ONE of Knebworth Park's highest opening partnerships of the campaign saw them romp to victory in their final match of the season.

Sanjay Chandarana and Chris Johnson shared a massive century stand in a friendly against Harrow Wayfarers in the kind of sunny weather that has been missing all summer.

Chandarana, with an unbeaten 113, and Johnson, who hit his second successive half-century with 59, added 149 for the first wicket as the Park rattled up 223-3 in 40 overs.

When stand-in wicketkeeper Michael Fisher snapped up the first wicket off Mark Taylor, the visitors were struggling in the run chase. Taylor eventually took 2-33.

A brilliant catch by Ross Courtney of Rischi Chandarana (1-36) snapped up the crucial wicket of Fernando.

Joe Elliott also claimed 2-20 for the Old Knebworth Lane club.

Mark Folwell then ripped the guts out of the Harrow innings with 4-33.

His variation of spin and seam helped bowl Harrow out for 144 with almost 10 overs to spare.
