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).
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.
Wahid Javed and Mohammed Raheel cracked half centuries for King’s Keys.
Captain Bob Milne claimed a superb ton for Hunts in their big over 50s win over Lincolnshire at Wisbech Town CC yesterday.
Milne (111) and Pete Waughman (56) of Houghton & Wyton put on a ton for the first wicket before Market Deeping’s Dave Gillett struck 78 on debut as Hunts posted 277-4. Lincs were restricted to 169-7 in reply with Ali Anthony of the host club taking 3-32.
