George Rhodes’ side Onslow CC continue to set a scorching pace in the Ewen Chatfield Trophy in New Zealand.
The Worcestershire all-rounder helped Onslow chalk up a fifth successive win via a 58 run triumph over Taita CC at Fraser Park.
Rhodes came in at 25-2 after Onslow elected to bat and helped to stabilise the innings while making 21 in a third wicket stand of 70 with Sean O’Connor (55).
He was third out at 95 and Onslow were dismissed for 184.
It proved to be more than sufficient as Taita were bowled out for 126 in 35.5 overs with Calvin Harrison (4-34) and O’Connor (3-36) the main wicket-takers.
