Two widely differing matches in the Essex County Board FE “Chance to Shine” tournament saw Havering Sixth Form and NewVic College emerge as winners at the UEL SportsDock.

Havering faced Leyton Sixth Form, who won the toss and chose to bat first, with Ummar Ibrahim undoubtedly the star of their innings.

After racing away to 25, Ibrahim retired and then returned after Leyton had lost all but one of their wickets, adding 14 more to his tally.

Hassan Ali slogged his way to 22 runs from just eight deliveries for a stunning strike rate of 275, but the rest of the order went cheaply.

Havering’s Jake Southam ran out Sohaib Kayani for three and Arsh Sheikh for a duck, while George Maydell added the run out of Zain Haidrey (11).

But 30 extras, combined with the innings of Ibrahim and Ali, pushed Leyton to a total of 111 all out from their 10 overs.

Rahib Hoque took charge of Havering’s run chase, opening with a score of 26 from 14 balls with one boundary.

Maydell (5) and Southam (7) did not do much to increase their side’s total, but 40 extras, including 31 wides, from Leyton’s bowlers gave Havering a chance.

Kudiwa Kamudyariwa and Tyler Bunn came in and built up a fantastic third-wicket partnership, as Kamudyariwa struck 15 from nine deliveries and Bunn 20 off 12 as each finished with a 166.67 strike rate.

Havering scored three runs off the penultimate delivery to seal a four-wicket victory.

Meanwhile, NewVic had a much less dramatic time of dispatching Barking & Dagenham, winning by 101 runs.

Barking put NewVic into bat and Arafat Bhuiyan set the tone, scoring a quick 11 off just five balls.

The next three batsmen had even greater success, as Shafi Mohammed scored 25 runs with a 250 strike rate, Azlan Bhuiyan impressed with 32 from 14 and hit three fours and Ahsan Muhammad tallied 22 runs, including one four and a six.

A four-minute cameo by Mo Shahed produced nine runs and NewVic reached the end of their overs at 147-3.

Arafat and Azlan Bhuiyan were then the catalysts of a superb performance in the field from NewVic.

Arafat bowled Nasir Mohammed for six, ran out Raj Jogi for a duck and caught Jahangir Rahman, whose 15 was the highest Barking score, off Azlan’s bowling.

Azlan, in addition to the wicket of Rahman which ended the match, had stumped Saad Rashid for a two-ball duck, caught Wali Khan (6) and stumped Shoib Sahaq (1). Barking & Dagenham slumped to 46 all out after hanging on for 7.1 overs as NewVic ended up as dominant winners.
