Super Younas smashes Bash to quickfire win

BLISTERING Kamran Yousaf blazed a boundary-laden trail as Baxenden blew Oswaldtwistle Immanuel away on a stunning Saturday in the Houldsworth Solicitors Ribblesdale League.

The Pakistani ace turned the screw with the ball as Immanuel toiled for every run they could graft out in the game at New Lane – but then lit up the day with the bat as he clattered his way to 99 not out as Bash strolled to a 10-wicket win.

Immanuel had grafted to 127 all out in 44 overs with Oliver Jones making 61 from 106 balls, while skipper Nick Payne was second highest scorer with 22 as Younas claimed 4-47 from 22 overs.

Liam Riley bowled well for his 6-65 – and it seemed that Bash would face a stuggle in tough conditions after a week of rain.

But Younas had other ideas.

He ripped into the bowling and opener Stephen Sipocz was knocked out of the attack after his two overs went for 19, while Gerard Metcalf was dispatched for 36 from three overs – and one of those was a maiden.

Younas was simply irresistable, while at the other end Callum Waddington was 27 not out from 39 balls as Bash blitzed their way home in just 13 overs. Younas smashed nine sixes and 10 fours on his way to his thrilling 99 not out from just 39 balls and home skipper Payne admitted: “It was unbelievable. I don’t think it mattered who bowled at him, it was just very clean hitting.”

Barnoldswick strengthened their position at the top as they beat Padiham at Victory Park. Ishtiaq Ahmed claimed six wickets and Chris Holt picked up four as Barlick were bowled out for 158 – but the leaders then made it five wins from six games by skittling Padiham for 71.

Clitheroe got over their wobbles with a comfortable win over Salesbury. The Red Caps made the early breakthrough when Stuart Lemon went for just one but Josh McDowell and professional Kashif Siddique put their side back on course.

However, Siddique’s desire to try and hit every delivery out of the ground cost him when he was out trying to slog across the line and departed for 28.

Jack Dewhurst made a good 25 and Peter Dibb carried Clitheroe through a mid-innings wobble to make a patent 29 not out but the batting star was McDowell, who was run out for a lovely 41.

Their efforts took Clitheroe up to 194-7 – and that always seemed too many for Salesbury.

Professional Susantha Pradeep made a half-century but Siddique made up for his dreadful shot and claimed 8-25 as the Red Caps subsided to 112.

Mohammad Jamil was Read’s star against Great Harwood.

He hit 141 from just 85 balls as they men posted 276-9. Oliver Newby made 69 but the star was Jamal, whose first half century took 42 balls. His second took 26 and his innings finished with 10 fours and 12 sixes before Harwood were 116 all out.

Whalley’s Wilkin Mota was the key as his side won their derby with Ribblesdale Wanderers.

Mota hit 39 as Whalley posted 131-9 with David Howard claiming 5-43. Wanderers reached 32 without loss in reply before Sean Duckworth removed John Rain for 19. But they collapsed to 57-8 with Mota doing most of the damage. Martin Briggs (45 not out) tried to rescue the situation – but Ribb were 102 all out with Mota finishing with 7-51.

Earby claimed a first win, beating Cherry Tree. Cherry collapsed from 32-1 to 36-5 and were 73 all out with Danny Kegg claiming 6-9 from 11 overs. Peter Bairstow’s men strolled home.

And Edenfield ruined Settle’s good run as they won at Marshfield by three wickets.

Whalley were beaten by a smart Leyland outfit yesterday in the Lancashire Cup.

Richard Lamb carried his bat for 57 as Whalley posted 128-4.

But that was never enough as Leyland eased home by eight wickets with the classy Henry Thompson making 77 not out.

they are probably the most ridiculed bunch of numpties running as league to suit their own views and feelings time a lot of clubs got a decent league rep to air their concerns at the meetings instead of sending someone just to sit there and take no interest or the league will decline quickly

and i still believe this re-structuring is the thin end of the wedge that could easily tear the league apart, and drive some of the established clubs either into other leagues or to go out of business.
