Week 2 Match Reports

Updated: Jun 6, 2023

Ashburton first team hosted Brixham and, after winning the toss, elected to bowl first.

Tim Robinson (23) and Chris Lanyon (17) were chiefly responsible for getting Brixham to 59 for 2. The wheels then came off completely as skipper Steve Edmonds (3 for 29) and Jake Bartram picked up regular wickets as Brixham slid to 92 all out. Bartram finishing with quite remarkable figures of 5.4 overs, 6 wickets for 19 runs.

The Ashburton reply started terribly as Sajin Sivarajan (9 overs, 5 wickets for 10 runs) and Holly Perkin (7 overs, 2 for 30) reduced them to 5-5. Greg Robinson and Ryan May (10) took the score to 30 before another cluster of wickets fell leaving Ashes 38 for 8. Robinson marshalled the tail and had taken the total to 61 when he was last out for 29, a fine knock in the circumstances, leaving Ashes losers by 31 runs.

Ashburton second team travelled to play their Yelverton counterparts and also came off second best.

Martin Goff (72no), Geoff Brain (31) and Jamie Wright (25) led Yelverton to 150 for 4 in their 40 overs. Marcus West (2 for 23) was the pick of the Ashes bowlers with single wickets for AJ West and Nat Wood.

Phil Pascoe (23) and Robin Lambert (21) added 33 for the opening wicket before Ashes nosedived to 68 for 6. A lower order fightback by Jerry Crouch (27no), Marcus West (23), AJ West (13) and Andy Hayman (10) almost took Ashes to victory, but they finished just 6 runs short on 144 for 8 in their 40 overs.

Midweek Ashburton first team took on B division side Bovey Tracey in the Aaron Printers Cup.

Bovey posted an imposing 163 for 4 in their 20 overs thanks to Samuel Robbins (58 from 39 balls), Sam Harvey (53no from 50 balls) and Dan Green (40 from just 22 balls). Overseas Jon Malan (4 overs, 2 for 25) was the pick of the Ashes bowlers.

The Ashes reply started rapidly as Lloyd White (49 from 32 balls) and George Yabsley (11) added 60. However, when they both fell to Harry Pitman (4 overs, 2 for 22), the rest of the Ashes batsman struggled against Jonah Serong (4 overs, 5 for 12). Only Dan Coles (20no) made it into double figures as the Ashes innings fizzled out and they finished on 124 for 8 in their 20 overs.

Marcus West who had runs and wickets in Ashburton seconds narrow defeat by Yelverton.
