Suleman Khan was in top form as Lightcliffe bounced back from Saturday’s defeat against Saltaire with a 99-run home win over Baildon in Division One of the Bradford League yesterday.

The overseas man hit 70 not out - his 50 coming off 36 balls - in an unbroken fifth wicket stand of 126 with Alex Stead (89 no).

That enabled the Wakefield Road side to post a total of 270 for four and that was more than enough against Baildon, who slid from 89 without loss to 171 all out.

Khan took six for 44 and young spinner Daanyaal Ahmed three for 33 to leave Lightcliffe sixth in the table.

A disappointing weekend for Brighouse was completed by a 109-run defeat at Idle.

The visitors, now next-to-bottom of Division Two, were unable to cope with Waj Hussain, who top scored with 69 in Idle’s 215 for eight and followed up with three for 20.

Elland and Barkisland were both beaten in the top section of the Huddersfield League.

Four wickets for Ibi Younas and 102 from ex-Illingworth opener Niall Lockley were the only bright points as Elland lost by 92 runs at home to Shepley.

Barkisland were involved in a much closer game at Honley, who were limited to 193 for seven by spinner Matthew Steers’ five for 66.

Lorenzo Ingram (45), Jamie Summerscales (44) and Ben Westbrook (36) led the visitors’s response but they fell just short at 189 for nine.

On Sunday some late heroics from skipper Chris Dewhirst helped Central Lancashire League champions Walsden overhaul Middleton’s 190 for nine with two balls and three wickets to spare.
