Adam Webster leads the way as Foxton Granta defeat Cambridge St Giles
Foxton Granta clinched their second derby success in as many weeks with a six-wicket win over Cambridge St Giles in the Whiting & Partners Cambs & Hunts Premier League, Division One.
St Giles elected to bat first and Vansh Bajaj (19) and Zaheer Hussain (37) helped them make a steady start to 54 for 0, but three quick wickets reduced them to 60 for 3.
Aastish Kean Maharaj (32) and Siddhant Pande (22) took them to 105 for 4, and Krishna Charit (33) arrived to take them on to 149 for 5, but they collapsed to 184 all out.
Lewys Hill took three for 26, and Steven Smith, Henry Campbell and Ernest Pretzlik had two wickets apiece.
Adil Abraham (37) and Adam Webster guided Foxton Granta to 69 for 0, and when Webster departed having made 64 off 54 balls, including eight fours, the score was 133 for 3.
Johnny Atkinson struck 39 not out to see Foxton Granta home with 10 overs to spare, on 188 for 4.
Old Leysians secured a six-wicket win at Stamford Town.
Stamford batted first and were boosted by a stand of 85 between Andrew Hulme (42) and Lewis Spice (53), but struggled to build any partnerships beyond that.
It was Milan Mniszko that then blew apart Stamford’s tail.
He took the last four wickets to fall to finish with four for 17 off 6.4 overs. Adam Newman weighed in with three for 43.
Unbeaten half-centuries from Andrew Bramley (51) and Dante O’Reilly (50) saw Old Leysians home on 182 for 4.
Tom Newman’s century was in vain for Histon in a five-wicket defeat to March Town.
Having chosen to bat, after battling along to 98 for 5, Newman arrived at the crease with some gusto.
In a sixth-wicket partnership with John Turner (31), they put on 128 runs.
Newman was eventually dismissed for 113, off 115 balls.
Histon ended their innings on 257 for 9, but they were unable to fire with the ball as March made 259 for 5, with an over to spare.
