POYN­TON .................. 118-8 RUN­CORN .................. 119-1

ANOTHER chas­ten­ing de­feat for Poyn­ton saw Run­corn over­haul their mod­est tar­get of 119 in just 17.2 overs.

Run­corn’s South African su­per­star Jar­ryd Phillips pro­duced a blis­ter­ing dis­play of hit­ting, scor­ing 82 not out from 44 de­liv­er­ies with 11 fours and one six, tak­ing his runs to­tal for the sea­son to over 1,000.

Pa­trick Tyrrell’s com­posed 36 not out as­sisted Phillips’ more eye-catch­ing knock, en­sur­ing that the wicket Poyn­ton took off the first ball of the in­nings was noth­ing more than a con­so­la­tion.

With many play­ers un­avail­able for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons, this was al­ways go­ing to be a dif­fi­cult day for Poyn­ton, and the lack of strength in depth was ev­i­dent as they failed to cap­i­talise on a good po­si­tion at 94-2.

Jack Wig­nall tied Poyn­ton down with a tight open­ing spell, but Jake Hares­nape and Damian Stringer were just start­ing to ac­cel­er­ate when wick­ets be­gan to fall.
