Reigning champions Wisbech showed no mercy to an understrength Peterborough Town team in a Rutland Division clash yesterday (July 15).
Town had commitments in the National Club KO competition so sent a young team to Harecroft Road where they promptly suffered in the son.
Danny Haynes (96) and Wian Pretorius (61) scored best in Wisbech’s 282-5 before Town were shot out for 56 in just 12 overs and one ball. Brodie Ellis (5-11) did the bulk of the damage in just three overs.
Title favourites Ketton Sports took over at the top of the table with a convincing eight-wicket win at Grantham where Shakaar Mahmood (96 & 4-60) and Pete Rowe (51 & 5-13) were the stars of the show.
King’s Keys won by default after scheduled opponents Weldon failed to raise a side.
