Graham Dawson took five wickets as Millom came out on top by 21 runs in a low-scoring match against Dalton in the Premier Division of the Cumbria Cricket League last Saturday.

Millom were put in to bat at Ulverston Road and despite 45 from Sri Lankan pro Sameera Sadamal and 27 from Robert Thompson, the visitors were all out for 116.

Dalton's Tony Butler was outstanding with the ball in taking 4-22, but his side also struggled for runs as they tried to chase down their relatively small target.

Not a single batsman from the hosts managed to reach 20 as they were bowled out for just 95, with Graham Dawson claiming a superb 5-29 and Sadamal continuing to impress with 3-18.

The win took Millom above Dalton in the table and up to fifth in the table.

Leaders Furness maintained their unbeaten record as a half-century from opener Garry Thompson helped them to a six-wicket win against Keswick at Furness Park.

After winning the toss and batting, Keswick had a moderate day with the bat, slumping to 9-4 before eventually being all out for 127 in 44 overs.

Geeth Sumara top-scored with 42 for the visitors, while Josh Shaw and Sachith Pathirana each bagged three wickets for Furness, with six of the Keswick batsmen out lbw.

Furness openers Ryan Griffiths (32) and Thompson (50) then shared a stand of 55 in reply for the hosts to set the tone and 31 from Lewis Gribbin helped them past their target in 24 overs.

Lindal Moor were hammered by nine wickets at Cockermouth after being bowled out for 160, which came despite 55 from opener Ryan Gilmour, as he helped his side recover from 60-5.

There was also an aggressive 33 from Craig Crawford, but Cockermouth’s bowlers were largely on top, as professional Kavishka Anjula took 4-35.

In reply, the hosts quickly lost opener Matthew Sempill when he was trapped lbw by Janith de Silva with just a single on the board.

However, an unbroken stand of 161 by skipper Alex Grainger and Greg Platten, who finished unbeaten on 71 and 74, respectively, took them to victory with nine overs to spare.

What looked on paper to be the game of the day fell flat as Carlisle thrashed Workington, who are now playing without a pro, by eight wickets on their own patch.

Workington were skittled for a paltry 37, with no batsman reaching double figures, as Fraser Conn took 6-22 and Mike Slack 4-13, before Carlisle wrapped up victory in just 9.5 overs.

The closest result of the weekend came at Wigton, where 36 from captain David Watson helped Cleator to a tense three-wicket victory that came in spite of 4-44 from the home side’s Chris Hodgson.

Safyaan Sharif made 58 in Whitehaven's 142-9 against Egremont, who were rolled out for 74 in reply, 68 runs short, thanks to 7-39 from Habib Baloch.
