In the Halifax Cricket League First Division match held at Mount, Gurdev Singh emerged as the standout performer for Shelf Northowram HT, achieving a remarkable career-best figure of 7-24. His brilliant bowling display proved instrumental in restricting Mount to a mere 122 all out after he was brought in as the first change bowler.
Despite Shelf Northowram HT’s victory, they faced a challenging moment as they lost nine wickets in their pursuit of the target, eventually reaching 123-9. Crucial contributions from Daniel Cole (40) and Liam Dimbleby (25) played a significant role in guiding the team over the line from a precarious position of 118-9.
In another fixture, Greetland secured a vital 57-run victory against Great Horton PC, alleviating any worries of relegation. On the other hand, Great Horton PC finds itself 12 points behind the second spot in the league standings. Greetland, playing at home, batted first and managed to post a respectable score of 188-8. In response, Great Horton PC faltered, getting all out for a disappointing 129 runs, leading to a disappointing day for the visiting team.
Unfortunately, the matches scheduled at Clayton (against Warley) and Low Moor HT (against Southowram) had to be abandoned early in the day due to waterlogged grounds, resulting in a missed opportunity for the teams to showcase their skills on the field.
