Burnley stay on top of the table after an 8 wicket win at Accrington. Professional Karl Brown top scored with 37 in Accrington's 90-8 made from a rain reduced 46 overs. Brown faced 130 balls and hit three fours on a difficult wicket. Opener Sam Bancroft was first to fall, trapped in front by Joe McCluskie for 5 with the score on 6. Jon Hayhurst scored just 4 from 55 balls before falling to Cole Hayman. Keiren Grimshaw added 22 with his professional before being stumped by Chris Burton off Bharat Tripathi for 5 at 50. Nine runs later Jacob Clarke was bowled by Chris Holt for 5. Tripathi removed Graeme Sneddon for 2 and then Karl Brown's long vigil ended when he fell to McCluskie. Skipper Ross Brown became Holt's second victim at 82 and McCluskie (3-18) picked up his third wicket on 88 when he cleaned up Tom Walker for 7. Jimmy Hayhurst was unbeaten on 7 when the innings ended on 90-8. Tripathi finished with 2-17 from 15 overs. Openers Liam Bedford and Holt put on 53 before Holt fell to Ross Brown for 27. Grimshaw removed Bedford for 22 at 59 but sub professional Jim Allenby hit an unbeaten 30 with McCluskie also unbeaten on 18 as Burnley coasted to victory in the 16th over.
