THE odds looked stacked in favour of a Bradshaw win as they totalled 245-3 before bowling five successive maidens at the start of the Eagley innings.

Yet by the time the match ended, Eagley had wrapped up the winning points with just over two overs still remaining, pro Dirkie de Vos the matchwinner after a big-hitting batting spree.

He replied with a superb 129 that included a partnership of 111 for the second wicket with Mike Ward and 102 for the third with David Shuttleworth, Eagley cruising to their six wicket win.

Earlier Bradshaw had dominated the game with Ed Zelma unbeaten on 108 after he and Mark Gwilt put on 98 in the last ten overs of their innings.
