Christleton's star Kiwi, Mitch Renwick, is celebrating back-to-back County League centuries.
At Little Heath on Saturday, he topped his 136no at Timperley the previous week with a magnificent unbeaten 162 – and it was almost enough to earn his side victory over Didsbury.
The visitors totalled 251-4 (Phil Critchley 72, Nick Anderson 68, Simon Normanton 63), to which Christleton countered with 239-6 (Jonny Fawcett 2-99) as the match was drawn.
Renwick, who must relish batting fortnightly on such a featherbed, also turns out for Hampshire 2nds.
Elsewhere in Division One, left-arm paceman Guy Emmett claimed a fine 6-28 as Oulton Park routed neighbours Davenham for 81 in a four-wicket win at Butcher’s Stile.
Tattenhall’s tail-enders earned a draw with Sale, who posted 153 (Ian Dixon 44). Tatters held out at 130-9, Henry Dobson making 39.
In the Premier Division, bottom club Cheadle were dismissed for 58 and beaten at home by 10 wickets at the hands of Chester Boughton Hall.
Only Elliott Bullock (26) reached double figures for Cheadle against fine bowling, notably from Ian Linwood (3-20), new recruit Ash Davis (3-22) and the evergreen Alex Kegg (2-1). Chester went on to win inside 13 overs at 61-0 (Warren Goodwin 32, Mark Rowland 25).
Chester remain 19 points behind impressive leaders Toft, who won at Macclesfield.
In Division Two, Alvanley stay bottom after a losing draw at home to Brooklands.
Stunning weather and an equally stunning pitch set the scene for the first meeting of the clubs in the County League for 17 years.
Brooklands won the toss and chose to bat first, and they struggled initially as Chris Charles and Joe Hornby found bounce and a little swing.
Just 11 runs came from the first nine overs as the ball beat the bat regularly.
The changes of bowling from either end saw some good deliveries sent down from Roberts and Ecclestone, but a four-ball per over allowed the visitors to up the rate.
A couple of spilled catches proved critical as, with wickets in hand, Brooklands finished with a flourish and posted a par score of 230-6.
Alvanley needed a solid start to build a base for an assault later in the innings. But this did not materialise as Will Speakman, Steve Charles and Mike Rowlands (21) all fell before the end of the 12th over.
But at least Chris Jones (42) and Si Gee (64no) were showing an appetite for the battle. Following the departure of Jones, Chris Charles pulled Gee along with him and the pair added 102 before a wonder catch removed captain Charles for 52.
Andy Bennion slammed 21 in just 10 balls and suddenly the required rate was down to 6.5. But Bennion’s dismissal, soon followed by Fisher and Ecclestone, swung the game back to Brooklands so Charles decided enough was enough and, with only a few overs remaining, the shutters were put up.
Alvanley ended on 188-9, 16-year-old Joe Hornby helping to repel the last three overs.
