their line and length, but the Walton batsmen failed to capitalise on this. Dan Kenton (2-21) made the first breakthrough, dismissing Bilal Chohan for 3, caught at backward point. Harry Samuels (34) and JP van Aswegen (28) started to build a promising partnership before Mo Raza dismissed both batsmen to leave Walton 81-3. Joe Murtagh (2-15) pressed home the OWs advantage, taking two further wickets in quick succession before James Madoc-Jones stabilised the Walton innings. Madoc-Jones was eventually caught at slip by Chris Thompson for 12 off Dan Kenton to herald the final collapse of the innings as Harshil Shah (3-13) and Suliman Younas cleaned up the tail.

Chris Thompson and Mumtaz Talha started aggressively, taking 40 runs off the first five overs. Both batsmen punished any bad balls and were treated to a feast by Walton’s rusty bowling. Thompson was the first to reach fifty, off just 36 balls as Walton rotated their bowlers. Eventually, Thompson was trapped lbw by the left arm seam bowling of Matt Nichols for 75 but before Joe Murtagh could face a delivery, Talha finished the innings and reaching a deserved fifty off 58 deliveries.

The OWs face a tough test next week as they play Chipstead at Croham Road who beat Beddington in their first game.
