Corn­wall loses chance

Central Leader - - Sport -

Corn­wall’s slim chances of winning the Hed­ley Howarth Tro­phy two-day club cricket com­pe­ti­tion seem to have slipped away thanks to Uni­ver­sity Eller­slie’s bats­men.

Need­ing an out­right victory to have any chance of winning the ti­tle, Uni­ver­sity Eller­slie bat­ted for most of the day, notch­ing up a com­pet­i­tive 234 at Colin Maiden Park.

Corn­wall were 14-1 at the end of day one, leav­ing them a huge task next week to come away with max­i­mum points. Mean­while Eden Roskill pro­duced their best bat­ting dis­play of the sea­son against Taka­puna at Onewa Do­main, post­ing 325-6 de­clared.

Taka­puna were 11-0 stumps.

Grafton’s bowlers strug­gled to re­strict Par­nell at Shore Rd, with the home team scor­ing 333-7 de­clared.

In re­ply Grafton were left in a shaky po­si­tion at 38-2 at the end of the day.
