Crawley Eagles 304-3 Eastbourne 2nds 214 all out

A brilliant hat-trick by pace bowler Rilwan Mohamed combined with a superb century by Razlan Razik, who scored 108 off 106 balls, earned Eagles a solid 90-run victory away to Eastbourne.

Having won the toss, the visitors batted and Anjum Zafar (46) and Razlan Razik (108) laid the foundation for a big total.

However Rehan Hasan scored 47 off only 18 balls, which included one over which went for 34 runs (6,6,6,6,4,6) in partnership with Usman Bashir (17) added 62 runs to finish the innings on 304-3 off 45 overs.

Eastbourne’s Jon Purdy (79) and Mark Tubsure (52) top-scored, but with 3-27 from left-arm spinner Wazoomi Wahid and a brilliant hat-trick from left-arm pace bowler Rilwan Mohammad (3-44) helped Eagles bowl out the hosts out for 214.

Eagles will be hoping to carry on this good form on Saturday when they welcome Preston Nomads second XI to Cherry Lane, 12.30pm start.
