Peterborough Town and King’s Keys qualify for Jaidka Cup semi-finals, but holders Bourne are in trouble, ton for Hunts Over 50s skipper

Peterborough Town and King’s Keys both qualified for the semi-finals of the Jaidka Cup last night (May 22).

Thursday, 23rd May 2019, 1:26 pm
Bob Milne blasted a ton for Hunts Over 50s against Lincs.

Town beat Nassington by seven wickets at Bretton Gate, while King’s Keys were claiming a shock 50-run win over holders Bourne at Woodlands.

Only one team from three groups qualify for the last four so Bourne are now relying on finishing as the best runner-up to reach the semi-final stage.

Jamie Smith and Karanpal Singh claimed two wickets apiece as Town restricted Nassington to 101-6 in their 100 balls - the Jaidka Cup is copying the rules of the ECB’s ‘The Hundred’ competition - before Chris Milner (42) and Nick Paskins saw the city side home with plenty to spare. Arbas Nawaz (32no) and Hugo Bell (2-32) did best for Nassington.
