Two centuries for the club – a first for Kunalsingh Raghuwanshi that wasn’t enough for the 2nds to beat Epsom Methodists and then one on Bank Holiday Monday at Chipstead for Lewey Randell that set up a six-wicket victory.
Kunal made 112 and shared in a fourth-wicket stand of 144 with Steve O’Neil Ramsadeo, who made 44 not out, to lay the platform for a total of 204 for 5 from 40 overs. Epsom won with 5.2 overs to spare, though, with a wicket each for Saad, Ambarish, Arif and Theo.
Having conceded 284 for 5, Corinthians appeared second favourites in the ‘time’ game against Chipstead, Coulsdon and Walcountians. But after a watchful start Lew batted as if he had a train to catch – which indeed he did. His first 50 came from 70 balls, the next 50 from 22 and he retired out on 112, having put on 170 for the first wicket with John Stern, whose 45 was his highest of the season.
George Furber (37) ann Brian Clifford (28*) both produced bright and breezy 18-ball innings to see WCCC home with 11 balls to spare.
There was a wicket each for Tom, Steve, Theo, Keith and Prakhar.
