Cricket Match Report – 25th June 2017

Cricket at Mount Edgcumbe

Latest update from the Mount Edgcumbe Cricket Team

A game we could have won, but a game we didn’t loose and a fine innings from Rob Way of 92* saw him carry his bat, with his fifty off 75 balls in 80 mins.

Cheeswring got off to a good start and we thought we might be chasing a big score, but as wickets fell the runs slowed up an they declared on 186 for 6 at tea, Tom the best of the bowlers picking up 3 for 26 (come on Josh!)

In reply Andrew and Rob W put on 66 for the first wicket, but Andrew was out for 39, a relative failure for him this season. Rob was ably supported through the innings, but no one produced the spark needed to score quick runs. At the end of the game we were 177 for 5, agonisingly close to the win.
