Wisbech Wildcats and March Crows set up a mouthwatering Twenty20 quarter-final derby after both had comfortable wins in the Jaidka Cup last Wednesday night.

Holders Wisbech CC will continue to lay on the full T20 experience next Wednesday, with barbecue, music, bar, coloured kit and pink balls.

Wildcats were looking to have fight tooth and claw after Yaxley were 98 for 2 at the midway 10-over stage. But Yaxley slumped to 140 and Wisbech won by eight wickets.

Wisbech cruised to 143 for 2 in 12.2 overs with James Williams hitting 20 and Simon Freear 33.

Wisbech captain Alan Burton said: “Sam Albutt gave us a good start, putting a dent in Gary Freear’s car.

“Brad Apted and Lyndon Mallett, in his first game in the first team, bowled well. We showed the depth in our team.”

Steve Seymour produced a Twenty20 masterclass as March Crows beat Peterborough Newflames by seven wickets.

The Aussie hit an unbeaten 81 as victory came up in the 19th over, the visitors having made 133-6.

March captain Chris Ringham said: “We had a lot of people here on Wednesday night, and to get Wisbech in the next round is even better.”
