Jasper Payne smashed 189 as Swaffham hit one of the biggest totals seen in the Mid Norfolk Sunday League as they romped to a Challenge Cup 322-run win at a depleted Saxlingham.

Payne struck 22 fours and 10 sixes off 84 balls, while Alexander Payne hammered nine fours and five maximums off 59 balls.

The pair compiled a massive stand of 227 runs for the third wicket before being both dismissed shortly before the end of the 40-over innings.

Earlier Jasper Payne added 146 for the second wicket with Mark Eagle, who hit 12 boundaries.

Swaffham then made short work of their no-doubt demoralised opponents, who only fielded ten in the batting order, with Andy Dale cashing in by taking a swift ‘five-for.

Dale took five of the reamining six wickets to fall.

Wicketkeeper Michael Dye aided the mopping-up with three catches and a stumping.
