Peter Younghusband shines in Cambridge victory over Mildenhall in East Anglian Premier League
Peter Younghusband was left seven runs shy of a ton as Cambridge secured a five-wicket win at Mildenhall in the Read Brothers Ltd East Anglian Premier League.
Having waited almost three months for a win, two have come along in successive weeks now for Cambridge.
Mildenhall seemed to be going great guns having elected to bat first, with Joe Reed (70) and Danny Wilson (52) putting on 144 runs for the first wicket.
However, no-one was able to follow in their footsteps as they were stopped on 221 for 8 at the end of their 50 overs.
In reply, the loss of three early wickets left Cambridge on 24 for 3, bringing Rice and Younghusband together at the crease.
When Rice departed for 62, they had put on 149 runs as the score stood at 173 for 4.
Younghusband departed soon after for 93, but Michael Turner’s unbeaten 26, off 16 balls, helped see them home.
Burwell & Exning fell to a 136-run defeat at Horsford.
Jason Reynolds was the pick of the Horsford batsmen with 78 as they reached 265 for 6. Jay Ghelani took three for 55.
Tim Catley made 40 for Burwell & Exning, but they were bowled out
