Callum Guest hits century for Sawston & Babraham in draw with Witham
Sawston & Babraham kept their unbeaten form in the Read Brothers East Anglian Premier League with a third draw in a row, this time against Witham.
Cambridgeshire’s white ball captain Callum Guest was the star of the show for the Rams.
He faced 207 balls for an unbeaten 140 not out, which included 15 fours.
Guest made a 132-run stand with Luke Spears (45) for the second wicket, but 160 for 1 quickly became 179 for 4.
They eventually closed their innings on 278 for 6.
With the pitch not offering a great deal of assistance, particularly to the seamers, Witham openers Nick Browne (53) and Michael Godwin put on a partnership to 105 (off 168 balls).
Godwin and Chris Huntington (44) moved things on to 147, and then Huntington and Cody Macdonald took it on to 173 for 3 before Peter Hatzoglou removed both within three balls.
Onke Nyaku then injected some urgency into the run chase with a breezy 29 (from 14 balls).
The Warriors were nicely placed with six wickets in hand and needing 68 from the final 10 overs.
When Nyaku was stumped by Dan Heath with another good ball from George Darlow (two for 89), and Hatzoglou added a third victim seven balls late, it signalled an end to the chase.
James Smith 26 not out (48 balls) and Kaan Hawes (5 no) comfortably saw the innings to a close on 241 for 6.
The Rams still lead the table by 41 points.
