Jennings ton sets up victory over Cumbria

Jennings ton sets up victory over Cumbria

Keaton Jennings continued his rich vein of form with a century as Lancashire beat Cumbria by 209 runs at Sedbergh School

Match Centre

Asked to bat first by the National County side, Lancashire lost Josh Bohannon early before a mammoth second wicket stand of 157 between Jennings and Luke Wells put them in command. 

The partnership included Wells taking spinner Matthew Siddall for four sixes in an over, on his way to a dominant 86 from just 63 balls. 

Jennings reached his century soon after, but was bowled by Matthew Lowden off the very next delivery - his 103 coming from the same amount of balls faced with 10 fours and two sixes. 

That brought the skipper Dane Vilas to crease, who muscled 82 from just 46 against the tiring Cumbrian bowling attack. 

A couple of wickets fell towards the back end of the 50 overs; but there was still time for Rob Jones to reach Lancashire's fourth half-century of the innings, finishing unbeaten on 56 as the Red Rose posted an imposing 383-7. 

Sam Dutton got the Cumbria reply off to a fast start; hitting four boundaries for his 17 off nine, but when he was dismissed by Jack Blatherwick (2/25), and quickly followed into the hutch by Nathan Waterston, the visitors looked to be in trouble at 25-2. 

A gritty partnership followed between Michael Slack (38) and Gary Pratt (35) - famed for his Ricky Ponting run out in the 2005 Ashes - but when that was broken by Josh Bohannon (1/32), Lancashire were on their way to victory. 

Wickets fell at regular intervals after that; Luke Wells the pick with 3/17, supported by Liam Hurt (1/20), Keaton Jennings (1/13) and Steven Croft (1/4). 

Jennings completed his outstanding day with a long-distance run out of Watt for two, before Wells claimed Siddall to bowl the Cumbrians out for 174.
