Latest update from the Mount Edgcumbe Cricket Team
After a morning of heavy rain, we were put in to bat and found scoring runs difficult.
After 25 overs we had 77 runs on the board and it didn’t speed up, finally declaring on 177 for 6 at tea. Andrew passed 50, eventually, with well earned contributions from Matt, Dave and Chris who scored 27* on his debut for the club.
On a drying wicket the opposition made scoring runs look easy, albeit assisted by Angus, who although managing to bowling two maidens, conceded eight fours from his three other overs. Dave was the pick of the bowlers taking all three wickets that fell. In fact for the second week in a row we had the chance of a hat trick, had Matt been able to get a hand to a sharp chance.
PB’s this week for Matt 24, Dave 38, Chris 27* Tom 5*, Dave 3 for 42
Mount Edgcumbe 177 for 6
Andrew Ware 63, Matt Elmer 24, Dave Bygrave 38, Chris Lomas 1, Mike Payn 0, Chris Marsh 27* Angus Gourlay 8, Tom Payn 5*, DNB Josh Payn and Rob De Viell
