A remarkable bowling performance from Bandula Don was the highlight of the Drakes Huddersfield League programme.

The Sri Lankan opening bowler for Denby helped dismiss Jedi Sports Championship promotion chasers Moorlands for just 32.

He bowled 5.2 overs, five maidens , and claimed seven wickets for no runs!

No3 Jake Dubbledam remained 16 not out for 10-man Moorlands and the only other batsman to score a run was Jared Maxwell with one.

There were 15 extras to make up the rest of the total and Bandula Don had three clean bowled and four lbw decisions in his seven-for.

Adnan Ghani bowled opener Andrew Fortis to claim the other wicket – there was one run-out – and he finished with figures of one for 23 from six overs.

Denby had little trouble in reaching their target, winning by eight wickets.

Moorlands’ defeat denied them the chance to go top, because leaders Slaithwaite lost to Holmfirth, falling five runs short when chasing 233-7 in which Scott Richardson hit 107.

Moorlands also slipped out of the top two because Rastrick won by nine wickets against Marsden at Round Hill, Jacob Waterson hitting 58 not out as the home side reached 129-1 in response to 126 all out (Jack Pearson four for 38).

While Mirfield celebrated their first win in the Drakes, by four runs against Birkby Rose Hill in the Cedar Court Conference – Alex Pearson taking six for 56 – leaders Delph & Dobcross maintained their unbeaten start to the Premiership season with a 143-run win against Elland at Hullen Edge.

Skipper Andy Gleave led the way with 107 for Delph as they totalled 270-4, before Shak Muhammad claimed five for 35 and Shree Goswami three for 14 to send back Elland for 127, in which Jacob Bower scored 47.

Shepley stayed second despite totalling only 132 at Honley, where Tom Burkinshaw finished 40 not out and Aussie Andrew Padbury claimed four for 40.

Skipper Simon Kelly with 28 was the only Honley batsman to make any headway, however, as they were sent back for 74 in reply, Danny Glover taking four for 24 and Danny Wood three for five.

Alex Morris hit 67 and Max Joice an unbeaten 60 as third-placed Hoylandswaine made 219-3 to win by seven wickets at home to Shelley.

Hasnat Yousaf hit 71 for the visitors.

Iqbal Khan scored a fine 101 against one of his former clubs, Scholes, to guide Cawthorne to victory at Dark Lane.

Kiwi Tom MacRury hit 53 for Scholes while Khan took three for 28 in their 215.

Cawthorne finished on 219-5, Liam Wiles backing up Khan with 47.
