Abergavenny (173) lost to Miskin Manor (221-8) by 48 runs

ABERGAVENNY skipper William Glenn decided his men would field first after winning the toss, but high-flying Miskin were undaunted, their opening pair sharing a stand of 71 before losing the first wicket.

The visitors posted what looked to be a low target, thanks largely to Aber bowler Lewys Wilkes-McCarthy who took 4-41, with Sam Clarke (2-39) and James Francis (1-49) supporting.

But Aber’s reply began badly with both openers dismissed cheaply and after Glenn went for 11, James Francis offered resistance by adding 64 before being run out.

Tom Norton was trapped leg before wicket for 17 and after Joe Harris (37) departed, the remaining five batters managed just 18 between them.

Llandaff (159) lost to Sudbrook (163-4) by 6 wickets

YOUNG bowler Max Warby took 4-43 and Kel Stevens claimed 3-36 to help restrict Llandaff.

Mitchell Slape (2-26) and Dean Wallace (1-29) did the rest to make the run chase a formality as Mathew Kinchin (66) and Gareth Tyler (45no) saw Sudbrook to victory with George Lloyd (13) and Matthew Burton (11no) supporting.

Usk (198-4) beat Newbridge (197-8) by 6 wickets

AFTER restricting the visitors to an achievable total thanks to the efforts of their bowling attack, Usk made light work of the chase thanks to Elliott Doyle’s undefeated 80 and Olly Robson’s 38.

Usk lost Amit Aswani cheaply but Tamoor Zafar (18), Sidarth Remesh (18) and Oscar Watkins (11no) saw them home with one delivery short of four overs remaining.

Zafar (3-31) was Usk’s chief wicket taker with Richard Rees (3-38) not far behind. Ben Jones claimed the remaining wicket for 27.

Usk (345-3) beat Llandaff (72) by 273 runs

OLLY Robson struck an unbeaten 188 from just 159 deliveries o help Usk set a formidable target.

Robson hit 24 boundaries and four maximums with fellow opener Elliot Doyle (42) and Matt Hancock (37) keeping him company.

In reply, Llandaff offered little resistance as Mika Ekstrom (2-22), Ben Jones (3-38), Tamoor Zafar (3-10) and Jamie Jones (2-0) polished off the opposition.
