Rampant Ravi fires Sheringham challenge

With six games to go, tomorrow's Lovewell Blake Norfolk Alliance Division Three clash between Mundford and Sheringham could go a long way to deciding the destiny of the title.

With six games to go, tomorrow's Lovewell Blake Norfolk Alliance Division Three clash between Mundford and Sheringham could go a long way to deciding the destiny of the title.

Sheringham missed out on promotion by a whisker last season and despite the loss of captain Jez Wright to Cromer, they strengthened with the addition of former Sri Lankan Test player Ravi Pushpakumara.

He has repaid them handsomely, blasting a succession of high scores, including two centuries, while also chipping in with some useful wickets.

They currently lie four points clear of Mundford, but the Breckland side beat Sheringham by four wickets earlier in the season, when Patrick Yates starred with bat and ball.
