Latest update from the Mount Edgcumbe Cricket Team
Another century and some more fine bowling enabled us to draw today’s game.
Having been put in to bat Andrew batted sensibly through the innings as wickets fell around him, stands of 32 with Jon, 47 with Wes, 33 with Ash and 22 with Angus, the last two setting seasons best for the 9th and 10 wickets. Fiz ran himself out and Andrew carried his bat for 108* as we reached 184 for 9 declared.
Fiz opened the bowling and in a fine spell took 3 for 4, at the other end Angus, who did bowl a batsman out, but it was off a no ball. A wicket apiece for Ash, Andrew and Dave, but once their 5 wicket fell, a draw was inevitable.
Ash Taylor, scored 16 runs, the second best score and took 1 for 40 on his debut.
