Great Chishill (103-2) beat Littleport (101 all out) by eight wickets

Great Chishill I cruised to an eight-wicket victory against Littleport Town I in the Cheffins CCA Senior League Division Three.

Terry Manning took 3-31 and debutant Chris Allen 2-21 as the visitors were bundled out for just 101 in 39.1 overs.

Harry Picton-Turbervill ensured there were no alarms as he hit a polished 47. Skipper Angus Gent completed the job with an unbeaten 31. In Sunday's Twenty20 match, Great Chishill suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of a talented Sawston II side.

Chishill batted first and probably finished just short of a challenging total at 132-8, with Simon Marks compiling 36no.

Marks then took up the fight with the ball to take 3-26.

However, Bradford's mighty innings of 67 was enough to see his team into the finals day despite Sam Stoop coming back to flatten his stumps in the penultimate over.
