A batting collapse condemned Brondesbury to a seven-wicket defeat away against Ealing in the Premier Division of the Middlesex County Cricket League.

The visitors seemed to be on course for a defendable total at 76-2, but Ealing’s Chris Peploe (6-20) and Kristain Martin (3-18) then unravelled their innings.

Brondesbury lost their last eight batsmen for just 44 runs – and the hosts easily reached their target of 121 with just three wickets down.

Brondesbury were asked to bat and they initially looked in decent shape. Hugh Gimber made 26 and when his replacement Simon Butler was snared lbw by Peploe, the away team were 76-2.

However, when Peploe removed opener Overy (35) soon afterwards and that sparked a collapse as Chris Blake was caught for three and Martin removed Jordan Bethel (4) and Palash Joshi (9).

Will Vanderspar (23) offered resistance but he fell lbw to Peploe, and Sam Smith (3), Thomas Kopelman (0) and Jamie Odell (0) swiftly followed as Brondesbury were skittled for 120 after 53 overs.

Kopelman ensured Peploe would not be so dangerous with the bat, trapping him leg before for 16, and Odell (1-27) removed his fellow opener Ahmad Elech (15) before Kopelman (2-48) got rid of Luke Stoughton (20) with another lbw decision.

That left Ealing 64-3, but David Holt (43 not out) and Huw Jones (20no) avoided any further drama and took the home side across the line at 121-3 after 22.1 overs.
