Beaven's spin undermines Sikander-inspired holders

The holders Waltham were eliminated from the Conference Cup, now sponsored by Barbados & Smile Group Travel, in a sensational third-round match at Reigate Priory after Tanweer Sikander, the Essex all-rounder, had done his best to turn the tide almost single-handed.

Sikander helped restrict Priory to 169 with figures of 4-35, and this relatively modest 45-over total probably made Waltham favourites, but all the batsmen apart from Sikander struggled against an attack led by the Berkshire and Unicorns all-rounder Luke Beaven, who opened the bowling with his left-arm spinners.

National Cricket Playing Survey

The National Cricket Playing Survey offers cricketers over the age of 14, at every level the chance to have their say and help improve cricket in their County. Last year more than 21,000 current and former players nationally responded to the survey – the first of its kind ever undertaken – and the feedback has already translated into action at local level. Clubs and Leagues across England and Wales are embracing change and implementing a whole host of innovations including new start times, innovative rule changes and experiments with different formats. From Premier League regular to the occasional, midweek social cricketer every player, spectator and volunteer is being urged to have their say on all aspects of the recreational game.

ECB and its County Cricket Boards are especially keen to hear from South Asian and British Asian cricketers who make up a significant proportion of our overall playing base of nearly one million people. Last year’s research showed that one in three participants in grassroots cricket are from ethnic minorities and we want to make sure your views are fully reflected in our plans to improve the recreational game.

The survey is in English, but is easy to fill in and completing it will give you the chance to win prizes including signed bats, shirts and pairs of tickets to an England v India Royal London One Day International.
