Milan Mniszko made Newborough rue the decision to put Old Leysians in to bat by smashing a century in a 101-run win in Whiting & Partners Cambs & Hunts Premier League, Division Three.

Opener Mniszko hit 110 not out off 110 balls, including 13 fours and two sixes, and Andrew Gale added to the total with 71 as Old Leysians closed on 223 for 3. Newborough were then bowled out for 122.

Kishon Williams whacked 86 and Atherton made 53 not out as Foxton, who had won the toss and elected to bat, reached 282 for 6.

Wisbech were not allowed to get started in their reply as they were bowled out for 100.

Atherton took five for 22 off 10 overs, and Tim O’Connell and Ade Westley claimed two wickets apiece.

Burwell & Exning II’s match against Bharat Sports was abandoned as a draw because of the rain.

Aatish Kean Maharaj’s efforts went unrewarded for Cambridge St Giles as they suffered a 73-run defeat to Stamford Town in Division Two.

Maharaj swept through the tail, claiming up the last five wickets to finish with five for 29 as Stamford were bowled out for 179.

Maharaj (33) and David Shaw (31) offered the main resistance in the rain-affected match, with St Giles left shy on 106 for 7 from their reduced overs.

The Sawston & Babraham winning machine kept whirring as they secured a 241-run win over Thriplow in Division One.

In reply, only Alistair Russell reached double figures - 17 - as Thriplow were bowled out for 47. Tim Moses made six for 32 and James Van De Peer took three for six.
