Furness eased to a five-wicket win at South Lakes rivals Lindal Moor at Pennington Lane last Saturday, as the new season of the Cumbria Cricket League swung into gear.

The Moor had a poor day with the bat as they collapsed from 124-5 to 136 all out in the 34th over, with Sri Lankan overseas Janith Silva top scoring with 34, as Mark Daly took 4-26 and Sachith Pathirana, with 3-28 put Furness on top.

Openers Wyll Stanway, and Lewis Gribbin gave Furness a good start with a stand of 56, and Furness won in the 33rd over making 137 for 5.

Silva impressed with the ball for the hosts, as he returned figures of 3-26 from his 12.2 overs.

Another Sri Lankan, Samara Sadamal starred with bat and ball for Millom thrashed Keswick by 111 runs.

Taking first knock, Millom soon lost two wickets, but Sadamal made an excellent 126, including 15 fours and one six, and with Graham Dawson (41) and Mike Wilson (40) also contributing, the visitors were 242-6 at tea.

Keswick would be unhappy with their batting performance, as wickets fell regularly to see them all out for just 131 in the 41st over. Samara completed his good day taking 5-44 and Braith Connor claimed 4-25.

Dalton also had an excellent day on the road, as they defeated Egremont by six wickets.

After sticking their hosts in to bat, Dalton soon reduced Egremont to 27-4, but Mark Ponticelli with 70 and Jon Paul Dixon, 30, staged a good recovery to see their side to 165 all out.

Lasith Lakshan, yet another Sri Lankan overseas, was the pick of Dalton's bowlers, as he took 4-26.

The visitors made a modest start to their chase, as they drifted to 30-2, but Lakshan's 66 put his side in control to see Dalton win at 169-4 with almost 18 overs to spare.

Elsewhere in the Premier Division, Carlisle were another team to win on their travels, as they defeated Cockermouth by five wickets.

Cockermouth made a steady start but only opener Matt Sempill made a major innings with 73 as they were restricted to 181-8, with Mike Slack returning 3-29 for Carlisle.

The visitors replied confidently and with an unbeaten 56 from Ben Davidson guiding them to their target.

Glen Liddle took 3-25, as Wigton skittled Whitehaven for just 98 before captain Nico Watt (34) and wicketkeeper Matthew (32) guided them to a seven-wicket win.

Grant Reid smashed 106 for Workington, as they posted 243-7 at Cleator, before Dan McDermott took 4-20 as the home side were rolled out for 184.
