MINOR COUNTIES Trego and Curtis set new Devon record

Ecb LogoSomerset all-rounder Peter Trego and batsman Max Curtis broke Devon’s longest-standing partnership record Wales at Pontarddulais Cricket Club.

The pair added 244 for the third wicket which surpassed the 200 that Hargrave Carroll and Frederick Beech put on for that wicket against Berkshire at Exeter in 1914.

Trego was eventually dismissed for 159 from 171 balls in his first three day innings for Devon.

Curtis, playing his first championship match for two years, made 131 from 237 balls before Matt Golding plundered a rapid 84 on his first championship appearance in two years.

Trego then took the new ball and pinned Joe Voke LBW to help reduce Wales to 112 for five with Oskar Kolk supplying the resistance with an unbeaten 42.

Hampshire wicketkeeper/batsman Lewis McManus led Dorset’s fightback against Shropshire at Shrewsbury before downpours washed out today's play resulting in a draw.

McManus top-scored with 93 – his highest score in the competition - and shared a fourth wicket partnership of 139 with Ed Ellis which helped Dorset restrict Shropshire’s first innings lead to 26.

Earlier former Worcestershire batsman Alexei Kervezee made 77 from 53 balls to help take Shropshire to a declaration on 344 for six. Worcestershire batsman Olly Westbury was dismissed without adding to his overnight 68.

Former Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Hampshire slow left-armer David Wainwright took four wickets in his first bowl for Cheshire in the championship which gave them a first innings lead of 95 over Wiltshire at Chester Boughton Hall.

Cornwall made up for lost time after Sunday’s washout against Oxfordshire at Truro.

Half centuries from Scott Harvey and James Turpin helped Cornwall to 312 all out and they then reduced Oxfordshire to 104 for seven with former Derbyshire and Essex off-spinner Greg Smith taking three of the wickets. Play resumed at 1030 today.
