Biggs and Richardson see Horspath home

27 May 2024

Lachlan Biggs and Josh Richardson shared an unbroken century partnership as Horspath made it three wins out of three in Cherwell League Division 1 with a seven-wicket victory at Westbury.
Having produced a fine display to bowl the hosts out for 145 after putting them in to bat, the joint leaders were in early trouble at 38-3.
But then Biggs (46no) and Richardson (44no) put on an undefeated stand of 110 for the fourth wicket as Horspath coasted to 148-3 with a massive 23.1 overs to spare.
They both hit five fours and a six with Biggs taking full advantage of a free hit to smash the ball on to the road outside the ground.
Richardson had earlier polished off Westbury's tail with 3-24 after accurate spells from Jehan Mohammed (2-23), Asad Rafiq (2-30) and skipper Will Eason, who picked up 1-18 from his 10 overs.
The win sets Horspath up for a top-of-the-table clash next Saturday at home to Dinton, the only other side with a 100 per cent record after they beat Didcot by three wickets.
