King’s Keys are clos­ing in on a first-ever pro­mo­tion to Rut­land Di­vi­sion One.

The city side are sec­ond in Di­vi­sion Two af­ter a con­vinc­ing 116-run win over Cas­tor at Eas­ton-on-the-Hill last week­end as Shoib Chaudhry con­tin­ued his stran­gle­hold on the vil­lage club.

Ear­lier this sea­son Shaoib re­turned fig­ures of 6.1-5-1-5 against Cas­tor. Last Sun­day he reg­is­tered fig­ures of 6.4-38-5 for a com­bined anal­y­sis of 10-9 from 12.5 overs!

King’s Keys to­talled 173 with Tan­vir Hus­sain match­ing the en­tire Cas­tor team score of 57!

“We’re play­ing so well at the mo­ment,” Chaudhry said. “We’re mak­ing a big push for pro­mo­tion.”

King’s Keys are at Uff­in­g­ton this Sun­day when lead­ers March Town host Burgh­ley Park and third-placed Wel­don travel to Cas­tor.

King’s Keys are also chas­ing pro­mo­tion from Hunts Di­vi­sion Four.

Last Satur­day they conced- ed 292-5 at Ick­well sec­onds, but still won on run rate af­ter reach­ing 235-3 from just 27 overs be­fore the rain came.

Ba­sit Ali cracked an unbbeaten ton in that game.

Wis­bech su­per­star Gary Freear passed 1,000 runs for the Cambs Di­vi­sion One sea­son dur­ing an in­nings of 46 in a 23-run win over St Ives.

Freear reached the mile­stone in just his 15th in­nings. He’s av­er­ag­ing over 80.

James Wil­liams (60) and Josh Bow­ers (56) both outscored Freear for a change against Di­vi­sion One’s bot­tom club.

Third-placed Wis­bech travel to sec­ond-placed Ramsey this Satur­day (12.30pm) with the hosts buoy­ant af­ter end­ing the per­fect sea­son of lead­ers Ket­ton in dra­matic fash­ion last week­end.

The Rams passed Ket­ton’s 258-5 thanks to a Pete Rowe over­throw from the fi­nal ball.

Ramsey reached the last de­liv­ery re­quir­ing two to win. El­liot Caf­fer­key struck the ball straight into the stumps at the bowler’s end and ran a sin­gle as the ball ric­o­cheted to­wards cover.

Caf­fer­key and young Mark Saunders turned for a sec­ond with the ball in Rowe’s hands, but an in­ac­cu­rate throw en­abled them to scramble home for a most un­likely vic­tory.

Ryan Smith (100) and Jor­dan Caf­fer­key (60) put on a cen­tury open­ing stand for Ramsey af­ter Rowe (96) and Ash­ley Rodgers (94) had added 182 for Ket­ton’s first wicket.

Ket­ton still have a hand­some lead at the top ahead of Satur­day’s home match with Nass­ing­ton.

Nass­ing­ton were beaten at Ea­ton So­con by 53 runs last week­end.

Cambs and Bucks played out a bore draw in their Eastern Di­vi­sion Uni­corns Cham­pi­onship match at Che­sham.

Ash­ley Rodgers struck 94 for Ket­ton at Ramsey.
