Shepherd Neame Premier League: week 3 review

Saturday 21st May 2016

Fresh from Kent Spitfires' T20 Blast opening win, Kent all-rounder Fabian Cowdrey took 2/29 and scored a run-a-ball 27 in Lordswood’s home defeat to Bexley.

Amjad Khan’s 2/26 helped restrict Bexley to 197 for seven but Harry Furze’s fine figures of 5/32 off ten overs and two wickets apiece for Jason Benn and Jasdev Bassan sealed a 60-run win.

Sam Weller took 1/36 for newcomers Tenterden who lost at Blackheath after the hosts who recovered from a nightmare start.

Weller and Tom Richards (3/42) combined to reduce the National KO Cup champions to 8-3 before unbeaten half-centuries from Dipayan Paul and Warren Lee pushed the total to 225 for five.

Opener Andrew Crawford was the only Tenterden batsman to reach 50 as Jahid Ahmed (5/38) and Dipayan Paul (2/37) bowled fine spells to seal a 25-run victory.

Charlie Hartley took 1/40 and scored 38 for Dartford as they lost to Tunbridge Wells by six wickets at The Nevill Ground.

Howard Powell’s 86 helped the visitors post 225 for seven before Chris Williams’ century and 50 from keeper-batsman Rob Sehmi saw Wells home with 5.5 overs to spare.

Beckenham stay top with a third win from three matches, defeating Bromley by six wickets.
