The hosts lost the toss on a damp wicket but Aussies Steve Seymour (30) and Steve Shaw (25) knuckled down to help them to 59-2.

But March lost their remaining eight wickets for 42 and were dismissed for 101.

March had the visitors in trouble at 59-4 but Ramsey re-grouped and reached the target in the 33rd over.

James Beresford’s five wicket haul helped March II pull off an unlikely two run win over Bluntisham in a friendly.

March batted first and made an measly 119-9 off 40 overs, with extras top scoring (23).

But Beresford (5-15) and Jason Bullman (3-12) shared eight wickets as Bluntisham were all out for 117.
