Green impresses as Selsted cruise to easy win
SELSTED are one of three teams locked together on 13 points at the top of Division Two after they saw off Yalding with relative ease.
An awesome spell of new ball bowling from Ross Dryburgh (1-23) and Dan Matcham (0-22) reduced Yalding to 45-1 off 18 overs and they just couldn't get any momentum into their innings.
The openers had put in the hard graft before Matt Green (4-25) and Stuart Green (4-21) got into the attack to dismiss Yalding for 119 and earn a bonus point.
John Wright dug in at the top of the order with 15 from 75 balls but Martin Ward and Stuart Green, Selsted's numbers four and five, found scoring easier to come by.

Ward ended up on 32* and Green on 33* as they got home with 6.2 overs to spare for a six-point win.
Saltwood sit in midtable in Division Three as batting troubles hit them against Addington Village.
Barry Wire (37) top-scored in their total of 131 and only Grenville Cartledge really helped him. Extras, with 22, were the second largest contributor.
Steve Johnson (1-9 off five overs) and Barry Wire (1-20 off eight) bowled tightly but they were only really delaying the inevitable as Addington got home with four overs and six wickets in hand.
Dymchurch sit above Saltwood on net runrate but a crushing eight-wicket defeat to Meopham wouldn't have helped that.
S Clancy, with 28, was the only batsman to make double figures and six of them made ducks. Meopham got home with eight overs and 30 overs to spare after Sam Lancaster (1-15) and G Newing (1-11) got scalps.
Unbeaten Elham Valley are sitting pretty in third in Division Four but their latest win was a bit too close for comfort.
They didn't have it all their own way with the bat and only Kavan Risby (67 not out) got them to a defendable total of 133-9.
It meant they missed out on the batting bonus point but it was seven runs too many for Bendenden as the bowling of Risby (2-18) and Ern Marden (3-26) proved too good.
Josh Marden (1-25), Matt Davis (0-20), Craig Taylor (1-30) and Daniel Baker (1-1) were all economical in bowling good areas to keep the pressure on.
Stowting got their first Kent Village League win of the season with an 86-run success over Teston.
All the top order scored runs but it was Alan Crush's 47 not out that lifted them to 202-6 to give them impetus. Craig Harding (34), Cliff Ball (28) and Steve Jackson (25) all chipped in.
The economic Dan Bland (1-19 off nine overs) helped keep the chase in check but it was Jackson (4-28) and Alan Harrison (2-29) who took the wickets to dismiss Teston for 116. Etchinghill set 170 against Harbledown.
