Sidmouth 2nds had their 11-point lead at the top of the 2nd XI top flight table cut by a point after they bagged a four wicket win over Cornwood in a low scoring affair at Fortfield.

Cornwood batted first and laboured their way to just 138-9 from their 45 overs. There was some tight and disciplined bowling from the home bowlers - none more so than from Daley Holmes who sent down his full complement of nine overs, five of which were maidens, and he conceded just four runs whilst also claiming one wicket.

The wickets were shared around with Joe Griffiths (2-8 from four overs), Dec Lines 2-39 from 8) and James Gingell (2-30 from seven), each striking twice and there were single wickets for Daley Holmes and Saju Patidar (1-29 in eight).

The Sidmouth reply wobbled in its infancy with Anthony Griffiths (6), Dec Lines (0), Anthony Dibble (0) and Greg Chaplin (14) all back in the pavilion with just 32 on the score board.

However, Matthew Hewer was joined by Saju Patidar and the pair added 70 for the firth wicket which was the loss of Hewer for a patient 90-ball knock of 21. Patidar’s wicket was the last to fall – he fell for a splendid 49-ball 47, an innings that included six fours and one six.
