Sky shone bright in the latest round of Division One matches in the Victoria Park League.

The unbeaten runners-up smashed 248-4 against Bansko Bears and at one point looked on course to reach the 300 mark.

Dominant hitting from openers Ali (50) and Gurfran Hassan (53) led the way, with Andrew Tate (34) top scoring as Bears came up well short on 135-4.

Rose & Crown eased past Old Fallopians, who could only muster 135-5 with leading scores from Jack Wright (32) and Mohammed Junaid (26).

The defending champions kept their unbeaten record as they reached their target inside 13 overs, with Nat Mangalagiri retiring out on 50.

Unbeaten Millwall made a formidable 200-4 the following day against Mile Tailenders, led by Muzzammal Salman (52) and Ahmed (50).

But opening batsman Sanj Gunewardene proved the batting hero of the day for Mile Tailenders, retiring out on 50 and returning to the create to score a rare century.

Dropped on the boundary on 99, he was eventually run out for 103 as Tailenders closed on 182-7.

Paul Teasdale (46) led London Fields to a comfortable win over Regents, who made only 109, while London Tigers eased past Best National’s 96 for the loss of just one wicket.

In Division Two, Victoria Lounge proved too strong for Old Fallopians seconds, making a daunting 174.

Rob Tatton-Brown, Stefan Phillipson and Rob Morgan all retired out, before off-spinner Tim Garrett (3-13) held OF to 94-4.

Camel Lights enjoyed a high-scoring battle with Crossrail, as captain Tom Proter (50) and Dave Sendall (46) impressed in a 30-run triumph.

Sports Interactive made their best score of 134-1 thanks to openers Duncan Greenwood (43) and Keith Flannery (44), but Sports Interactive eased home in 12 overs as Len Hutchinson hit another half-century.

Pacific piled up 209-4 against Ex Pats in the only match played on Thursday – with many watching England take on Belgium at the World Cup in Russia – as veteran Riz Saddique led the way with an impressive 68.

But Ex Pats found gaps in the field to race to victory in 13 overs without losing a wicket, thanks to unbeaten efforts of Dom Fanning, Will Daly and James Burton.
