Easy does it: Richmond's Tom Hemingway sends one down in Saturday's dramatic draw with Ealing

First published in Sport

Twickenham go into next week's top of the table clash with Teddington on the Green in good form after a seven wicket Middlesex County League Premier Division win at Brondesbury on Saturday.

Rashid Mullahzadah, who has Middlesex second eleven experience, claimed 6-43 and spinner Parminder Singh 3-22 as Brondesbury were dismissed for 109.

And Carlos Nunes' men needed just 18 overs to secure the win as Eugene Burger (588) hit a second successive half century to lead his side to victory.

The result moved Twickenham up to second in the table after borough rivals Richmond held Ealing to a dramatic winning draw at Old Deer Park.

The visitors plodded to 241 for seven as spinner Tom Hemingway (3-36) and opening bowler Dave Burton (3-71) put the brakes on the former champions.

And Richmond had Alex Griffiths (81*) and Burton (55*) to thank for the four points as their unbeaten 120-run sixth wicket partnership saw the scores finish level.

League leaders Teddington remain top despite a nine wicket thrashing by Hampstead at Bushy Park.

Only James Wade (40) showed any resistance as Mubasher Hassan claimed 6-13 in seven overs to help dismiss the hosts for just 66.

Hampstead had no trouble easing to victory.
