CAMBS LEAGUE: Patel sets Wisbech on the right Parth
Wisbech were the only team to gain a positive result in Cambs Division One yesterday (July 22).
The Fenmen beat Nassington by three wickets at Harecroft Road after receiving a revised target because of rain interruptions.
Conor Craig’s 77 from 57 balls pushed Nassington up to 205 all-out, but that target came down to 166 in 40 overs and Wisbech reached it thanks to Parth Patel’s unbeaten 49.
Jamie Gollands (4-42 & 27) enjoyed a strong all-round day for Wisbech who are third in the table.
Leaders Ketton were 9-0 chasing 168-8 against Waresley when play was abandoned at Pit Lane, while captain Michael Cafferkey (79) and Taylor West (49) both scored well in second-placed Ramsey’s 209 at Histon, but the rain came before the home side could reply.
Chris Ringham picked up five wickets for March in their abandoned game at home to Saffron Walden.
Only one game was completed in Division Two as Great Shelford moved up to fourth place with a win over bottom club Warboys.
