Sachithra Perera was again the man in-form for Deeping as he followed up Saturday's seven-wicket spree by taking 6-44 off 8.5 overs.

Chris Milner had top-scored with 80 for Peterborough while Alex Mitchell made 51 as they posted 224 all out.

Kieran Judd (35) and James Hook (43) led the Deeping reply with Perera also making 25.

However, four wickets apiece for Karanpal Singh and Muhammed Tayyib helped dismiss Deeping for 171.

Burghley Park strengthened their grip on the Division Two title without a facing a ball as scheduled opponents Newborough failed to raise a side.

Bourne also had insufficient numbers for their trip to second-placed Huntingdon who were awarded the 20 points.

Easton-on-the-Hill failed to fulfil their fixture at Werrington and the loss of 30 points leaves them at the foot of the table on -15 with just one match remaining.

Jan Neville took five wickets to help Ufford Park to a convincing 121-run home victory over Uppingham.

Ufford had battled first and made 224 thanks to the efforts of Ram Bapodra who hit 10 fours and four sixes in his 82.

Opener Alex Agnew made 29 while Praful Keshwala cracked 37 with Ibrahim Javed adding 23 and Joe Harrington hitting 20.

Scott Green (3-24), Harvey Stafford (3-41) and Sam Hodson (2-6) were the pick of the Uppingham attack.

They were then dismissed for 103 in reply with Charlie Morley (16) and George Morley (34) their only batsmen to make double figures.

Neville took 5-14 from nine overs while Sandeep Dahiya delivered 2-28 off 8.2 overs.
