Washington secured a dramatic last-gasp tie in a nail-biting finish at Chigwell on Sunday. Chasing 146, Chigwell looked well placed at 108-5 with 18 overs remaining; however, brilliant bowling at the death by Nisar Sheikh (2-16) and Max Murrain (2-19 off 11 overs!) caused panic in the home side’s ranks and the wickets started tumbling! And with 9 down, a suicidal single to Russell Pendry was the wrong option!
Earlier, Wash were indebted to great knocks from Vinay Gupta (32) and Sam Clarke (20) and a wonderful last-wicket partnership between Keith Williams (17) and Mitchell (6 not out) for posting what turned out to be a very competitive total. Luke Mitchell (1-29) and Pendry (2-121) then set the platform for the drama that followed.
