COUNTIES CRICKET Back to back wins for Wiltshire

NCCA-Logo MasterStaffordshire took county cricket back to Smethwick’s Broomfield ground for the first time in 41 years but it was Wiltshire who enjoyed the experience most as they eased to a seven wickets victory in Group Four of the National Counties Trophy.  

Having launched their Trophy campaign with a three wickets victory over Buckinghamshire on Monday, Wiltshire again paced their chase to perfection, this time getting home with six overs to spare with former Glamorgan batter Tom Cullen (67 not out) and Ben Draper (57 not out) closing out the win with an unbroken fourth wicket partnership of 114.
