The Essex County Board’s ‘Chance to Shine’ FE tournament started this week with hard-fought wins for NewVic College and Bsix College at the University of East London.

NewVic played against Leyton Sixth Form, who won the toss and elected to bowl. Hassan Ali took the early wicket of S. Khan, but Joshi (12) and Azian Bhuiyan (17) settled in to build a solid foundation.

A. Khan added a quick 26 with two fours, the highest score for his side, and NewVic made their way to 87-5 from their 10 overs.

Leyton lost Ubbar Ibrahim with the first delivery of their innings, but sloppy bowling from NewVic and a brilliant innings from Zain Haidrey put Leyton back in the match.

Haidrey bashed his way to 35 runs from just 25 balls with one boundary. The NewVic bowling attack gifted their foes 27 extras, including 15 wides.

But Bhuiyan’s three scalps for 22 runs cut the Leyton run chase short as they were bowled all out for 80 runs, eight short of victory with eight balls remaining.

Bsix started off their tournament against George Monoux College and put their opponents in to bat and immediately lost Danial Mahmood for duck.

Hanif Khan was the star of the innings, tallying 22 runs with a strike rate of 200, whilst Sanam Ali added a handy 10-run cameo.

But three run outs and two scalps for Bsix’s Rakib Ullah ended George Monoux’s innings in the eighth over with the score 70 all out.

That looked to be enough as Bsix started their innings 5-2. And after Wafi Hikmat’s dismissal Bsix still needed 49 runs with just two wickets in hand.

But Jahan Zeb and Hassan Shah’s partnership changed the match, as Zeb scored a quick 16 before he was bowled and Shah was not out for the same tally.

George Monoux’s attack bowled 22 wides and Bsix scraped over the line with four balls to spare for a one-wicket win.
