Sat 30th April 2016
The first-team made it two wins out of two in Division One of the Northamptonshire League with a Tim Robinson-inspired victory over Overstone Park. An amazing innings from opener Robinson set Isham on their way to four-wicket success - although in true form it didn’t come without a little wobble.His 129 at the top of the order came from only 57 balls and contained 10 fours and 11 sixes. It was a brutal demolition job on the Overstone bowlers that came to an end in only the 13th over.But, having been 165-2, Robinson’s dismissal signalled the loss of four wickets for 41 runs.With 44 still needed, it required the steadying hands of debutant Devon Singh-Parhar and Ryan Conyard to see the club home.Conyard ended unbeaten on 18 while Singh-Parhar’s crucial 24 not out came from 59 balls - two more than Robinson’s earlier effort.The New Zealander had earlier marked his first appearance for the club by taking 3-71 in 15 overs as Overstone reached 249-7 in their 50 overs.
To make it a double celebration, the Zingari also claimed victory.They restricted Irthlingborough 3rd to 136-5 in 40 overs with Virat Patel picking up 5-0-18-3.A two-wicket success was secured with seven balls remaining thanks to 54 not out from Viral Shah. The 2nd XI had a week off with no fixture.
Devon (21) is a upcoming first grade seam bowling all rounder currently playing for Hamilton Star University CC senior 1st XI.
Devon has been a regular in the 1st XI since 2014 and has cemented his place as a new ball bowler in the Hamilton Club Cricket Competition. Devon has been in the top 10 leading wicket takers in the whole competition the past 3 seasons and has been in the top 20 in terms of batting average. He was also involved in the New Zealand pink ball warm up matches in 2015 with current first class players.
With plenty of trophys also to boast about he would be a great aquisition for any club along with him being on the fringes of Northern Districts first class set up.
We wish him all the best for the season.
