Royal Challengers Bournegalore will take on Barnack tonight (Tuesday) in the quarter-finals of the Jaidka Cup,

The quarter-finals had been due to take place last Wednesday but all four fixtures were a wash out.

On Friday night March Crows beat holders Wisbech Wildcats by eight wickets.

It was a stunning success for March who haven’t played in the competition for several seasons, although they left it late before securing their semi-final spot.

Steve Seymour cracked the winning runs with three balls to spare at the end of a brisk cameo innings of 25. March had set out in pursuit of their victory target of 112 with a steady opening partnership of 75 between skipper David Hodson (39) and Stephen Shaw (29).

Nassington Knights also moved smoothly into the semi-finals on Friday with an eight-wicket win over Castor Harlequins.

Castor were dismissed for just 57 with Alex Bandaranaike and Harrison Craig taking three wickets apiece.

Nassington will play the winners of the Barnack/Royal Challengers Bournegalore. That semi-final will take place on Wednesday.

March now await the winners of a delayed quarter-final between Market Deeping Dragons and Babbar Khalsa which will take place tomorrow (Wednesday) at Outgang Road.
