Opener Danny Haynes completed back-to-back half centuries as Wisbech claimed moved into the top half of Cambs Division One with a 117-run win over Waresley at Harecroft Road yesterday (July 28).
Haynes struck 80 of the Wisbech total of 241-9 which was always likely to prove too many for struggling opponents.
Brodie Ellis and Kieran Haynes both took three wickets as Waresley slumped to 124 all out.
Wisbech leap-frogged Ramsey into sixth place. The Rams lost by 79 runs at home to third-placed Foxton, while March Town were thumped by 146-runs at second-placed Sawston at Barbraham despite a run-a-ball 59 not out from in-form Brandon Phillips.
In Division Two Ufford posted a decent 50-over score of 227 at Blunham, but lost by five wickets after rain reduced the home side’s victory target to 190 in 42 overs.
Castor’s match at Stamford Town was abandoned at half-time after the former’s skipper Reece Smith had cracked 67 of his side’s 179-9.
The Lincs Premier Division games involving Bourne and Market Deeping were both abandoned, irritatingly so in the latter’s case as a thrilling finale was taking place.
Lincoln had been bowled out for 105 and Deeping were 101-9 when the match was washed out!
There had been time for leg-spinner Sachithra Perera to extend his lead at the top of the wicket-taking charts with 5-27, while spin twin Meli Adatia popped up with three wickets.
Adatia was unbeaten on 22 when play was abandoned.
