A solid all round team performance took Accrington to a 4 wicket win over East Lancs at Alexandra Meadows.

East Lancs professional Adithya Siriwardana top scored with 58 in his team's 165 all out.

Siriwardana hit one six in his 115 ball knock, adding 50 for the 4th wicket with skipper James Westhead (18).

John Turner also made 17 to pass 6,000 Lancashire League runs, and Dawood Rahman 13 with Mehmood Ahmad (2-9), Jimmy Hayhurst (2-25), professional Jurie Snyman (2-35) and Tom Braysford (2-39) all chipping in with a couple of wickets.

Accrington lost Jon Hayhurst (8), Snyman (10) and George Mills (12) but Emile Haratbar (43) and Ali Hasham (31) put on 60 for the 4th wicket to turn the match Accrington's way.

After Haratbar was run out at 126, Abu Hotiana (2-14) removed Hasham and skipper Graeme Sneddon (7) but Yousuf Ali (11 not out) and Jimmy Hayhurst (4 not out) took Accrington to a first win of the season in the 45th over.
