Peter­bor­ough Town v Bourne, Bret­ton Gate (6.15pm)

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

THESE two teams have won the last three Jaidka Cups be­tween them with tonight’s vis­i­tors to Bret­ton Gate seek­ing a hat-trick of ti­tles.

But­town will start favourites even though their own re­cent record in the Jaidka (the win in 2009 aside) has been poor. They lost in the first round to Wis­bech last sea­son.

Town reached the quar­ter-fi­nals of the Na­tional Twenty/20 Cup last sum­mer and played some fan­tas­tic cricket on the way and a re­peat of that form would be enough against a Bourne side whose seam bowl­ing at­tack is con­sid­er­ably weaker than 12 months ago. Key clash: Lewis Bruce v Pete Mor­gan. There is no classier bats­man on the lo­cal scene than Bruce when he’s in full flow. And he hit prime form for­town and for Cambs over the week­end.

Bourne skip­per Mor­gan can be de­struc­tive on his day and one of the bowlers he will at­tempt to dom­i­nate will be Bruce, an off-spin­ner with an ex­cel­lent limited overs record.

Ver­dict: Town win a close game.
