Wilson century in vain for Stars

Wellington Oval (Western Stars won toss): Cleveland beat Western Stars by six wickets

Temiko Wilson's unbeaten century for Western Stars was in vain as Cleveland chased 214 for victory thanks to their batting hero, Stephen Bremar, who struck a run-a-ball 79.

Bremar, a transfer from Devonshire Recreation Club, came in with Cleveland on 67 for two and was involved in a crucial third-wicket stand of 76 with opener Stephen Douglas Jr that put Cleveland on course for their second straight victory.

Bremar's 79 came in 78 balls and included five fours and six sixes, while Douglas chipped in with 58 from 78 balls with eight fours and a six.

Clay Darrell and Dennis Musson, the Cleveland captain, then shared in an unbeaten fifth-wicket partnership of 30 to carry Cleveland to victory after coming together after Bremar's departure at 185 for four.

Darrell finished with 22 not out while was unbeaten Musson on 17 as victory was achieved in 39.2 overs to send Stars crashing to their third straight loss.

Earlier, Wilson's second century in two weeks helped them post a challenging 214 for six, scoring 102 not out off 147 balls and hitting five fours and six sixes.

Stars were in early trouble at 30 for three before Wilson and Ian Armstrong, who scored 50, added 90 for the fourth wicket. Armstrong faced 55 balls and hit three sixes and three fours.

After Cleveland snatched two wickets to make it 122 for five, Wilson added 82 with captain Justin Robinson for the sixth wicket as the 200 came up and Wilson reached his first century of the season.

Musson led the Cleveland bowling with three for 39 while Darrell, his new-ball partner, supported with two for 24.
