Warwick and Cleveland clinched the two remaining Premier Division 50-overs league spots up for grabs in contrasting fashion yesterday.

Warwick beat Cleveland by 24 runs in the First Division play-off at Southampton Oval.

However, despite losing, Cleveland clinched the final spot after Flatts lost to Western Stars by 123 runs at Sea Breeze Oval in the remaining First Division play-off.

Stars were playing for pride having won the First Division title and with it the first of three promotion spots on offer.

Warwick scored 183 all out in 35 overs after electing to bat, with captain Staphen Dill stroking 40, Malachi Jones 33 and Jacobi Butterfield 31.

Makai Young led the Cleveland bowling with figures of seven for 43.

Dill and Jones were also among the chief wicket-takers for the hosts, claiming three for 27 and three for 39 respectively as Cleveland were dismissed for 159 also in 35 overs.

Mackih McGowan led the Cleveland batting with 48, Keith Whorms Jr added 46 and Dennis Musson 25.

Stars virtually had things all their own way in a comfortable win over Flatts.

Seion Darrell stroked 56, Jason Anderson 43, Jaiden Manders 41 and Dante Wellman 38 as Stars posted 250 all out in 49.5 overs, with 40 of those runs coming by way of extras, after electing to bat.

Nelson Bascome and Paul Carr led the Flatts bowling with three for 41 and three for 44 respectively.

Flatts came up well short in reply as they were dismissed for 127 in 31.5 overs.

Wicketkeeper Coefield Robinson and Carr each scored 26 to top the Flatts batting, while Regino Smith chipped in with 24 and Keegan Jones 23.

Rohan Davis did most of the damage for Stars as he blew away the Flatts top order with the new ball on the way to figures of six for 31.
