Having beaten ELCCC in a friendly earlier in the season, Old Ranwellians went into the match hopeful of another upset to record their first win of the season.

ELCCC won the toss and elected to bat. Initial tight bowling from Ford and Eaton quickly gave way to loose deliveries and wides, which Altaf capitalised on to smash his way to retirement with 52.

Alex Hudson came into the attack for a rare bowl and rewarded his captain with 2-33 off his 3 overs, but more clean hitting from Shakeel (21) and Mohit (33) at the death enabled ELCCC to set an imposing target of 181, for the loss of 5 wickets. Ed Greening claimed 4-0-45-1, and David Field took advantage of a batsman's mix up to claim a birthday run out.

Old Ranwellians set off excellently, and being 46-1 after 4 overs suggested they might be able to make a fist of the run chase.

Alex Hudson (19) had given them their bright start, which Ed Greening (16) continued with a series of uncharacteristic boundaries.

However, with both falling so cheaply their starts were reduced to mere cameos, and no other batsman put in any resistance, the familiar batting collapse set in and Old Ranwellians were all out for 81.

Superb bowling from Altaf (2-0-9-3) set the collapse in motion, and Mohit (his 4 balls claiming 2 wickets for just one run) helped mop up the Old Ranwellians tail.

East London Community are a great team to play against, and always play the game in the right spirit and humour, and are equally gracious in victory and defeat. Old Ranwellians wish them luck for the rest of the season and their quest for the title, of which they are worthy contenders.
