Evans steers Belmont to comfortable win

Jon Evans took three wickets and smashed an impressive 54 not out to steer Belmont & Edgware CC to an emphatic nine-wicket victory over Bharat Olympians.

Saul Weitzman helped himself to impressive figures of 3-29 as Belmont started off on fire in the field. One wicket apiece from Gideon Restan and Neil Myeroff put them in command.

After two more wickets, courtesy of Richie Wienburg, Evans finished the pick of the Belmont attack with figures of 3-17 to reduce Bharat to 137 all out.

After reaching a 50 partnership for the opening wicket, Belmont skipper Michael Blasebalk was bowled for 15, allowing on-form batsman Simon Durban to join Evans in the middle.

And that was the way it stayed as Durban smashed an unbeaten 42 while Evans completed a man-of-the-match display with a fine half century to round off an easy day’s work on 142-1.

Elsewhere, Ziki Futerman top scored with 30 as Southgate eased to a 54-run victory over Kimpton Cricket Club.

Southgate posted 161-4 before Norman Bean (4-29) and Paul Bean (3-15) helped skittle Kimpton for 107.
