Leverington 250-5 beat Little Downham 141-9 by 109 runs

The visitors won the toss and inserted Leverington into bat hoping the overhead conditions would outweigh the flat track and it looked initially a good choice when removing opener Reid without score.

Gilbert (142 including 23 fours and two sixes), Dod (13) and Peter Scott (40) took the attack to the visitors for 25 overs.

Gilbert brought up his maiden century in the 28th over. Buttriss added a further 16 off the last over.

Wickets went to Buttriss (2-34), Gill (3-17) and Barnard (3-32).
