Unbeaten knock seals East Anglian Premier League victory
Paul Summerskill helped guide Burwell to a seven-wicket win over Norwich on the Duckworth Lewis method in the Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League.
Norwich won the toss and elected to bat, and had three players make promising starts, although they could not build on them, as William O’Donnell (56), Ashley Watson (40) and Andrew McGeorge (49 not out) helped Norwich to 221 for 9.
Sam Rippington was the pick of the Burwell bowlers with three for 40, while Joshua Vowden and Jay Ghelani got two wickets apiece.
In a weather interrupted reply, captain Joe Tetley made 51 for Burwell, and Summerskill’s unbeaten 65 and Ben Seabrook’s knock of 38 not out saw Burwell to 193 for 3 for the win.
Cambridge Granta fell to a 67-run defeat to reigning champions Swardeston.
Jason Reynolds led the way for Swardeston with 53 as the hosts accrued 243 for 8, including 27 off 19 balls for No 9 Marj Thomas.
Henry Campbell was the pick of the Granta bowlers with three for 26.
Captain Johnny Atkinson led Granta’s run chase with 51, but he lacked support as Granta suffered their second defeat of the campaign, being bowled out for 176.
Great Shelford had a day to forget as they were beaten by 20 runs by Huntingdon & District in Whiting & Partners Cambs & Hunts Premier League, Division Two.
Mark Milne was a menace to the Huntingdon batsmen, taking three early wickets to leave them on 17 for 4.
But Graham Hudson and Graham Caddy rallied the visitors’ innings to help them to 68 for 7.
However, Matthew Chave cleaned up the tail to finish with three for nine and Milne had four for 21 as Huntingdon were dismissed for 88.
Great Shelford could offer nothing in reply though with only Dan Heath reaching double figures (10) as they were dismissed for 68.
