WISBECH Town captain James Williams took three wickets for Cambridgeshire yesterday - including the prize scalp of Ashes run-out hero Gary Pratt.

Pratt became an unlikely hero during the fourth test of the 2005 Ashes series at Trent Bridge. The former Durham batsman came on as a substitute fielder - only to run out Australian captain Ricky Ponting.

But yesterday Pratt was at March Town Cricket Club’s ground, The Avenue, captaining Cumberland against Cambridgeshire in a three-day minor counties clash.

He became one of seamer Williams’ three wickets, when he fell caught for 20.

The Wisbech skipper finished with figures of 3-41 from 12 overs having fell for a duck earlier in the day.

Cambridgeshire, who have former Surrey and Nottinghamshire batsman Darren Bicknell in their ranks, amassed 303-8 in their first innings yesterday before reducing Cumberland to 127-5.

Rain put a halt to proceedings today, with no play possible before lunch.
