King of swing Ajaz Akhtar was at his most lethal today (May 31).

The former Peterborough Town star is now plying his trade with Ketton Lions on a Saturday in Cambs League Division Two and he masterminded a super-quick victory at Yaxley.

The overcast, humid conditions suited Akhtar down to the ground and he bowled superbly to finish with 6-38 off 15 overs.

And with Matt Williams also in menacing form at the other end (4-20 off 11 overs), it meant Yaxley were shot out for 88.

Rob Woolley then led the way with 43 not out, finishing with a six off Andy Weston to steer Ketton to 93-1 and a nine wicket win in just 11 overs.
