In Two Counties Championship Division One, Mildenhall closed the gap on leaders Sudbury to five points, following a 20-run victory against Wivenhoe.

A century from Steve Taylor (117) saw Mildenhall finish on 251-6, with Stephen Lankester (4-61) bowling Wivenhoe all out for 231.

Worlington’s three-match winning run in Division One came to an end after a 72-run defeat away at Coggeshall.
