Aylesbury travelled to Downley seconds for a top of the table clash in the Mid Bucks League Division Two.

Downley won the toss and put Aylesbury into bat on a decent pitch, with the occasional ball showing variable bounce the batsmen needed to be watchful.

Aylesbury started in the worst possible way losing a wicket before a run was scored.

The innings was rebuilt by Paul Cherry (29) and Philip Thurairrajah (72) putting on 90 for the second thanks to some excellent strokeplay with Phillip taking the attack to the opposition.

With loss of Cherry Aylesbury suffered a mini collapse before Annis (48) and Muhaib (18 not out) showed the way with Town posting 207-7 in their 40 overs.

In reply, Downley seconds struggled due to the loss of early wickets thanks to openers Waheed (4-19) and Farooq (1-30) before Annis (3-16) which allowed young debutant Bilal to bowl and take (1-20) showing older brother Muhaib 1-15 how its done.

Aylesbury finally bowled out Downley out for 103 to secure the victory.
