Castor delivered a staggering upset in the quarter-finals of the Stamford KO Shield last night (June 24) by bowling Bourne out for just 26!
Bourne, who themselves bowled Alford out for 27 in a Lincs Premier Division match two days before, saw six players dismissed for ducks and were grateful to Matthew Kidd’s modest top score of 12 not out.
Stuart Dockerill did the damage for Castor with a 5-7 burst in four overs.
Earlier Castor had posted 131-6 in their 20 overs.
Bourne have an immediate opportunity for redemption as they are due to host King’s Keys in a delayed Jaidka Cup semi-final tonight (June 25, 6.15pm).
Castor will now play Burghley Park in the semi-finals. Burghley pipped neighbours Stamford Town for the second day in a row, following a three-wicket Rutland Division Two win on Sunday with a five-run T20 success last night.
Market Deeping piled up the highest score of the night, 183-7 against King’s Keys, with Kieran Judd top scoring with 57. King’s Keys finished 37 runs short.
Deeping will play Uppingham in the last four after the latter’s 27-run win at Ufford Park.
Deeping also play Uppingham in the final of the Stamford Charity Cup at Stamford Town on Monday, July 8.
Cambridgeshire lead Norfolk by 154 runs with one wicket remaining in their second innings ahead of the final day of their Unicorns Championship match with Norfolk at March Town CC.
Peterborough Town’s Rob Sayer followed his first innings 75 with 3-63, while clubmate Josh Smith made 31 in Cambs’ second innings of 158-9.
