SCOTT Baldwin turned in a superb all-round performance as he helped Hartley Wintney to their fifth straight win over visiting Totton and Eling.

The New Zealander took 6-38 and then top scored with 68 in the six-wicket victory.

The visitors won the toss and elected to bat, but soon lost opener Sam Bracey caught behind by Hugo Hammond off the bowling of Anthony Parson (3-19).

After Parson removed his fellow opener Baldwin got to work taking out the middle order as they slumped from 55-2 to 93-8.

Totton’s number eight Billy Lightfoot added some much-needed late runs as he top scored with 32.

He was the last man out as Parson returned to snap up his third wicket. Mark Teale collected the other wicket as the visitors were bowled out for 135.

The home side’s reply did not get off to the best of starts as Jason Knibbs departed for a duck.

However, Will Kerr (23) and Baldwin took the score to 70 before Kerr was the second man out.

Baldwin was then the third man out for 68 which came off 31-balls and saw him hit nine fours and four sixes.

Hugo Hammond (27 not out, which included three sixes) and Roy Cockram (13) moved the score to 125.

It was left Hammond to Jonny Kerr to see the home side home within 19 overs.

This was good practice for today’s Finch Group Guy Jewell Cup final at May’s Bounty against Basingstoke which starts at 2.30pm.
