Fakenham were without the services of skipper Michael Smith, who has returned to South Africa, so Sri Lankan Tharaka Silva stepped up from the second team as the overseas player. He top scored with 31, but the rest of the Fakenham batting crumbled as Stuart Evans picked up four wickets, while Jonathan Spelman also collected four to dismiss the hosts for 95.
That target proved no problem for Witchingham, ex-Fakenham player Ben Harvey making 52 as they completed victory in the 37th over.

Highfield Lawn groundsman Mick Annand has really produced a fair strip this season.
He has counted 15 centuries scored on the wickets this season, five in the East Anglian Premier League. In the same league, the pitches have seen four five-wicket hauls for bowlers. "That's about equal," he claimed.
