Devon won a high-scoring game at Sidmouth by 20 runs after making 290-9.

With Ben Ellis bowling into a strong wind, Dan Goodey hit four sixes as 32 came off the 49th  over.

Goodey made 31 off just ten balls.

Godfrey Furse, the Cornwall team manager, said the game was won and lost in the field.

“We dropped too many catches and should not have been chasing more than 250-260,” said Furse.

Berkshire won the group after beating Hertfordshire by six wickets and Devon also qualified for the quarter-finals as runners-up ahead of Cornwall on Net Run Rate.

Berkshire will host Wales NC while Devon makes the short trip to Dorset.

The match saw the revival of a contest for the Peninsula Cup, which was donated by the late Julian Williams back in 1970 to be played for between Cornwall and Devon in a one-day fixture.

Williams, who died in 2018 aged 91, was a former president of Cornwall CCC. The cup was last played for in 2000.

Cornwall are next in action with the start of the Championship campaign against Devon at Sandford, near Credition on Sunday 10 July.
