Latest update from the Mount Edgcumbe Cricket Team
Well what a game, 36 runs off the bat in an over, our second highest innings score, the best 5th wicket partnership and only the second of 200 runs or more, two centuries in an innings, oh and we also won the game.
Bating first we lost two wickets in consecutive balls in the fifth over and two more in consecutive balls in the ninth over, that brought Andrew and Fiz together for a 200 run partnership. Both players scored centuries Andrew’s fifty off 92 balls in 84 mins, his hundred off 135 balls in 141 mins. Fiz a bit quicker, fifty off 37 balls in 45 mins and hundred off 55 balls in 73 mins, including 6 sixes in one over, and he still didn’t score off two balls. Fiz was out for 119 and Andrew carried his bat for 103* as we finished on 279
On a small ground, scores are often high with Cheesewring making 219 in reply including another century. Matt took the gloves for the first time and only conceded 1 bye and took a catch behind, admirable. A brace of catches for Dave and Fiz, with the earlier bowlers taking a bit of a hammering, Josh picked up 2 and Dave and Tom bowling at the end had the best figures with 4 and 2 wickets apiece.
