Jordan Temple of Bourne is bowled during a Jaidka Cup semi-final against Ramsey. He scored a half-century for Bourne on Saturday.

Nassington beat the area’s leading Twenty/20 side in a Stamford Charity Cup semi-final last week (June 12) and they’ve since been boosted by the arrival of Sri Lankan import Mohomad Shifran Muthaliph.

Bourne will start strong favourites on their own Abbey Lawns surface even without in-form Sam Evison who is away on his minor counties debut with Lincolnshire.

There’s also a quarter-final tie tonight when holders Ketton will expect to beat Ufford Park at Pit Lane. King’s Keys await the winners in the semi-final.
