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.
