TWENTY/20: Jaidka Cup to resume, now that the rain has gone
Oundle and Market Deeping clash in a Jaidka Cup quarter final at Milton Road tonight (June 21, 6pm).
A game that was halted after 14 overs a fortnight ago should finally take place now that the rain has gone.
Oundle are understood to have registered Rushton’s overseas player Riyaad Henry in time to play tonight. He made his Oundle debut in a Rutland League match on Sunday (June 19), 24 hours after scoring 58 and taking a wicket in a Northants Premier Division game against his new team-mates.
Oundle’s other Rushton import Andrew Reynoldson is also expected to play. The winners travel to Bourne for a semi-final on a date to be arranged.
Peterborough Town have promoted three second teamers to play in their semi-final at Wisbech tomorrow (June 22). First-team regulars Tim Young, Marcus Howard and Jamie Smith are unavailable so Twenty/20 specialist Richard Kendall, Scott Howard and Daniel Oldham step up.
Wisbech have fitness concerns over star all-rounder Gary Freear who is struggling with a hamstring strain.
On Thursday (June 23) Barnack host Bourne in a Stamford Charity Cup semi-final. The second semi-final between Ketton and Market Deeping has yet to be scheduled so the final, which was due to take place at Stamford Town on Monday, June 27 has been delayed. A new date will be announced when the finalists are known.
Last night’s Stamford KO Shield semi-finals between Ketton and Barnack, and Burghley Park and Ufford Park were both postponed because of rain.
Ketton will now take on Barnack on Monday, June 27, while Burghley and Ufford will meet on Wednesday, June 29. The final of the KO Shield is due to take place on Monday, July 11.
On Friday (June 24) Peterborough Town host Rushton in a delayed Northants Twenty/20 Cup first round match.
Busiest player this week will be Asim Butt who is playing for Cambs today before turning out for Peterborough Town on Wednesday and Friday, either side of a game for Barnack on Thursday!
