Five-star Wear destroys Baildon

Keighley News: Jack Beetham scored an unbeaten 37 for Keighley Jack Beetham scored an unbeaten 37 for Keighley

Keighley and Undercliffe returned to winning ways last Saturday after suffering their first defeats of the season the previous weekend.

Keighley showed no mercy to Baildon as they dismissed them for 109 before racing to a ten-wicket win.

Richard Wear took 5-28 as Baildon crumbled, with only Jonny Reynolds (39) standing firm. Keighley cruised to their target, with the league’s all-time leading run-scorer Richard Robinson (54no) and Jack Beetham (37no) leading them home.

Undercliffe drew level on points with Keighley after a century from opener Hamid Khan enabled them to chase down a Great Horton score of 210-9 with 23 balls to spare.

Khan hit three sixes and 12 fours in his 108 and he was joined in an opening stand of 116 by Farakh Hussain (53).

Great Horton skipper Mohammed Altaf (52) was their top scorer against his old club. He was supported by Muhammed Bilal (35), Rizwan Darr (31) and Altaf Hussain (31) in the face of good bowling from Amir Hussain (4-57) and Nawaz Sardar (3-35).

Keighley II’s four-wicket success against Woodlands saw them move off the bottom of the Division One second-team table.

Consistent bowling by Alex Towler (3-22), Ben Jagger (3-16) and Hassnan Quereshi (3-10) restricted Woodlands to 104, even though Elliot Richardson made a battling 51. Keighley eased to their target, with Andrew Waggett impressing with 39.
