Despite Mishrah's stunning knock, Ravenscar were still only able to post 164 all out, Tom Pratt taking stunning figures of 4-7 and Kieron Rutter also chipping in with 3-39.

Scalby 3rds beat Cayton 3rds by 42 runs.

Tim Barton led the Scalby charge with 25 as they were all out for 102, Matty Micklethwaite taking 4-37 to seemingly put the hosts in the driving seat at the tea interval.

Luke Howland had other ideas, his 3-21 helping Tashken Turan's side skittle Cayton for just 60 and start their campaign with a win.
