Corn­wall bats­men run into trou­ble

Central Leader - - Sport -

Eden Roskill’s re­cent run of good form con­tin­ued with a 48-run win over Corn­wall in the Jeff Crowe Cup one-day club cricket com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­day.

Half cen­turies from Brad Stad­don, 62, and Vivek Trichy, 57, saw Eden Roskill post a com­pet­i­tive 259-9.

In re­ply, Brent Find­lay’s un­beaten cen­tury of 101no wasn’t enough, with no other bats­men of­fer­ing any mean­ing­ful sup­port and Corn­wall fin­ish­ing at 211-8.

At Onewa Do­main Grafton United couldn’t com­pete with an im­pres­sive per­for­mance from Taka­puna.

De­spite Ankur Mistry and Jonothan Roberts tak­ing three wick­ets apiece for the vis­i­tors, Blake Dou­glas took the game away from Grafton with a quick­fire 76 in a to­tal of 248-9.

Jared Cun­ning­ham, 75, and Tony Man­ning, 36, were the only bats­men to stand up for Grafton, who were even­tu­ally dis­missed for 189 in the 44th over.

Mean­while, sod­den out­fields pre­vented play in many matches around Auck­land in the Hed­ley Howarth two-day com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day.

Day two of the match be­tween Grafton and Eden Roskill was aban­doned be­cause of heavy overnight rain on Fri­day, while lim­ited play saw the game be­tween Corn­wall and Taka­puna fin­ish in a draw. Re­sults: Eden Roskill
