Chester fall two short of win in Widnes draw

By

Widnes 251-9 (55 overs), CBH 250-7 (55 0vers). Match drawn

Chester came agonisingly close to making it five wins on the trot as they were pegged back with a home draw against Widnes.

With Rick Moore's side seemingly in control as Lee Dixon (50) and Lloyd Aspin (34) added 66 for the sixth wicket, the game turned as both went in quick succession with just ten required. Widnes held their nerve and with two needed off the final ball, Alex Nash was caught to secure the draw for the visitors.

It was a strong performance from newly promoted Widnes who having been put into bat, managed 251-9 on a pitch that offered more than a little help for the bowlers. There were runs for James McCoy (41), Chris Kirby (41), Muhammad Bashir (53) and Majid Majeed (61). Legspinner Jack Williams was in the wickets again with a fine 6-67 while Lloyd Aspin took 3-62.

The normal free-scoring Warren Goodwin and Moore found the going challenging against a more than useful opening attack of Aaron Soni (2-51) and Qamir Hafiz (3-63), but Moore dug in for a fine 75.However, even with Chester on 133-1 and Jamie Crawley (45) impressing, there was work to do.

The Dixon/Aspin partnership moved Chester into the driving seat but it all boiled down to a tense final over with Chester kicking themselves for not getting over the line and therefore slipping to second place in the table.
