HARROW have been sucked into a relegation battle in MCC Division Two following their 106-run defeat to Twickenham at the weekend.
The visitors declared on 229 for eight from 54 overs, four of the wickets being claimed by spin maestro Eranga Mendis for 46.
Harrow felt the target was achievable but those thoughts were soon banished when Mendis fell without score and the usually reliable Tushaar Karia scored only four.
Wickets continued to tumble and at 55 for six, the match was beyond Harrow's reach. Darren Crook (27) and Wasim Aslam (24) tried to hang on for a draw but the side was skittled for 123.
It was a different story for the second XI, who moved into second place in Division Three following stunning bowling against promotion rivals Edmonton.
Batting first, Harrow looked in cruise control with the score on 152 for 2 before pressing the self-destruct button as they crashed to 196 all out. Wasim Hussain (69) and D Morris (54) provided the bulk of the runs but nobody could have envisaged what happened next.
Edmonton were sent packing in 9.4 overs for a paltry 19 runs as Monty Jivraj (5-9) and Victor Yadav (5-4) turned the screw in devastating fashion. Eight of Edmonton's total were extras as Harrow triumphed by a landslide 177 runs.
Meanwhile, Clint Wolverson starred for Harrow thirds in their 61-run win over Hornsey. Chasing Harrow's 144 all out, Hornsey could only manage 83 as Wolverson had a field day, taking seven for 37.
