Latest update from the Mount Edgcumbe Cricket Team

Another victory, comfortable even.

Chasing 169, Jon carried his bat for 88* with support from Wes and Fiz for two 50+ partnerships and Tom again scoring a PB.

Batting first Yelverton got off to a slow start with impetus coming in the middle order and again with the tail to eventually reach 169 all out at tea.

Best of the bowling saw Angus pick up 2 wickets and George 3.

Two dismissals for Jon, a catch and a stumping and a fifty off 42 balls in 47 mins

Even Mike batted sensibly for 7* supporting Jon through to the winning run.
