East Prawle Cricket Club
2008 Match Reports
Prawle made its first attempt at the Corinthian Cup, also know as the Devon Junior Cup, on May 20th only to be knocked out by Holbeton.
The cup rules call for 16 eight ball overs and in our allotted time we knocked up 78 with Alex Browne high scoring on 16, followed by Julian Brazil on 14. Holbeton, playing at home, won the toss and put us in on a damp and slow pitch that was difficult to score on.
Holbeton's bowling was quick and tidy and Ben Cook took two wickets in his four overs. Treeby and Atwill took one each. 78 for 4 in 16 overs was not a great score to defend. Ackland for Holbeton opened with Legrice and the former played a measured innings, scoring 25 not out in the 13.1 overs it took for the home side to make its target. Edwards also stood out for Holbeton , scoring a quick 18 , including 3 fours. Shaun Taylor clean bowled Ebbutt and Edwards, Tillott and Richie Thuel took a wicket each and Francis was run out after facing only two balls. But it just wasn't enough for us to move on in the cup.
Better luck next year.
We won by 17 runs in a game that saw 425 runs scored
by the two teams in 70 overs.
