Wigan 323-4 (John Richardson 157*, Jake Leyland 66; Tony Bullock 2-70) Rainhill 32 (Paul Millar 7, Rob McKeown 5; Vinay Choudhary 5-7) Wigan beat Rainhill by 291 runs Scorecard Rainhill exited the Lancashire Knockout Cup in the first round following defeat at home to Wigan. Rainhill fielded an unfamiliar looking team. Paul Millar made his debut for the 1st team while Ollie Powell and Nathan Lawler made their second appearances. As John Ball injured himself in the warm up, 13-year old Nathan Lawler was drafted into the side at the last minute. He performed creditably in difficult circumstances and showed his potential as a leg spinner with a wicket. He also did well in the field. Wigan's John Richardson, formerly of Nottinghamshire, scored a career-best 157 not out. Action photographs of the game can be found here or can be browsed below.
