Day 3

Devon set 207  – 120 All out  Tom Dinnis 13.4-4-49-8 – Cornwall win by 86 runs

The best figures since Chris Ellison took 9-80 against Cheshire at Werrington in 1998 and the 23rd best figures in Cornwall history.

The first eight wicket haul since Ryan Driver took 8-63 at Budleigh Salterton in 2007 .

Cornwall’s tail wagged on the final morning. They began the day with a lead of 85 with four wickets remaining. That was extended to 206 before being bowled out at lunch. After Christian Purchase had made a quickfire 57 on the second evening Matt Robins fell for 63, James Turpin 12 and Dan Lello 16. However, a spirited last-wicket stand of 70 saw Tom Dinnis make 41 and Andrew Libby 34 not out.

Devon were then bowled out in 34.4 overs with the last seven wickets falling for 25 runs in 14 overs.

Dinnis conceded 15 runs in his first two overs before being withdrawn from the attack.

He returned to bowl the 13th over at 45-1 taking a wicket with his first ball.

His second spell was 11.4-4-34-8.

His last seven wickets cost 11 runs in 44 balls.

 

In summary : A 100 run first innings deficit followed by a 70 run 10th wicket stand (Dinnis 41) followed by a career best 8-49 by Tom Dinnis to set up a division 2 derby next year

Wiltshire              v             Shropshire                           Marlborough CC

 

What needs to happen for Cornwall to finish in the top 5 and qualify for Division 1 next year?

Cornwall cannot catch Berkshire (102) who are already Western champions for a fourth year running,  equalling Devon’s record in the mid-’90s).

Assuming Oxfordshire (77) get one point and Dorset (76) get two points, they will also both be out of Cornwall’s reach.

Therefore Cornwall need to finish 4th or 5th.

Cornwall have 53 points and the maximum for a draw is 12 points so 65 is not enough as Cheshire already have 67 and Devon will then have a minimum 66 for a draw with just 1 bonus point.

Therefore a MUST win – A 24 point maximum will give 77 points.

Devon would then have a max of 69 with a defeat.

However, also, TWO of Cheshire, Wiltshire & Herefordshire  MUST NOT GET the points below depending on our win points.

Cornwall 24 23 22 21 20 19 18
Cheshire 11 10 9 8 7 6 5
Wiltshire 16 15 14 13 12 11 10
Hereford 24 23 22 21 20 19 18

 

If tied on points Herefordshire would be above Cornwall by 3 wins to 2 .

Cheshire, Wiltshire and Cornwall if tied would have 2 wins so be ranked on net run rate.

MCCA Rule 4.1

  • If two or more counties in a Division are equal on points, preference shall be given to that county which shall have won the greater number of completed matches.
  • If two or more counties in a Division are equal on points and have also won the same number of completed matches, their positions in the table shall be based on the higher net run rate.

Note. A team’s net run rate is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over scored by that team, the average runs per over scored against that team. All the team’s matches in the Championship, except for No Result Matches will count for the purposes of net run rate.  For the avoidance of doubt: the calculation shall be based on the number of legitimate balls received and bowled.
