Weighell of fortune is against the NTSL.

A STRONG Wellstream NTSL Under-21 side lost to the North Yorkshire and South Durham Premier League in the Nicholson and Morgan League Cup.

The margin of victory at Annfield Plain CC was a decisive eight wickets.

The NTSL side was managed by former Durham paceman Neil Killeeen.

In the early stages it looked like it was going to produce a massive total when electing to bat after winning the toss.

Connor Fellowes cracked 10 fours and one six on his way to 65 scored from only 58 balls faced.

Jonny Meadows was in even more attacking form, hitting 14 boundaries and a six in his 67-ball 81.

However, from a position of real strength on 144-2 in just over 20 overs, the innings lost its momentum as the NYSD boys clawed their way into the game.

Callum Buckley, brother of Durham's Ryan, was the pick of the NYSD attack with 4-54.

His efforts helped his team eventually bowl the hosts out in the last of their overs for 243.

That was still a pretty impressive score in a 40-over game, but the array of NYSD batting talent then set about the home attack.

Opener Whally Ghauri smacked nine fours in his run-a-ball 52.

Then skipper Jonny Weighell joined James Quinn at the crease, the pair sharing a matchwinning unbroken thirdwicket partnership of 155. Quinn ended on 60 not out, scoring six fours and two sixes in his 67-ball knock.

However, the final glory fell to Weighell, who struck eight fours and six sixes - the last bringing up a superb century at the same time as winning the game.

He ended on 101 not out from just 72 balls faced, and the victory came in just 35.1 overs.
