Meltham scored a sensational victory over Premiership side Broad Oak to reach the semi-finals of the All Rounder Sykes Cup.
In their held-over tie at Mean Lane, the Jedi Sports Championship hosts chased down the Broad Oak total of 220 to join Drakes League leaders Delph & Dobcross, Hoylandswaine and Shepley in the last four.
Former Netherlands international Muhammad Kashif was the last-gasp hero for Meltham, with some big hits in a rapid unbeaten 53, but it was skipper Simon Kenworthy who hit the winning boundary in the final over.
Meltham were given a well-judged start by veteran Darren Hinchliffe and young Sam Clegg, who put on 101 for the first wicket, when Clegg went for 34.
Hinchliffe stayed around to finish on 64, but they were starting to slip in the run-rate when he was out at 126-3 with 13 overs left.
David Dyson fell just three runs later, but Mudasar Butt hit the first six of the innings as Meltham moved onto 143-4 with 11 overs left.
When Jack Moulson and Butt had gone, Meltham were left needing 67 to win from 9.2 overs and the departure of Ibrar Hussain meant they needed 61 from just 6.2 overs with Kenworthy snr striding to the wicket to join Kashif.
Fifty runs were required off the final six overs as the pair started to spank the bowling, Kashif clearing the boundary a couple of times to lift the home support, and with four overs left the home side were still 36 runs short.
Kashif continued his onslaught with solid backing from the skipper and, with two overs to go, Meltham required 16 for victory.
Two more maximums from Kashif eventually brought him 50 and the scores level, leaving Kenworthy to strike the winning runs, much to the joy of the home support.
Elsewhere, Chris Laker scored a tremendous unbeaten 149 to take Delph to victory against Armitage Bridge, who had posted a fine 274 in their 50 overs thanks to a productive late burst from skipper Andy Gledhill (43).
Laker made sure the chase was never in doubt, however, and with backing from IPL import Shree Goswami (46) he hit 13 fours and 10 sixes in a superb innings lasting just 118 deliveries.
Goswami had three fours and a six in his knock, while Luke Hargreaves finished on 24 not out with two fours and two sixes.
While Hoylandswaine had already gone through by beating Scholes by five wickets the previous night, Shepley made short work of Slaithwaite’s challenge at Hill Top, where the Championship hosts were chasing 236-6.
Slaithwaite were never allowed to get up with the rate and Daniel Anderson finished with three for 39 and Danny Wood four for 26 as the home side were rolled for 139.
In the Fired Up Paddock Shield for second XIs, holders Barkisland are into the semi-finals thanks to victory over Hoylandswaine and they are joined by Clayton West, Scholes and Kirkburton.
The draws for the semi-finals of both competitions will be made tonight.
