Tage hits third unbeaten century

This Is Nottingham article.

NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND - Nottingham Badshahs II were the latest victims of Tagenarine Chanderpaul, the son of West Indies legend Shivnarine.

The 17-year-old hit his third unbeaten century in a row for Stainsby Hall to inflict defeat on the Notts side in Division Six of the Newark Alliance.

The left-hander took Stainsby to 257-9 off their 40 overs.

In reply for Badshahs, following up his four wickets, Ijaz Mahmood made 37 then Annan Ali (35) batted well.

But 3-32 from Dale Humphreys, 2-12 from Ben Bignall, plus two bonus wickets for Chanderpaul put Stainsby Hall top of the pile.

A strong Notts & Arnold III's beat previous leaders Beeston & Toton Sycamore by six wickets.

Connor Brindley (48) and Craig Harrison (34*) finished the job started by Matthew Brindley's excellent opening spell (2-9) that helped restrict BATS to 131-7.

Sandiacre Town's John Murfin blasted 107 not out to chase down local rivals Heanor Town's 204-6.

Keyworth registered their third win at Kashmir.

After a flurry of early Kashmir wickets, Muhammed Irfan's 77 forced their total up to 165.

Irfan then took three wickets to put Kashmir firmly in charge until No.8 Liam Elliott came in to rescue Keyworth's flagging run chase, blasting 64 not out to get them to their target with an over to spare at 167-8.

Tom Anderson (3-19) and Williams (48*) starred in a first victory of the season for Gedling & Sherwood against West Bridgfordians II (108), while new boys Rainbow have found their feet in Division Five.

An opening stand of 130 in 20 overs from Ejaz Ahmed (69) and Adeel Arshad (77) grasped the initiative against previously unbeaten Gotham.

Paul Blatherwick's productive 17-ball spell of 5-7 curtailed Rainbow's progress, but 236 proved more than enough as Gotham was bowled out for 86.

Ehsan Raja claimed five wickets to cap another fine team performance.

Rainbow have moved second behind their next opponents, Lambley, who came through a stiff test at Sutton Bonington.

Put into bat, Sutton Bonington's top order frustrated the usually potent Lambley attack before debutant Stephen Nunn's assured half-century elevated their total to 166.

Lambley's batsman were up to the extra workload though and Dan Greenalgh (54), Elliot Griffiths (44) and Jake Bircumshaw (39) got them home with ten overs to spare.

Lowdham registered their first win in an exciting finish at high-flying Wilson's (149-6).

The experienced final pair of Bill Austin and Mark Dawn saw them over the line for a welcome win at 150-9.

Wollaton II skipper Joe Fish led from the front making 119 in his side's comfortable 140-run win against Collingham II (106).

Gary Clark (51 & 3-53) proved the only thorn for Wollaton, who had seamer Faisal Ayub (3-5) and spinner Will Tuck (3-9) both turning the screw.

Chilwell (261-9) hammered struggling Burton Joyce (52).

Four wickets apiece for Ishtiaq Ali and Zahid Mahmood meant Burton Joyce were never in the hunt.

All-rounder Ishtiaq had earlier smashed 54, while Ben Folkes and Richard Wilkinson also claimed four wickets for the visitors.

The league's leading wicket taker, Alex Scott, took three more scalps to keep himself and Notts & Arnold II ahead of the pack.

He also hit a brisk 85 in the 55-run win over Belvoir (138) to keep up their 100 per-cent start in Division Four.


Div 6: Heanor Town 204-6 (Alex Reid 77*, Joshua Brear 63) lost to Sandiacre Town IV 206-2 (John Murfin 107*, Ian Murfin 39*, Isaac Smith 3-34); Nottm Badshahs II 134 (Ammad Ali 37, Ijaz Mahmood 35 & 4-55) lost to Stainsby Hall 257-9 (Tagenarine Chanderpaul 106* & 2-20, Matthew Smyth 54, Dale Humphreys 3-32, Ben Bignell 2-12); Notts & Arnold III 133-4 (Connor Brindley 48, Craig Harrison 34*, Matthew Brindley 2-9, Adam Charles 2-14, William Pearson 2-15) bt Beeston & TS 131-7 (Dan Burke 43, Kulwarn Dhariwal 2-19); Thoresby Colliery w/o v Thurgarton II.
