Tom Sallis scored his maiden century for Ashmanhaugh in a tied Norfolk Alliance Division Three match with Hillington.
On a blazing hot day, Ashmanhaugh were grateful that captain Bernie Everett won the toss and elected to bat.
After the early loss of Everett, Tauseef Satti punished the Hillington attack and raced to another 50. He and Sallis took the score to 77 before Satti was well caught at slip for 61.
New batsmen Rod Gant and Sallis dominated the bowling and both passed their fifties. After a
127-run partnership Gant was bowled by Fisher for 62. Sallis continued his domination of the bowling and reached his landmark century. At the close Sallis was unbeaten on 116 and the Ashmanhaugh total was 274-6.
In reply, the Hillington openers A Jarvis and H Bix started cautiously against some good bowling from Satti and Stuart Warminger, who bowled Jarvis for 24 in the 17th over with the score at 77.

Shortly afterwards Bix (45), and Marwick (0) were both bowled in the same over by Satti, and Ashmanhaugh seemed to be in control.
However, new batsmen Fisher and Fuller began to up the tempo and Ashmanhaugh found it difficult to contain them.
With a handful of overs left Warminger came back into the attack to bowl Fuller for 48. Hillington captain M Jarvis joined Fisher and kept hitting boundaries to keep up with the run rate.
With one over to go Hillington required 19 to win, and with two balls remaining and M Jarvis on strike 12 runs were required to tie the game.
Jarvis promptly stuck two big sixes to achieve the tie. At the close S Fisher (73) and M Jarvis (28) were the 'not out' batsmen.
This was a good game played on an excellent batting wicket. Ashmanhaugh will be a little disappointed that they were unable to defend such a large total but credit must be given to the Hillington batsmen in achieving a tie when they seemed to be well behind the scoring rate.
Ashmanhaugh man-of-the-match was Tom Sallis for his excellent unbeaten century.
