Isle of Man Cricket Association’s rescheduled Tinker Cup final took place at Mullen-e-Cloie on Saturday afternoon.
The four-innings format, with each side batting a 10 and then 16-over innings, saw Peel win the toss and opt to bat first.
Although Josh Mills was out without scoring, Eddie Beard and Ollie Webster (41) added a rapid 59 for the second wicket before Webster was caught by Ryan Burns off Dollin Jansen’s bowling.
But Beard carried his bat for 65 from only 29 balls in Peel & St John’s first innings total of 127 from their 10-over innings.
In reply, Castletown reached 80-5 from their first 10 overs, a deficit of 47, with Jaco Jansen and Dan Laughlin top scorers with 18 each. Brendan Bennett was the pick of the home side’s bowlers, taking two wickets for 13 runs from his two overs.
Peel & St John’s piled on the pressure in the second innings, with Webster adding a further 64 from only 38 balls while Peter Lewis chipped in with an unbeaten 40 from 36 in a second innings total of 178.
Although Castletown were facing a daunting task, opening batsmen Jaco Jansen and Ryan Burns put together a 45-run partnership before Jansen was the first of Ollie Webster’s three wickets.
When Burns was out for 31, the chase was largely academic and Castletown were eventually all out still 88 runs behind Peel & St Johns’ cumulative score, with Brendan Bennett matching Webster’s three second innings wickets.
