It was the Abdul Saddique and Shashrika Pussegolla show for Barnoldswick at the weekend as they defeated Settle in Group Two of the Ramsbottom Cup.

The pair shared a brilliant 148-run third-wicket partnership and then were both among the wickets in Settle’s reply.

Saddique struck a fine century – a knock which included 11 fours and one six. Indian pro Pussegolla fell three runs short of three-figures, smashing three maximum hits and 11 boundaries in his 64-ball knock.

The pair then took three wickets apiece as Settle were bowled out for 159 – 98 runs short of Barnoldswick’s total of 257-4.
