The sum of the batting and bowling parts combined to give Cambridge II a 143-run win over Wisbech Town in the Whiting & Partners Cambs & Hunts Premier League, Division One.

Cambridge opted to set the total, and Sacha Abbasi (45), Akbar Akhter (44) and Sam Serby (37) helped them accrue 241 for 9. Anthony Palmer took four for 61.

Wisbech were never given the chance to get going in reply, and they were bowled out for just 98.

John Turner took three for 5 off 7.2 overs, and Theodore Aubrey and Kushaal Kumar got two wickets apiece.

Saranga Rajaguru was the scourge of Foxton as March Town clinched
a 90-run victory.

Having won the toss and elected to bat, Rajaguru struck 141 off 145 balls as March reached 290 for 8.

Jason Coleman (three for 52) and Craig Park (three for 63) were the pick of the Foxton bowlers.

Park was also the leading batsman, with 54, but the support was somewhat lacking as Foxton were stopped on 200 for 8 at the end of their innings.

Thriplow’s batting frailties proved costly as they suffered a four-wicket defeat to Eaton Socon, who closed the gap on leaders Sawston & Babraham.

Thriplow chose to bat first, but only Will Routledge (29) and Freddie Preston (12) got into double figures as they were dismissed for 116.

Jonathon Carpenter led the way for Eaton Socon with an unbeaten 41 as they reached 117 for 6, with two wickets apiece from Richie Turner, Dan Tinkler and Thomas Anderson.

Burwell & Exning II were unable to get their batting into gear as they suffered a 104-run defeat to AK XI in Division Three.

Having won the toss and elected to field, they did well to reduce AK XI to 84 for 5 at one point.

But Mohammed Nadeem Zahid struck 54 to see them rally to 218 before being bowled out.

Simon Allen took three for 36 and Matthew Lister claimed three for 24.

However, the best Burwell & Exning could muster in reply was 32 from Oakley Colby as they were bowled out for just 114.
