Duo take opponents to task

Lewys Hill and Owen Simonsen grabbed four wickets apiece as Cambridge Granta triumphed by nine wickets against Bury St Edmunds in Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League.

Ben Curran (52) and Dominic Manthorpe (37) had taken Bury along to 86 for 1, but they lost the remaining nine wickets for just 50 runs as Granta skittled them out for 136.

And it was the spinners that did the damage, with Hill finishing with four for 36 and Simonsen taking four for 28.

It was then a relatively simple run chase for Granta as Dougie Rice hit 11 fours and one six for a 64-ball 71, and 31 each from Ben Claydon and Michael Pepper saw them to 139 for 1.

Burwell were beaten by 33 runs in their derby match with Mildenhall.

Tyron Koen was the main scourge of Burwell’s bowlers as he made 92 from 88 balls as Mildenhall were bowled out for 212.

There were some handy contributions with the ball for Burwell as Jay Ghelani got four for 43, Sam Rippington took three for 59 and Ben Seabrook snared three for 32.

But Burwell were unable to muster up the runs in reply, losing their first wicket without scoring a run.

Opener Tom Jagot went on to make 32 and Jamie Seabrook hit 49, but they were dismissed for 179. Kyle Morrison, Koen and Matt Allen took three wickets apiece for Mildenhall.
