Chris Smith stars in Hurlingham stroll

Hurlingham 166 all out (Mumby 3-26, Bridcut 2-30) Jesters 167-2 (Smith 80*) Won by 8 wickets It was all over by tea at Ranelagh Gardens as the Jesters cruised to an eight wicket win. There were three wickets for Nick Mumby and a stylish unbeaten 80 for Chris Smith. Jonny Bridcut's match report reveals all... It was a beautiful day. The stunning pitch at Hurlingham was as flat as ever, with the customary short square boundary towards the shimmering white clubhouse. It was a day pregnant with runs. So the Jesters won the toss and bowled. Our opening attack started strongly with the ball, finding late movement and rare bounce. For every well-placed cover drive across the smooth croquet lawns

Weybridge 131 all out (Mohammed 4-16) Jesters 135-0 (Doward 103*) Won by 10 wickets At 102-1 off 20 overs with two strong batsmen well set, it looked like being a very long, hot day in the field at Weybridge. But a game-changing spell by Adnan Mohammed (4-16 off 8 overs) laid the home side to waste and Nick Mumby (or 'Bambi' as he was named in the Weybridge scorebook!) merrily mopped up the tail. To the shock of all Jesters and the sizeable home crowd, the small target was knocked off inside 20 overs by Ollie Doward, who smashed 103* off 66 balls (16 fours and a six), and Rob Dancey. Captain Hillyard's account follows... The Jesters ran out easy winners against Weybridge CC, cruising to a 10
