Great Witchingham and Cambridge Granta produced a memorable game at Walcis Park – with three results possible going into the final over.
Chasing an excellent total of 290-5, Granta needed 12 to win with two wickets in hand and after much drama they got home off the penultimate ball of the game.
After the in-form Michael Pepper had hit the first delivery for two he was caught on the long-on boundary by Jonathan Spelman, only for a six to be awarded when the fielder put his foot on the line.
The third ball saw a single to leave three needed, but Mike Jones then bowled Anthony Child to claim his third wicket and it was left to no 11 Raj Singh to hit his first ball for a straight four to secure a one wicket win for his side.
Their effort was led by a fine 153 not out from Pepper. Witch-ingham's star was James Hale who finished unbeaten on 114 while Luke Schlemmer made 83.
