March Town CC seven points behind Wisbech after win over Ramsey


By Pete Woodhouse


March Town CC are just seven points behind local rivals Wisbech following their Cambs League victory at the weekend.

An unbeaten knock of 33 from Andrew George spared March's blushes at The Avenue in defeating Division One bottom club Ramsey by four wickets just before the rain came down.

George struck his top score in the Whitings League this season, as he and James Hilliard (18 not out) produced a match-winning seventh wicket partnership of 54 runs.

March were in an uncomfortable 79-6 position, with only match sponsor Shardul Brahmbhatt (pictured) looking the part with 36 runs from 32 deliveries.

He, like the rest of the top five batsmen, was caught as the ball spent equally as much time in the air as it did on the deck.

Skipper Tyler Phillips (pictured) started the match in fine style, snapping up a 3-18 return from the start.

Ramsey made a slight recovery before the final seven wickets all fell to spin.

Leading wicket-taker Saranga Rajaguru took 3-15, while off-spinners Ben Pyle (2-7) and Brahmbhatt (2-15) saw the visitors dismissed for 130.

Ramsey 130 all out, 46.5 overs (Saranga Rajaguru 3-15, Ben Pyle 2-7, Shardul Brahmbhatt 2-15).

March 1st XI 133-6, 27 overs (Shardul Brahmbhatt 36, Andrew George 33no, James Hilliard 18no).

March, who are on 199 points and are fifth in the table, have no game on Saturday.
