In doing so, they ended Wanderers-Irregulars’ slim chances of reaching the Odey Wealth Weekend Cup final, which will be between Griffins and Cobo, who still have to face each other in the round-robin stage first.

However, despite posting an imposing score of 297 after being asked to bat, Tom Kirk’s side were indebted to 10 outstanding overs from Luke Bichard, who continues to impress every time he is thrown the ball by his skipper, that ensured the blues finished 21 runs short in their reply.

There were five half-centuries on the day, with cousins Nathan (80) and Luke Le Tissier (71) both making one at the top of the Griffins order before Tom Nightingale added a top score of 86.

Jeremy Frith made a best of 67 for Wanderers-Irregulars and while he was at the crease, they were threatening to overhaul Griffins' total, but Dane Mullen trapped him LBW at a vital time in the game.

Waleed Jami also past 50.
