Centurion leads the march to victory

Wicketkeeper Tom Keast and fellow opener Tom Hawley steered Owzat-Cricket Notts Premier League title challengers Cuckney to their fourth win.

They added 182 for the first wicket as third-placed Cuckney successfully chased down Wollaton’s 208 for four, winning in the 40th over of the reply.

Keast struck 17 fours in a fine 110 from 116 balls, while Hawley hit four sixes and eight fours in his 80 not out.

When Keast was dismissed Luke Wood came in and hit an unbeaten 10 from eight balls.

Wollaton’s bowlers had no answer to the home batsmen in a match dominated by the bat.

Earlier Cuckney’s bowlers also found wickets hard to come by, but were able to restrict the flow of runs.

The four wickets they took were shared around by Jack Cattrall, Jonathan Ball, Hawley and Wood.

Elsewhere in the league, leaders Cavaliers and Carrington were held to a draw at Caythorpe.

The home side made 232, being dismissed in the final over, but then reduced the visitors to 193 for nine as the top of the table side hung on.
