2nds on brink of title with win at Wardington

Ganti and Rahman partnership deciding factor to edge 2nds close to league success

Division 4
Wardington v Willoughby A

Wardington 183 all out
Willoughby A 184 for 4

Willoughby A won by 6 wickets.

There was joy for Willoughby’s second team as they all but wrapped up the league title thanks to a fine performance with the bat away at Wardington.

Batting first, Wardington set the visitors a testing target making 183 all out; Watts top scoring with 65 as Kamesh Ganti (3 for 35), Fergus Derry (2 for 22) and John Gregson (2 for 29) leading the bowling stats.

That total looked even more distant for the visitors with a wicket falling in the first over, however Ganti and skipper Badj Rahman rectified matters in some style posting a record partnership for the season for the team of 158. Ganti fell agonisingly just short of a century making 95 with Rahman choosing a very apt time to make a deserved and overdue half century with 54.

Despite both falling with the target in sight, Willoughby reached 184 for 4 with four overs to spare to put them on the threshold of the Division 4 league title.
