DORSET 172 & 145-2 (16pts) beat WILTSHIRE 194-9d & 119 (5pts) by eight wickets

DORSET produced a dominant display with bat and ball to beat Wiltshire by eight wickets on the final day at Wimborne.

The win puts Dorset top of NCCA Championship Western Division One, on 32 points.

Luke Webb’s men resumed with Wiltshire on 108-6, the away side looking to extend their 130-run lead.

However, four quick scalps – two each for Rob Pack (3-44) and Ben Fletcher (3-19) – meant Dorset required just 142 with more than two sessions remaining.

Josh Digby and Oli Soames duly set about giving Dorset a solid platform in their second innings.

In what proved an irresistible combination, Digby chose to play the anchor role while Soames scored fluently.

And the duo compiled a century stand to suck the life out of Wiltshire’s defence.

At 120-0, Ed Young had Digby (31) caught behind and there was an agonisingly identical fate for Soames.

The opener had batted so beautifully for his 91, hitting 14 fours in his 114-ball knock, but it was left to skipper Webb (10no) and Alex Eckland (9no) to see Dorset home.

Dorset’s next fixture is at champions Berkshire on Sunday (11am).
