THERE were wins for Ammanford, Clydach, Swansea and Newport on Sunday (May 30) as the South Wales Premier T20 knockout cup continued.
Ammanford played host to Ynystawe on Sunday in the first round of the Premier League T20 knockout Cup.
Batting first, Ammanford’s Davies brothers, Rhodri and Rhys, put on a half century opening stand before Rhys was out for 26.
Rhodri carried his bat for an unbeaten half century aided and abetted by a swift and unbeaten 46 from Matthew Fisher.
158 for 2.
Ynystawe were never really in the chase, despite brave efforts from Nathan Lee (30) and Owen Evans (28). They finished on 93 for 6.
Clydach posted 129-7 in their game against Gorseinon with Jason Davies top scoring on 41.
Gafyn Donald returned figures of 3-17 from his overs to give his side a good chance of winning the game.
However, Gorseinon finished their innings 30 runs short on 99-6 as Clydach bowled well to restrict them.
Samihan Ghanekar finished unbeaten on 32 but it was too little too late as Matthew Vaughan’s 3-33 prevented any real progress.
Swansea’s Brad Wadlan was the star of the show in their game against Mumbles on Sunday as he finished unbeaten on 91.
Wadlan smashed 11 fours and two sixes as his knock came off 54 balls.
Max Phillips claimed figures of 2-8 for Mumbles who were set 160 to win the game.
There were scores of 22 from opener Charles Clist, 27 from Richard Gibby and 29 not out from Ben Jones but it wasn’t enough to see them through.
Jake Roberts 2-12 helped restrict Mumbles who finished 21 runs short on 138-6.
Sunday’s other game saw Newport come out on top against Chepstow.
Newport scored 164-6 in their 20 overs with Mujahid Ilyas top scoring on 48 with three fours and four sixes.
Josh Waughington hit seven fours and a six as his score of 42 came off 20 balls.
Hugo Caldicott finished unbeaten on 37 as Chepstow were given a tough target to chase.
Kameel Sahabdeen and Jason Dobbie finished not out on scores of 35 and 29 respectively but the damage had already been done.
There were two wickets for Ilyas and others for the rest of their bowlers as they restricted Chepstown to 115-6 to win by 49 runs.
Those wins earned them places in the quarter finals which are scheduled to take place on June 20.
