Great Witchingham moved 20 points clear at the top of the EAPL after Carl Rogers and James Spelman produced a club record opening stand in their 10-wicket win at home to Halstead.

Witchingham's spinners had restricted Halstead to 208 all out, with three wickets each for Spelman and Sam Arthurton and Rogers chipping in with two victims, while Amit Gupta posted a century for Halstead.

Spelman and Rogers continued their outstanding early-season form by both reaching three figures as Witchingham cruised to victory in just the 34th over.

Skipper Spelman's 104no came from 97 balls and included 21 fours, while Rogers' 100no - his second league century of the season - took 96 balls and featured 20 fours.
