Richard Soulsby played a starring role for the MCC as they beat Chile on their South American tour – before having to retire hurt with a side strain.

The North Mymms man top-scored with 51 for the MCC as they made 158-6 in the T20 match in Santiago.

And in reply they skittled the Chileans out for 101 to complete a comfortable 57-run victory.

A day earlier they had faced the Peruvian national side and picked up a 133-run success.

Soulsby had managed 25 before being bowled by Tim Messner but the MCC were still able to make 208-6.

And in reply Peru were held at 75-8, with Soulsby getting some revenge by stumping Messner.

The tour party will now jet off to Sao Paulo where thet will play the host town’s club side, followed by the Brazilian national team before concluding the tour with four more games in Rio de Janeiro.

North Mymms start their Saracens Herts County League Premier Division season on May 5.
