Copdock & Old Ipswichian thrashed Suffolk rivals Mildenhall by 96 runs, in a one-sided Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League contest at Wamil Way on Saturday.

Dominant Copdock made it eight wins from 17 matches, by skittling out hosts Mildenhall for a mere 107 after they had earlier posted a testing 203 for nine off 50 overs.

This was Copdock’s third win in their last four outings, including the award of a 25-point win at Horsford after the match had initially been abandoned as a draw due to an unfit pitch.

Mildenhall won the toss and fielded, and they had some early joy when overseas star Tyron Koen, who was excellent with the ball, bowled Suffolk opener Martyn Cull for a third-ball duck.

The lively Koen also bowled danger-man Jaik Mickleburgh, who has scored heavily both for Copdock and Suffolk this season. Former Essex batsman Mickleburgh made just six.

And the visitors looked vulnerable on 20 for three, when recent signing Alex Oxley, recruited from Bury St Edmunds, was caught by Adam Trett off Tom Allen for three. Mildenhall must have fancied their chances, when Fergus Atkins (15) was also back in the pavilion to leave the score on 53 for four.

But Jack Beaumont steadied the ship with 36 off (55 balls), before captain Tom Rash (50) and Sam Webb-Snowling (33) put on 75 for the sixth wicket.

Rash’s 50, accrued off 92 balls, was the biggest score of the match, enabling Copdock to get up above the 200-mark.

Koen returned to the attack to take two more wickets to finish with figures of 10-2-38-4, while experienced spinner Murtaza Hussain was as miserly as always, his 10 overs costing a mere 19 runs with one wicket taken.

Mildenhall’s reply began reasonably well, with openers Peter Worthington (19) and Andrew Squire (11) putting on 27 for the first wicket.

But the innings then fell away in dramatic fashion, with the hosts losing all their 10 wickets for just 80 runs, and their last eight wickets for a mere 49 runs.

No batsman got more than 20, with Koen (20) top-scoring before he was bowled by spinner Stephen Croft. The wickets were shared around the Copdock attack, spearheaded by Beaumont’s 8.3-1-17-3, backed up by Daniel Leggett (8-2-14-2) and Hugo Douglas (6-1-19-2).
