Another cracking (Easter joke) batting performance from the top order. This week Tom passed fifty, it came off 48 balls in 46 mins and Ben carried his bat for 119 not out, his hundred off 103 balls in 108 minutes. Andrew and Mickey supported them well, however you have got to feel a little sorry for the other batsmen, for the second week in a row not getting a chance to shine. A slowish start, then the runs started to flow once Andrew was out and the opening bowlers were changed. With two partnerships of fifty plus and one of 111, nelson strikes again, we declared at 239 for 2.
Top four batsmen have an average greater than 25, Andy over 50, Luke the only batsmen to finish with a strike rate greater than 100. Ben hit the most sixes and Andy batted for 979 minutes. Matt and Andy (2) hit centuries.
Top two bowlers had an average better than 15, Dave took the most wickets with 25, including the only 5 for of the season.
Two new club records, Andy 155 runs and Andy and Chris best 2nd wkt partnership of 173. Lots of personal bests.
Ben the only player to reach double figures with the catches
See how you faired.

Fans of The New Inn maybe disappointed, it has recently been refurbished to include a roof terrace, a very neutral colour scheme and parque flooring.
The traditional boozer styling has gone, along with ale casks behind the bar and nearly all of the pub games.
However the toilets have been greatly improved and have benefitted from a bright selection of glossy tiles.

On the 6th May 2007 Mount Edgcumbe played against Cheesewring CC at Upton Cross.
Batting first we set a then club record score of 271-1. John Fearon carried his bat to score 114*, his maiden century. He opened with Steve Boyd (62) in a first wicket partnership of 105. Martin Moore joined John to score 59* and help post a record second wicket partnership of 166*, which was also the all-time highest score for any wicket.
This may have been the only instance ever of an innings featuring two century partnerships or an innings where all three batsmen scored half centuries.
