The teams meet in a Stamford Charity Cup semi-final at Pit Lane and Manzoor will be the star attraction in what should be a classic confrontation.

He smacked 10 sixes last Monday (June 6) when Ketton smashed Stamford in a Stamford KO Shield quarter-final.

The second semi-final of the Charity Cup takes place on Thursday (June 16) when Bourne travel to Barnack.

Bourne also boast a twenty20 brute in captain Pete Morgan who blasted 10 sixes in a 30-ball ton in a Jaidka Cup quarter-final win over Nassington last week.

Peterborough Town have a tough first round tie in the Northants Twenty/20 Cup against Rushton at Bretton Gate tomorrow (June 14). Town dismissed Rushton for 54 in a Northants Premier Division match on Saturday (June 11), but Rushton knocked city side out in the second round of the T20 Cup last season.

It’s unlikely Wednesday’s (June 15) scheduled Jaidka Cup semi-final at the Abbey Lawns will take place as Bourne are still awaiting the winners of the a delayed quarter-final between Oundle and Market Deeping.

That quarter-final tie has still to be re-arranged.
