Wild lifts Ker­ridge

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - ADAM BANKS

KER­RIDGE made the short trip over to War­ring­ton to play Ap­ple­ton, won the toss and bat­ted first.

Af­ter re­cent weeks of no play they hit the ground run­ning. Ste Re­gan hit a de­ter­mined 62, Jimmy Knight showed his stroke play skills for 31 but it was Luke Wild with his 151* who stole the show in just 14 overs with 29 bound­aries, 15 of those be­ing sixes, in a re­mark­able part­ner­ship of 184 with Alex Grimes 25*. Ker­ridge de­clared on 312/5 in the 42nd over

Ap­ple­ton were never go­ing to chase down 300 plus and from the off­set were de­ter­mined to thwart Ker­ridge a win and padded up from the start.

Ker­ridge threw ev­ery­thing at them look­ing for the win , but af­ter 48 overs could only get the hosts to 104-9, with Knight 5-13 off his 15 overs the pick of the bowl­ing with Carl Ry­der also get­ting a brace.

Ker­ridge still took 15 points. This week­end they are at home against Glaze­bury.
