HARROW kick started their County League season on Saturday with a solid performance against North Middlesex, picking up 10 points at a damp Payne's Folly.
After winning the toss and asking North Middlesex to bat first, Harrow had an early success with opener Flowers being dismissed without score. The visitors battled back in difficult conditions and, when rain fell, the umpires took the players off for 35 minutes.
The second wicket fell with the score on 58 in the 15th over and, although the majority of the North Middlesex batsmen got a start, they couldn't build a match winning innings with a top score of only 33.
Harrow held seven catches as the visitors lost wickets trying to raise the tempo, while Theo Modeste was the pick of the bowlers with 3-56 from his 18 overs.
Stand-in wicketkeeper Wasim Aslam did a sterling job behind the stumps in difficult circumstances as North Middlesex declared on 182 for nine in the 51st over.
Harrow had to bat in the worst of the conditions, with bad light and drizzle for most of their innings.
Waqas Hussain continued to impress with a good 31 before he was bowled by Sculley. Tushaar Karia, batting at three, also looked the part as he scored 24 without any problems before he was run out.
Dave Walker came in and scored 59, but it was Pritesh Vaghela who saw Harrow home with a quick fire 43, hitting three sixes and two fours as the home side reached their target in 36 overs for the loss of five wickets.
The win moved Harrow into third position in Division Two, and they will look to build on this performance away at Richmond this Saturday.
