Cricket Match Report – 5th May 2019


Latest update from the Mount Edgcumbe Cricket Team

MTECC v Holbeton on Sun 5 May 2019 (home)

Another good batting performance, Ben scoring a second consecutive 100 not out with Andrew 53 and Chris M 25 chipping in. A good performance in the field as well, no byes conceded by the wicket keeper, no wides conceded by the bowlers, in fact no extras in the innings! How rare is that!

Batting first an opening partnership of 91 saw Andrew caught on the boundary for 53, his fifty, fast for him, in 57 balls and 49 mins. Chris B struggled to establish himself at the crease and after 10 balls was out for 1, then a partnership of 82 between Ben and Chris M pushed the score on to 176. Ben dominated a 41* partnership with Matt (4*) at the end reaching his hundred of 84 balls, Andrew then declared on 215 for 3.

Tight bowling after tea, with only a couple of opposition batsmen making in roads to our total, and with wickets falling regularly  with all four bowlers getting in on the act.  Dave’s last two overs wiped out the tail, picking up 4 wickets and conceding no runs, shame about the first over.

A fine win by 111 (that nelson again) runs.

Mt Edgcumbe 215 for 3
Andrew Ware 53, Ben Hutson 100*, Chris Baskerville (run out) 1, Chris Marsh 25, Matt Elmer 4*, DND Scott Brown (run out), Luke Dennis, Dan Rogers, Rob Lock (1 catch), Dave Doherty

Luke 7o 1m 41r 1w; Dan 8o 2m 33r 2w; Scott 4o 0m 21r 1w; Dave 3o 2m 9r 4w
