Promotion drive back on track

Hambledon IIs maintained their promotion drive with a convincing nine wicket victory over Bishops Waltham in CD4S.

Winning the toss on a wet pitch, Bishop's Waltham struggled to come to terms with an impressive bowling attack led by Cam Prentice (1-14 off ten overs) and Will Mann (2-20 off eight).

Wily left arm spinner Mark Le Clercq (4-21) mopped up four of the last five wickets as Bishop's Waltham succumbed to 112 all out in the 42nd over.

Le Clercq (61no) and Jamie Lewis (47) provided a positive 96 run opening partnership as the Dons cruised home just one wicket down in the 27th over.

The win pushed Hambledon up to fifth in the table and made up for their disappointing loss to Bashley last week.
