Holme have no answer to Javed

BRIDGEHOLME had no answer to Stainland’s Armgihan Javed.

The opening bowler took his second nine-wicket haul in successive performances and crucially got Bridgeholme’s last man with just seven runs required on Saturday.

He proved earlier that he can also hold a bat, making 59 and thumping four sixes in his innings.

He put on 91 for the fifth wicket with Milan Opacic (50 no) as Stainland made 190.

It proved enough with Abid’s 69 helping the visitors fight back from 56 for five.

l BRIDGEHOLME seconds beat Stainland mainly thanks to an unbeaten 92 from D.Fielden.

The home side made 158 for six in reply to the visitors’ total of 154.
