RAINHILL were inserted and skittled by the seam attack of Leigh on a damp wicket.

Only Kennedy, 23, and Rotheram, 19, showed any resistance and Rainhill were 72 all out in 30 overs.

In reply, Leigh didn’t have it all their own way and Qureshi still managed to spin the ball and his 4 for 10 off 10 overs was a credit to his flighted guile and deceit.

Hibbert, 32, swung from the hip but McKiernan, 20no, cautiously held the chase together and Leigh passed their target losing five wickets in the process.

Rainhill need to learn how to bowl on seaming wet tracks or learn to defend when batting or else relegation could be on the cards.
