Latest update from the Mount Edgcumbe Cricket Team
PB’s and club records smashed as we secure a victory against Cheesewring.
Andy PB and is the first player to score 150 plus in an innings (unless you have evidence of a greater feat).
Andy and Chris set a new 2nd wkt partnership of 173, beating the previous 166 also against Cheesewring.
Dave PB 4 for 6.
Ben 2 for 5 and a sore hand or two, he stopped some cracking shots.
268 for 6th highest team score, three of the top six now against Cheesewring.
Three great catches from Dave (2) and Angus to dismiss batsmen 2 and 3 for golden ducks and take the final wicket.
We won the toss and on a pitch resembling something from the sub continent batted first.
Opening 87 partnership from Andy and Ben, with Ben out for 35, Andy passed 50 in 55m/53b, then 100 in 93m/100, and 150 in 134m/131b, (new column in spreadsheet required) before being out for 155. Chris was not out 44 and Rob Lock not out 3 as we declared at tea for 268 for 2.
After tea Angus struck quick to take the first three wickets to fall, including one in the first over, a high catch taken at slip by Dave and in his second over an instinctive c&b low to the ground off a fiercely struck drive. Josh, Kaylie, Rob Lock and Mike, found no luck with picking up wickets, Mike had the only wicket in their spells. Then the introduction of Dave and Ben saw the remaining 6 wickets fall 31 runs in 8 overs, Dave picking up 4 and Ben 2. The last wicket again falling to another great catch from Dave which saw them dismissed for 156.
