Have your say

Sarisbury Athletic produced a solid performance in easing to an 89-run win over Hambledon in division one.

Openers Archie Norris (67) and Ricky Rawlins (19)provided the perfect platform with a 57-run first-wicket partnership.

Zanzima Pongolo (three for 23) caused a few problems before Matt Journeaux (79) put the home side back on course with an impressive innings.

Chasing a target of 218 for nine, only Pongolo (53) provided any resistance for the visitors who slumped to a disappointing 129 all out.

It was another disappointing batting performance from Hambledon, who had been bowled out for just 89 the week before at New Milton.

Portsmouth continue to display good form in division two.

They enjoyed a nine-wicket win over Hartley Wintney at St Helens.

Harry Collier (three for 13) was the pick of the bowlers as the visitors were skittled out for 160 runs.

Jack Marston (45 not out), and Rob Jones (70 not out) saw Portsmouth home.

Havant II slipped to a disappointing 86-run defeat at Langley Manor.

Set a target of 241, the visitors were bowled out for 155 in 46 overs.

Waterlooville bounced back to winning ways with an excellent three-wicket win at Basingstoke & North Hants.

After dismissing the homes side for 196, the in-form James Scutt (46), Sam Hillman (45 not out) and skipper Jon Hudson (31) guided the visitors to an impressive victory.

Havant maintained their unbeaten record in the premier division.

They enjoyed a five-wicket win over Hampshire Academy.

Rohan Kandial (five for 58) grabbed a five-wicket haul as the Academy were bowled out for 219 runs.

Harry Hovey (76) and Stuart Ransley (64 not out) came to Havant’s rescue after they were reduced to 38 for three.

Burridge’s premier division clash against Bashley (Rydal) was cancelled after the morning thunderstorms left the ground too wet.

Ventnor against Alton was also another victim of the weather.
