Sayer smashes it for Cambridgeshire, Mitchell hammers a career best for Peterborough Town, new leaders in Rutland Division One, Hunts T20 results
Peterborough Town’s Rob Sayer smashed an unbeaten 64 from 27 balls to keep Cambridgeshire’s Unicorns T20 Trophy hopes alive yesterday (May 26).
Sayer’s blast which included sven fours and four sixes delivered a seven-wicket against Norfolk to ensure the two matches between the counties were shared at Sawston & Babraham.
Both teams won a game by seven wickets. Cambs reached a revised target of 132 in 15 overs to win the second game.
Hunts won one and lost one of two low-scoring T20 friendlies against Leicestershire Academy at Ketton.
Grantham are the new leaders of Rutland Division One after seeing off King’s Keys by eight wickets at Woodlands yesterday.
King’s Keys were skitled for just 103.
There was a first win of the season for bottom-placed Peterborough Town who beat Oundle easily thanks mainly to a career best 151 not out from skipper Alex Mitchell. Scott Howard (63) also scored well in the home side’s 313-5 before Oundle were bowled out for 157 in reply.
