Promotion-chasing Brentham made the most of the conditions at Shepherd’s Cot

Highgate had a day to forget in the Middlesex County Division Two last weekend on a tricky home wicket.

The Shepherd's Cot club were able to get their clash with promotion rivals Brentham on, but lost a crucial toss.

Put into bat, Highgate were soon in trouble on 24-2, but with Hasnain Ali digging in, they had hope of reaching a competitive total and setting a decent score.

Unfortunately he was out caught and bowled for 16 and Zahid Ali Khan didn't last long on his way to 17, which included two sixes.

Aside from them two, the hosts had very little else to show for their batting efforts and were dismissed for 70 at the end of the 28th over.

It was never likely to be enough to prevent Brentham winning and they clinched the victory in the 16th over for the loss of only three wickets.
