Bourne and Peterborough Town produced an explosive start to the 2018 Jaidka Cup at Bretton Gate last night (May 16)
Bourne won the T20 contest by nine runs after a match in which 349 runs were scored. The defeat isn’t fatal for the holders though as two teams qualify from a three-team group. Market Deeping enter the competition at Bourne next Wednesday (May 23).
Sam Evison (58), Carl Wilson (37) and Rob Bentley (29) scored the majority of Bourne’s 179-5 with Richard Kendall (3-29) bowling well for Town.
The home side started well in reply with Hassan Azad (41) and David Clarke (32) scoring well, but a superb knock of 61 from Lewis Bruce coudn’t quite make up for a mid-innings wobble. Bruce was caught on the boundary when 12 were needed from the final two balls.
