Mark Wheat struck 71 for Castor against Thriplow.

Bandaranaike claimed 8-26 as Grimsby were shot out for 130. It’s believed to be a career best return for the former Nassington star.

Earlier Sam Evison had cracked 81 and Rob Bentley 63 as Bourne had posted 220.

Bourne now sneak above Market Deeping into eighth place after their neighbours were undone by a dominant display by Boston’s overseas star Ishan Jayarathna.

Former Peterborough Town paceman Joe Dawborn took 4-18 for Eaton Socon at Ramsey.

Jayarathna, who was dropped on 0, cracked an unbeaten 148 of Boston’s 230-5 and then bagged 5-35 as Deeping replied with 204 all out. Jamie Morgan made 82 for Deeping.

In Cambs Division One Wisbech seamer Kieran Haynes took 5-38 to set up a nine-wicket win over Godmanchester, one that was completed by an unbroken second wicket stand of 125 between Danny Haynes and Josh Bowers who both finished unbeaten on 63.

But March were crushed by 200 runs at Foxton and Ramsey were seen off by seven wickets by Eaton Socon for whom former Peterborough Town paceman Joe Dawborn took 4-18. Charlie Morrison (54) fought hard for Ramsey who were 16-5 before reaching 144.

Mark Wheat’s 71 was the star turn in Castor’s 83-run win over Thriplow and there was a remarkable game at Ufford Park where the home side were skittled for 93 and yet still beat promotion-chasing St Ives by 43 runs. Joe Corder’s 6-16 helped despatch St Ives for just 50.

Stamford’s game at Cambridge St Giles was halted after just 13 overs because of an unsafe pitch. Stamford were 28-2 at the time.
