MILFORD Hall thirds were grateful to the pairing of Tom Webb and Josh Nunan who earned a winning draw at Whitmore Reans on Saturday.
It was Milford who took early control until a Whitmore stand of 100 between Nadeem Zaman (57) and Khalid Ur- Rehman (68no) took the home side to 164-5 at the close of their innings.
Thusitha Dissanayaka was Milford’s leading bowler with 3-24 from his 15 overs, while Tom Davis picked up 2-22.
Milford’s task was not helped by missed catches and rain delays meant that they had just 35 overs to reach their target.
Despite the effort of Ras Gamage (52) they were unable to keep up with the required rate. Wickets fell as the challenge was maintained until Milford decided to shut up shop to rescue the draw on 127-9.
