Big match rained off

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Sport -

THE big match in Rut­land Di­vi­sion One be­tween God­manch­ester and Oun­dle was washed out at half-time.

And reign­ing cham­pi­ons Oun­dle might have been hap­pier about that as the league lead­ers had amassed 235 all out in their 45 overs.

Martin Van Der Merwe and Qadeer Mo­hammed each took three wick­ets for Oun­dle. Both sides picked up 10 points.

And Peter­bor­ough Town’s hopes of clos­ing on the top two were also dashed by a cou­ple of heavy show­ers which was un­for­tu­nate for 17 year-old school­boy Cal­lum French who had claimed his first Town first team half cen­tury.

French made an im­pres­sive 62 as Town posted 179-9 from 40 overs. He and Stu­art Wil­liams (30) res­cued Town from 72-4 af­ter Lewis Bruce had been dis­missed by a bound­ary catch for 32.

Med­bourne were 55-3 when play was fi­nally aban­doned. Skip­per Basharat Hus­sain had bagged all three Med­bourne wick­ets.

Bourne pro­fes­sional Farhad Ma­sood (4-17) was rip­ping through the Wis­bech card when play was halted af­ter just 15 overs at Hare- croft Road with the home side in trou­ble on 40-5.

FOR­MER Peter­bor­ough Town player Alan Bur­ton top scored with 48 as Cambs strug­gled to 217 all out on the first day of their Mi­nor Coun­ties Cham­pi­onship clash with Nor­folk at March.

Cur­rent Town stars Matthew Pate­man (17) and Con­nor Cunningham (15) were both dis­missed cheaply. Nor­folk were 7-0 when play was aban­doned for the day.

The match is due to re­sume at 11am to­day.

MICHEAL Caf­fer­key claimed the first se­nior ton by a Hunts bats­man since 2002, but couldn’t save his side from a seven-wicket friendly de­feat by the Sur­rey Academy at St Ives.

Caf­fer­key bat­ted through­out Hunts’ 50 overs for 123 out of 251-5. His club­mate Tay­lor West also bat­ted well to make his maiden county half cen­tury.

But Sur­rey’s bats­men proved too hot to con­tain and they raced to vic­tory with al­most 12 overs to spare. An­thony Al­leyne scored 116 not out in just 86 balls.
