League Leaders Totton & Eling suffered a 58 run defeat away to Liphook & Ripsley, thanks largely to an outstanding display with bat and ball by Suman Ganguly. It was the only match they had not won this season

Electing to bat, a Liphook lost Harry Munt for 7 before Rob Nicklin 38 and Ganguly 100 put on a commanding partnership of 143. Nicklin showed exceptional application whilst Ganguly dispatched the ball to all corners of the ground. His ton, including 10 fours and 5 maximums, was completed in 101 mins and 104 balls before being trapped lbw by Brighton Mugochi 2-36.

George Neave chipped in with a brief 17. It was then left to Jonny Pryce with a 6 boundary 41 to hold the Liphook innings together until his dismissal in the final over. The Ripsley Park outfit closed on 254-7.

Ganguly opened the bowling for the home side and soon destroyed the Totton top order, trapping lbw both the experienced Jimmy Taylor 0 and Owen Morris 2. He also had Dimitri Adams caught behind by Munt for 20. Totton 63-3.

Bothwell Chapungu 36, Brighton Mugochi 37 and Ollie Thomas 35 all gave hope for a Totton revival but as each got on top another wicket fell. Dave Elliott 2-23, Daniel Harvey 2-40, Sam Harvey 1-17, Rob Nicklin 1-20 and Chaz Janczur 1-52 shared the spoils to leave the visitors all out for 200 in the 47th over. Spirits were deservedly high in the home dressing room.
