In-form Chorley made it two wins on the spin as they dug deep to see off Blackpool as their spin twins shone on Saturday.

Professional Gaurav Dhar and veteran Iain Critchley were the men in form as they shared eight wickets to lead their side to a 29-run win in the Chorley Building Society Northern Premier League.

Blackpool were coasting towards a win as they were 90-2 chasing Chorley's 198-7 in a game reduced to 47 overs because of rain.

But Dhar and Critchley bowled in tandem and reduced the Seasiders to 112-7 in a dramatic 30 minutes as skipper Andy Holdsworth claimed four victims behind the stumps.

There was still time for twists and turns and Steve Mercer (22) and Ash Moreau (30) tried to turn the tables with a 55-run eighth-wicket stand. Dhar broke that partnership when he bagged Mercer and paceman Billy Smith returned to clean up Moreau and Chorley were on their way to a 29--run win that was secured when Dhar had Ryan Adderley caught by Will Moulton. Earlier Chorley had turned on the style with the bat as David Fisher (35) and Jack Bentham shared an 88-run opening stand.

Bentham made a classy 63, while Holdsworth made 22 not out as most of the batsmen contributed and helped Chorley up to a handy 198-7.

Fleetwood were 64-run winners over Morecambe at Woodhill Lane as Kieran McGann claimed the remarkable figures of 4-5 from nine overs, while Kendal fell just two runs short of an impressive win over Leyland, who claimed a winning draw at Shap Road.

Lancaster won a thriller against Preston by one wicket as sub-pro Rehan Rafiq followed up a four-wicket haul with 47 not out as the Lune Road side edged past Preston's 109 all out with nine wickets down.
