Ellerslie whip Eden Roskill
After a strong first day Ellerslie completed an outright victory over Eden Roskill, on day two of the Tom Hellaby Trophy clash at Keith Hay Park.
The visitors added another 27 runs to their overnight total of 181/8, before they were dismissed as Roskill’s John Dolan completed a five-wicket haul for the home side.
Roskill’s second innings then got off to a nightmare start, as they lost their first three wickets for just one run.
The home side were eventually dismissed for 115, as Ellerslie claimed a victory by an innings and eight runs.
Roskill meet Suburbs New Lynn tonight in the T20 competition and this Saturday they take on Grafton in the two-day championship.
Sam Anderson’s five wicket haul ensured that Cornwall remain undefeated in the Tom Hellaby Championship.
Cornwall’s Brad Chemaly’s 154 not out was a welcome addition to their mammoth 336/4 first innings total.
Anderson returned the outstanding figures of 5/32 from his 20 overs, to guide his side to a first innings victory.
Cornwall will meet Grafton tonight as they begin the T20 competition and then take on North Shore this Saturday in the two-day championship.
