A super spell from Joe Bracey helped Beaconsfield to defeat hosts Reading by 32 runs in a low-scoring match on Saturday and stay second in Division 2B of the Thames Valley League.


On a used pitch conducive to spin, Bracey returned 6-51 and together with fellow off-spinner Zia Ashraf (4-31) saw Beaconsfield to victory.
Choosing to bat first, Beaconsfield struggled in the conditions and were all out for 137 in 49.5 overs. Ashraf and Nilesh Odedra were joint top scorers with 35 as Reading spinner Khalid Malik took 7-46 in 20.5 overs.
A Beaconsfield win looked unlikely but Bracey and Ashraf proved too good and bowled the hosts out for 105 in 30.2 overs.
This Saturday Beaconsfield host leaders Hurst in a top of the table clash.
