ASHTEAD 77 all out off 23 overs PURLEY 81 for 2 off 15 overs Purley ended their season in some style with an emphatic win over relegated Ashtead at The Ridge on Saturday. Having won the toss Ashtead surprisingly chose to bat first and were soon in deep trouble. Despite the usual favourable batting track, a devastating opening spell of bowling by Wanigaratne and Chaudhry reduced the visitors to 14 for 4 after 7 overs. Ashtead never recovered from these early set-backs and were skittled out for 77. Chaudhry was the pick over the bowlers with season best figures of 6 for 37. Wanigaratne finished with 3 for 24 off his 10 overs. In reply, the early wicket of Windley caught behind for a duck caused a few jitters, but the arrival of the dependable Savion Lara soon allayed any fears of a repeat of the Ashtead innings. Patel and Lara accumulated runs steadily until Patel was also caught behind for 34. At this stage however, the result was never in doubt and in the 15th over with 1 run required Lara signed off his final match with a towering six over long off to seal the win. Savion Lara came to Purley having won a scholarship from Keiron Pollard Academy in Trinidad and proved to be a very popular addition to the Purley set-up. Kieron Pollard, the West Indies all-rounder, has recently established this Academy to give something back to the game by helping aspiring WI cricketers to gain experience of oversease conditions and progress in the game We wish Savion well on his return to Trinidad.
