Worlington were unable to make it three wins on the bounce as Wivenhoe kept up their 100 percent record in Division One on Saturday.

After going into bat first, the Worlington top order all made useful contributions with Chris Baugh (57), Richard Ford (49) and Jimmy Watson (36) helping the hosts reach a strong score of 162-3.

However the Wivenhoe possess some of the best slow bowlers in the division and soon brought things back under their control, as four wickets from Harry Burnett (4-36) saw Worlington bowled all out for 216 runs.

The Wivenhoe openers made a confident start to the run chase, with Jordan Elliot making the most of his reprieve after being dropped early on to share a partnership of 147 with Matt Durrell.

Elliot (101) eventually departed, but not before he had scored a brisk century which was followed shortly after by the run out of overseas player Dean Robinson (two).

Durrell was joined by Ryan Vickery and the pair took Wivenhoe to the brink of victory, and although Vickery (31) was dismissed, Wivenhoe were already level.

And it was left to Durrell (77 not out) to hit the winning run to clinch a seven wicket win for the Essex side.
