Cornwall had a mixed championship season with two wins, two defeats and two draws. Though never in serious title contention a fourth placed finish was an improvement under new skipper Matthew Rowe. It began with a 137 run defeat at Herefordshire. The county’s highest ever successful run chase followed as the 335 target was knocked off to beat Devon with nine balls to spare. Wiltshire’s final pair put on an unbeaten 31, over the last ten overs to draw, ending 14 runs short of victory. They had been set 287 to win in just over two sessions. Cheshire were bowled out for 223 to lose by 75 runs, having been 103-1 at lunch. Needing only 112 to win at Oxfordshire Cornwall were bundled out for just 73. The final game at Wales saw Cornwall’s last pair draw the game, 43 runs short of victory. In the T20 competition five of the eight games were won but it was only enough to come second in the group behind Devon. Dorset were beaten by seven wickets in the Knock Out Trophy. Berkshire were 90-6 at one stage in the second round but recovered well to make 261 and win by 36 runs.
