Wisbech Town end Cambs Whitings cricket season in fifth with loss to Ramsey
Wisbech Town have faded as the Whitings Division 1 season closes and on Saturday they finished the campaign by losing to visiting Ramsey by six wickets.
Wisbech finished fifth, 24 points behind March.
Scores: Wisbech won the toss and elected to bat. Wisbech 108 all out (40 overs: Danny Haynes 24, Jonny Garner 43). Ramsey 109-4 (19 overs: Kieran Haynes 2-53, Gary Freear 2-28).
March’s Saranga Rajaguru turned in yet another superb all-round Sunday display but they lost to Peterborough Town by 66 runs.
The Sri Lankan leg-spinner reeled off his third five-wicket haul of the summer in Rutland League Division 1 with a 5-39 return in the visitors’ 246-9 total.
That was after vice-captain Sam Clarke had claimed a wicket in the first over.
The other wickets to fall were shared by teenagers Kian Pooley (2-52) and Harry Gowler (1-35), who both bowled well at this level.
Rajaguru starred after tea, striking eight boundaries in his knock of 63 and sharing in a second wicket stand of 118 with Nathan Oliver, who made 48.
But when they both departed without a further run being scored, March soon found themselves 152-6.
Wicketkeeper Andrew George scored a brisk 22 in the final total of 180.
