DEVON CRICKET LEAGUE RD 2 2021

1st XI

After the first day win at Abbotskerswell, the 1st XI wanted to maintain momentum with Bradninch the visitors. There was a late morphing of Mike Pugh into Sonny Baker.

Bradninch won the toss and not unsurprisingly asked Torquay to have a bat with the weather closing in (60% of the A Division never even started). The new opening partnership of Tim Western and Chris Kelmere put on 101 for the 1st wicket, Western fell for 53 while Kelmere fell just short of his fifty with 45. The rain finally hit the English Riviera after 28.3 overs with Torquay on 122 for 2. Alas there was no further play and the captains touched elbows by mid-afternoon – by then Torquay CC 1st XI were top of the A Division.

2nd XI

The 2nd XI travelled to the edge of Dartmoor to take on Ashburton CC 2nd XI put never got out of the cars.

Match Abandoned – Torquay CC 2nd and Ashburton CC 2nd (6pts each)

Next up for the 2nd XI a visit from the re-named Teignmouth and Shaldon CC 2nd XI.


Player of Day

Whilst the batting of Western and Kelmere was impressive. The clock has been turned back the best part of 24 hours to Wine and Wickets. It is usually Noah or Beau Rider who are putting the Rider family on the cricketing map. However, this time, step forward mum Faye with an absolute stunning one handed catch to catch Dee Passenger out. Big brother Shaun and dad John would have been proud of it.
