Twickenham Cricket Club officials held crisis talks this week after the club suffered a third successive miserable weekend of league cricket.

The club’s five Saturday teams have secured only one league win between them in 15 attempts so far this term leaving the top three teams bottom of their respective Middlesex County League divisions.

Only Daniel Lezar (57) and Don Manuwelge (43) made progress with the bat as the hosts were all out for 157.

Ben Williams’ 113 helped Teddington recover from 34 for four – chasing North Middlesex’s 241 for six – to secure a one wicket win on the road and bounce back from last week’s high-scoring defeat to Ealing in style.

By contrast, Ben Compton’s 108 was not enough for Richmond as they fell 34-runs short of Ealing’s 265 for seven – built on Mylo Wilkin (71) and Rob White’s (124) 202 second wicket partnership – to leave the hosts still sitting at the top of the table.
