Muz Ali’s men will seek to finish their Premier Division campaign with back-to-back victories

Highgate host Twickenham on Saturday in the Middlesex County League Premier Division eager to end a tough campaign on a high point.

The Shepherd’s Cot club had their relegation confirmed earlier this month, but will look to go out with a win at home to the seventh-placed outfit this weekend.

Last time out, Muz Ali’s men secured an impressive 24-run success at Finchley to seal only their third victory of the campaign.

Zaakir Khawaja was the star of the show for Highgate with a stunning 134 not out off 124 balls.

It enabled the visitors to get up to 258-9 from their 50 overs with Misem Zaidi hitting the next best score of 29.

Finchley gave the chase a good go, but Uzair Amjaid halted their progress with 2-33 off 10 overs.

Malik Saqid (1-41), David Monk (1-45), Billy Blyghton (1-42) and Zaidi (1-23) chipped in with crucial wickets too, yet the hosts looked on course for victory at 190-6 until Craig Gourlay claimed 4-33 to bowl them out for 234.
