Match report v Cheesewring (home) Sun 15 July 2018

PB’s and club records smashed as we secure a victory against Cheesewring.
Andy PB and is the first player to score 150 plus in an innings (unless you have evidence of a greater feat).
Andy and Chris set a new 2nd wkt partnership of 173, beating the previous 166 also against Cheesewring.
Dave PB 4 for 6.
Ben 2 for 5 and a sore hand or two, he stopped  some cracking shots.
268 for 2 the 6th highest team score, three of the top six now against Cheesewring.
Three great catches from Dave (2) and Angus to dismiss batsmen 2 and 3  for golden ducks and take the final wicket.
We won the toss and on a pitch resembling something from the sub continent batted first.
Opening 87 partnership from Andy and Ben, with Ben out for 35, Andy passed 50 in 55m/53b, then 100 in 93m/100, and 150 in 134m/131b, (new column in spreadsheet required) before being out for 155. Chris was not out 44 and Rob Lock not out 3 as we declared at tea for 268 for 2.
After tea Angus struck quick to take the first three wickets to fall, including one in the first over, a high catch taken at slip by Dave and in his second over an instinctive c&b low to the ground off a fiercely struck drive. Josh, Kaylie, Rob Lock and Mike, found no luck with picking up wickets, Mike had the only wicket in their spells. Then the introduction of Dave and Ben saw the remaining 6 wickets fall 31 runs in 8 overs, Dave picking up 4 and Ben 2. The last wicket again falling to another great catch from Dave which saw them dismissed for 156.
Mount Edgcumbe 268 for 2
Andy 155, Ben 35 (1 catch), Chris 44* (1 catch), Rob Lock 3*, DNB – Steve Mathis, Angus (1 catch), Mike, Josh, Kaylie Baskerville, Dave (2 catches) and Alan Farley (Good to see him back, a great effort as wicket keeper)

Steven Boyd, John Fearon and Martin Moore relaxing at tea after setting a club record score of 271-1

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.
