Brent's Friends United Cricket Club made it two wins in row - and the second times in two weeks they bowled opposition out in under 60 runs.  

Bessborough CC were in good form coming into this match and won the toss, electing to bat first on a good-looking wicket.

But Friends United’s opening pairing of Nishal Mohane and Hemal Dipu put all hopes of good score to sword for Bessborough.  

Apart from captain Hemen, who scored 20 runs, none of the Bessborough’s batsman got double figures and were bowled out for 48.

Hemal and Nishal took five wickets each, with the help of some wonderful catches by Santosh, Dixit and Dharmesh.
