BIGGLESWADE Cricket Club breezed into the semi final of the Hospital Cup when they swept aside Sharnbrook on Friday.

Sharnbrook's skipper decided to bat but his team was always in trouble and after their scheduled 16 overs were back in the pavilion on 97-7.

Harmit Bahra was the pick of the Biggleswade bowlers taking 3-23.

Biggleswade openers Kevin Wright and Jimmy Hart started in their usual positive fashion hitting 14 in the first over.

Hart fell in the eighth over for 34 which brought Frank Woodward to the crease for a rare innings and after teasing the Sharnbrook bowlers he hit a boundary and jogged off to go to a prior engagement.

Wright finished on 48 as Biggleswade reached a winning total of 100-1.
