Wanderers secured a dramatic five-run win over Sportsmans at Eadon-Clarke on Saturday.
Sportsmans, set 198 to win, seemed set for victory at 7-185 but five-time Cricketer of the Year Shayne Bidwell changed the course of the game when he bowled Clint Yeates (67).
The remaining wickets fell at 189 and 192 to promising youngster Michael Nelmes (3-38) and Sportsmans were left wondering what might have been.
Wanderers batted first after captain Brad Annison won the toss and tallied 7-197.
Openers Quinn Letch and Damien King (22) put on 25 for the first wicket and then Wanderers stumbled as they lost 4-18 with Callum Jupp (2-13), Dan Welsh (2-28) and Trent Simpson making inroads.Full story in today's print edition.
