Cornwall’s cricketers kept alive their hopes of qualifying for the NCCA Trophy quarter-finals with victory over Hertfordshire at Redruth.

Cornwall made 224 for 8 in their 50 overs.

They lost Alex Bone and Joe Phillips to be 22-2 off 10 overs.

Ateeq Javid (72) and Matt Robins (61) added 108 for the third wicket before Dan Lello made 45 off 33 balls.

Having taken five wickets against Devon in the previous game Jigar Metha took 6-33 from his ten overs.

All eight Cornish wickets fell to catches.

With light rain falling an opening partnership of 77 between James Latham and Dominic Chatfield kept the visitors ahead of the required D/L par score.

After Latham pulled Ben Smeeth's first ball in county cricket, after a six-year gap, at the 25 over halfway mark the D/L scores were level.

Ellis Whiteford picked up two wickets on his home ground and with Smeeth sent down a combined nine overs for 23 runs and three wickets to put Cornwall ahead of the rate.

As conditions deteriorated play was abandoned with Herefordshire on 107 for 3 after 34 overs, giving Cornwall victory by 21 runs on the Duckworth Lewis method.

Cornwall's seamers Adam Snowdon, Ben Ellis and Jordan Thomas all bowled economical spells bowling 19 overs for 61 runs between them.

Cornwall now has a must-win final group game against Devon at Sidmouth next Sunday.
