Mark Wheat bashed 48 for Castor against Burghley Park.

After restricting Nassington to 110-8 in their 20 overs at the Abbey Lawns, in-form Twenty/20 specialist Pete Morgan launched another brutal assault with his bat.

Just 24 hours after smashing 11 sixes (including six in one over) against Uffington in a Stamford Charity Cup match, Morgan hammered six maximums in a 35-ball innings of 67 before he was clean bowled by Will Dyer.

Jack Berry finished 29 not out as victory was completed inside 11 overs.
