Jaidev Pindoria hits first league 200 in club history
History was made on Saturday as Jaidev Pindoria became the first player in Brentham CC history to hit 200 in a Middlesex County Cricket League match.
Jaidev's monster knock of 206 came off just 114 balls with 27 4s and four 6s. The opener shared a partnership of 248 with Jon Mays (75) for the second wicket as Brentham 4s racked up 369-4 off 45 overs against Actonians at William Perkin.
In reply, Actonians reached 213-8 off their alloted 45 overs, Aditya Patel (3-65) the pick of the Brentham bowlers. However, the day belonged to Jaidev.
Up and running with their first win of the season, the 4s are away at Friends United CC tomorrow.
Another centurion on Saturday was Rohit Khullar, the opener's 109 off 118 balls was the backbone of the 1s 228 all-out against Eastcote at Meadvale Road on Saturday.
Captain Tomek Tsang also hit 60 as the 1s asked Eastcote to chase an imposing total.
At 75-2, Eastcote looked well in the game but Pravin Jadhav's introduction changed everything. The spinner, in partnership with Tilan Wijesinghe (2-32), worked his way through the middle and lower order to finish with figures of 5-37 as Eastcote were all out 48 runs short.
The 1s head to Wycombe House this weekend.
The 2s couldn't make it back-to-back wins after letting a promising start slip away at Barnes before going on to lose by 6 wickets.
Captain Saad Rehmann (59) and Anmol Singh (28) took The Trees to 86-0 before the wickets tumbled. It was only a late order partnership between Atif Shah (42) and Vish Patel (23) which rescued the 2s from 111-6 to their final total of 193.
Despite 2-45 from Atif, Barnes were never in trouble in their reply, reaching the required figure with more than 12 overs to spare.
The 2s host Brondesbury in the second tier this weekend.
The 3s suffered a one-wicket defeat away at Hampstead on Saturday, narrowly failing to defend 125 at Regents Park.
On a slow scoring ground, David Hooke (24) was the only batsman to pass 20 as The Trees ground their way to 125 all out in 35 overs.
Aaron Bolger (5-55) then starred with the ball, helping The Trees to chip away at the required wickets. However, 34 down the order from Henry Mills proved the difference as the hosts fell over the line with one wicket to spare.
The 3s are at home to league leaders Acton at William Perkin on Saturday.
Once again, Saturday saw a Brentham 5s team put out for a friendly away at Peppard Stoke Row CC. Brentham batted first with 49 from Zayyaan Butt as well as Chris Whelan's 43 and Simon Price's 42 getting them up to 202/7 in 35 overs.
Imran Raza (2-39), Ranveer Singh (1-32) and George Yates (1-41) took Brentham's wickets but the home side got home with eight balls to spare.
On Sunday, Meet Goswami's 52 was the backbone of the Club XI's successful chase of 230 against Uxbridge at Meadvale Road.
The wickets were shared around in Uxbridge's innings, Pravin (2-32) and Atif (2-43) returning the best figures.
Meet then anchored the reply, alongside contributions from Thirath Goane (36), Ashfaq Ahmed (45), and Henkash Surve (35), as The Trees won with nearly six overs to spare.
