NCL CRICKET: Heathfield shines with bat and ball to get ONs back on track

Skipper Rob White led the way with the ball, as he claimed four for 35 to help ONs bowl out Brigstock for a modest 166 at Billing Road, with Richard Kaufman snaring three for 48 and Heathfield two for 41.

Opener George Groenland top-scored with 49 for Brigstock, who were at one stage sitting fairly pretty at 87 for two

Heathfield then led from the front with the bat for ONs, carrying his bat for a crucial unbeaten 72 as the ONs recovered from a precarious 115 for five to edge home at 166 for seven.

Action from ONs v Brigstock

Crucial support came from Tom’s brother, William Heathfield, who scored 25, while the man who did the damage with the ball for Brigstock was Taswin Lukas who bagged five for 43.

Saints secured their fourth win in six matches as they dominated Desborough to win by 122 runs, with Mohammed Rizvi the all-round star

Mark Wolstenholme hit 72, Rizvi 53 and Josh Turner 32 as Saints amassed 242 for seven in their 50 overs.

Borough were looking comfortable at 86 for two in reply, but Rizvi then got to work, taking five for 14 from 7.2 overs as the east Northants side collapsed to 120 all out.

Nick Bell was also in the wickets, bagging three for 27.

Horton House are now rock bottom of the table after they were thrashed by 157 runs by Wollaston, who prior to the game were the only team below them.

Matthew Jones hammered 127 not out and Cameron Melly as Wollaston posted 272 for three, and that was far too many for a fragile Horton batting line-up to chase.

Opener Alex Mills did his bit as he made 50, but the other batters to make it to double figures were Will Smith (13) and Williams Knibbs (18) as House were shot out for 118 in 34.5 overs.

Action from ONs v Brigstock

Christoper Perry was the man who proved too hot to table, claiming seven for 19 from nine overs, while Shea Gribben took three for 49.

Brixworth pushed Peterborough close before going down by 25 runs, with the win taking Posh to the top of the table.

Lewis Bruce held Peterborough’s innings together as he made 98 in his side’s 230 all out, with George Napier (4-56) and Harry Penberthy (3-73) the pick of the bowlers.

Brixworth were always in the hunt in reply, but they fell short as they were bowled out for 205 despite the efforts of Jash Udeshi (47) and Henry Timm (42).

Action from ONs v Brigstock

Bruce followed up his big innings with three for 46, while Josh Smith claimed three for 44.

In the other games, Finedon Dolben beat Geddington by seven wickets and Rushden & Higham saw off Oundle by 88 runs.
