March 1st Xl v Wisbech
Saturday, June 16


Wickets tumbled yet again at The Avenue on Saturday as the two sides in the Fenland Derby went toe to toe - the 1st XI missing out by a single wicket to Wisbech in a Whitings League Division 1 match that was filled with drama.


Both sides have struggled all season for runs and March highlighted that fact with the scoreboard showing 40-5 soon into the afternoon. Wisbech speed merchant Will Gowler goaded the March batsmen into mistimed hook shots as none of the top five made double figures. The teenager, who lives just five minutes away from the March ground, took four wickets in his first six overs, from which the home side failed to recover.


All that was needed was for spinner Chris Clark to mop up with a 5-25 return - Ben Chapman (19) and Callum Young (18no) the stand-out batsmen for March in their 112 all out total.


Wisbech skipper Gary Freear made top score of the day with 30. Take his runs away and 19 wides and it would have been a different story! Saranga Rajaguru and Andy Wright both claimed three wicket hauls, with Young bagging a brace.


Tense times among the Wisbech section as the lost their ninth wicket two runs short of victory, but yet another wide and a single saw them home.


March 1st XI 112 all out, 33.4 overs (Ben Chapman 19, Callum Young 18no, Chris Clark 5-25, Will Gowler 4-31), Wisbech 1st XI 113-9, 38.5 overs (Gary Frear 30, Saranga Rajaguru 3-27, Andy Wright 3-41, Callum 2-29).


Man of the Match: Callum Young


Skipper's verdict: We got sucked into playing some dreadful shots but salvaged a bit of pride with our bowling performance.



March 1st Xl v Castor
Sunday, June 17


The Sunday 1st XI's promotion chase goes from strength to strength with an emphatic 112-run victory at Castor in Rutland League Division 2.


A quickfire half century from Saranga Rajaguru gave good momentum to the innings, with Spencer Saberton cracking an unbeaten 76 from 67 balls at No8. He struck a total of 13 boundaries, including four 'sixes' as March closed on 225 all out.


That was way too many for the home side, who were dismissed in 20.2 overs for just 113.


Opening bowler Sam Clarke led the way with 3-25 and leg-spinner Geoff Kirby picked up a 3-17 return.


March 1st XI 225 all out, 43.3 overs (Spencer Saberton 76no, Saranga Rajaguru 51, Adam Conyard 37, Brandon Phillips 22), Castor 113 all out, 20.2 overs (Geoff Kirby 3-17, Sam Clarke 3-25, Dan Waltham 2-32).


Man of the Match: Spencer Saberton


Skipper's verdict: Still unbeaten and we're playing confident cricket. We fielded well and took all our catches.
