Rampant Rohit puts Menai in a spin
Maiden five-wicket haul for Carmel from promising leg-spinner Rohit Kaimal gives Third XI victory over Menai Bridge.
Leg-spinner Rohit Kaimal claimed his first five-wicket haul in senior cricket as Carmel's Third XI beat Menai Bridge by five wickets.
Home skipper Alun Davies elected to bowl first and was rewarded with a mesmerising two spells of bowling from 12-year-old Kaimal.
The youngster claimed five of Menai Bridge's top six batsmen to finish with 5-15 from his nine overs, including three maidens.
Richard Collett (1-18), Luke Bodman (1-17) and Connor Traynor (1-7) also picked up one wicket apiece as Menai posted 115-8.
Opener Jon Fisher laid the backbone of Carmel's response after the tea interval with a typically solid knock of 45.
He was supported by Matty Isgar (13) and Ben Sim (27) before Carmel lost Bodman (0) and Kaimal (0) without scoring.
However, wicketkeeper Dafydd Bailey (20*) and Greg Mostyn (5*) ensured the home side reached the target without further loss to secure the win.
The 12-3 points win ensured the Third XI finished their campaign with six consecutive victories, although their final league position will not be known until next weekend.
