Campsfield Braves v Greater Robbham de Grooters @ Camps Field
Both these teams had enjoyed recent success which had sent them into the title battle with Davistow, and on paper the Campsfield side looked stronger due to their fearsome batting line-up and a Gareth Gooljar who had run rampant with ball earlier on in the season. Though de Grooters got off to a good start with a half-century from Lucas, everything went to pieces as second-change bowler Daniel Smith's medium pace yielded fantastic figures of five for 26. Gooljar once again cleaned up the tail, ending with four for 54. Robbham replied with a Smith of their own, Matt "Beamer" Smith getting a wicket with his very first ball in grade cricket, and amid cloudy skies his bowling figures read 2-0-7-3 just after tea, when the Braves were 28 for 3. However, 47 from Dan Smith and a hundred from Langdon took the match beyond the best efforts of Callum McKern (six for 85), and Gareth Gooljar then tormented the top order with his lovely spell of leg breaks, which yielded five for 56. The target of 44 was easily overcome, and the opening batsman Daniel Smith might have been slightly shocked with his performance: 51 runs @ 25.50, but bowling figures of 24.4-8-45-8.Code:Campsfield: Greater Robbham: DP Smith Lucas +Dubb-Lynch Tariq Singh Sukhvinder Blackman Tebbut Hasabnis MR Smith Langdon Palmer Gooljar Broadbridge Harvey Finnegan Jacklin +Jervis Das Pardhasaradhi Jadeja McKern

Stedingham Jets v Davistow Darters @ Jets Arena
After Gofftown had broken the Darters' spell earlier on in the week, the Jets aimed to push that home and advance further out of the murks down at the bottom of the table. Neither side fielded particularly strong line-ups, but Tharmi Loganathan - who was gifted the new ball after a clear-out with the captain - backed that up with five for 58 as Davistow crashed to a meagre 155. The Jets' batting was not stunning, apart from a glorious 84 from Deodhar; he took on the bowlers, particularly David Comley, who got thumped and ended with 92 conceded runs in 24 overs. Loganathan continued, aiming to defend the 78-run lead, but after getting McDonagh caught behind for a 16-ball duck he was slightly ineffective. Nevertheless, he bowled his heart out, and after 40.3 overs he had completed a 12-wicket-haul in the match. Set a target of 182 to win, the Jets lost Wallis in the opening over to Harry Warwick, but Gaukroger and Deodhar then smacked a 50 stand in 24 minutes. Rain and wickets then halted their progress, and Warwick eventually claimed Deodhar for 61 - and when Hogarth was out to Comley, the Jets still needed 57 for the last five wickets. Comley took one more wicket either side of tea, and the reintroduction of Pradeep brought on the dismissal of Bala (1) and Loganathan (7), which left the Jets with 21 left to get for the last wicket in reasonable batting conditions, and after 15 minutes together Comley gave the Jets the chance they wanted. A simple return catch was floored, Pradeep bowled a wide in the next over, and Gillespie hit a couple of boundaries off Comley to bring himself to 27 not out and the Jets to the target with one wicket to spare.Code:Stedingham: Davistow: Wallis Dawlat Deodhar +McDonagh +Gaukroger Naik Prabhakar Rao Langley Chaudhari Comley Hogarth Ehsan Innes Warwick Gillespie Chapman Bala Cassidy Loganathan Pradeep Pratap Waheed

Nixonstown Foxes v Gofftown Tigers @ CW Oval
Rich Edmunds' pace bowling was simply unplayable today, as the young Reds paceman stamped his credentials by helping the Foxes back into title contention. The first innings saw him remove grade debutant Chris Dwyer for a two-ball duck, along with seven other victims, to end with staggering figures of 21-8-52-8 - the best innings figures thus far in the league. No partnership was worth more than 21 for the Tigers after they were inserted, but the Foxes showed that with care the pitch could be made to work for them. Adhikari was impossible to remove, lasting 391 balls and 480 minutes for 37, while Matt Pitt, Alex Fensome and Jamee Gray enjoyed only brief cameos. Nevertheless, the Foxes ground out 317, and then held plenty of catches as Edmunds reaped another six scalps to end with 14 for 111 in the game. Chris Dwyer threatened to take the game back to the Tigers when he thumped 75 off 42 balls, but a smart stumping by Gray off Fensome took care of him, and Fensome could be pleased with the day's work - three for 69 in a long spell, and then hit 26 not out to finish off the match.Code:Nixonstown: Gofftown: Pitt Courtis Fensome Thampi +Gray +Vaughan Prestwidge Mohammad Adhikari Dwyer Grierson Nash Sanjeet Jamaluddin Eccles Kipling Flanaghan Swann Riaz Hartley Edmunds Masterman

Pickford Panthers v Edfield Seahawks @ Pickford Reserve
A win would see the Seahawks off the bottom place in the league, but with a full-strength Black spin attack of Roberts, Pickup and Benjamin at the other end and a pitch that was known to turn only to Pickford residents, the Panthers went in as overwhelming favourites - despite a worse record in three-day cricket to date than Edfield. However, it was the Seahawks who triumphed in a similarly overwhelming manner. Their much-vaunted batting line-up finally fired, with Barnaby and Herbert putting on 145 for the first wicket, and a crucial 31 not out from Gaurav Nayak helped them past 200. Pickup was frustrated, getting a hat-trick of tailenders towards the end but not showing any of the form he had in the West Indies, while George Roberts' four for 91 were credible figures but could not stop the rot. Gaurav Nayak then took the first three wickets, and though he was his usual expensive self, the wickets were crucial. Matt Smith the elder then sliced through the Panthers' tail, who fell from 149 for 5 to 156, and following on the story repeated itself - though this time Pickup was not out for 4. Nayak got Richings, Bhattacharjee and Hepworth again, Smith broke a threatening partnership between Jacob and Chopra, and the rest of the team folded as the Seahawks didn't even have to bat again.Code:Pickford: Edfield: Richings Barnaby Bhattacharjee Herbert +Hepworth James Jacob Satish Kumar Chopra Galbraith Trafford GN Nayak Benjamin Banik Cockerill MS Smith Bhadauria Whitehead Roberts +Baber Pickup Derick

Garven Island Sharks v Twybridge Titans @ Clowich Stadium
Simon Fitzsimmons was the all-rounder of the match, which should reveal something about the nature of the clash at Clowich. He batted for seemingly an age with Simon Jones, who ground out 66 from 181 balls, while Fitzsimmons gathered 124 runs at the other end and helped his side to 221 for 2. A slight comeback from the bowlers resulted in the last six wickets falling for 60, but by then the Sharks had still managed to make 398 and score full batting points. However, their bowling left something to be desired. Dave Richards bowled tightly but with little effect, and Stephen Burke was the only one to score quickly - when he was out, the Titans withdrew for the draw. Rain ruining some of the second day's play didn't help either; however, the Sharks failed to capitalise on two early run outs, as half-centuries from Bokey and Amresh Kumar ensured that the Titans drew their fourth game of the season and are still unbeaten in the three-day format.Code:Garven Island: Twybridge: Fitzsimmons Joslin Hanbury +Burke Jones Gunn Tariq Bokey Shaukhat Amresh Kumar +Monaghan Buttsworth Richards Naidu Gregory Hale Teague White Bristow Cotterill Stuart Colabawala

Looks like a good day for Colts bowlers, bad day for Colts batsmen at grade level - McKern & Beamer teaming together very nicely, that's great to see.

Great victory for the Jets there. Quality bowling from Tharmi. You should open the bowling all the time. ()
Well that's a pleasing debut! Although a bit miffed about falling 3 runs short of a debut 50!Originally Posted by Samuel_Vimes
good start to my career with figures of 20 1 70 3 2 1
Good Budh, good
Is it whoever finishes on top of the ladder in Grade cricket, or are there finals?
Nice win by the Jets and happy i could contribute, also still no Chris Kalmar in our side. I happy to care the work load all by myself, but i prefer some help.

Why did no Reds play for de Grooters, when we have a bye?

Today's games haven't been simmed yet, that was yesterday's games.Originally Posted by Robertinho
I didn't like the sound of that game seems I was a little expensive although i still picked up 7 wickets for the match. We should have got up though terribly batting 1st innings and disappointing not to get the last wicket to win, however we move on to next round
The plan so far is to have whoever finishes on top. There might be an end of season semi- and final event, but nothing is planned.Originally Posted by vic_orthdox
So close! Good contest.
