Ely II v Coton

Match abandoned

ELY and Haddenham second team were left ruing yet another non-result as weather affected their bottom of the table clash with Coton.

Having won the toss, skipper Benjamin Storey chose to bowl, taking advantage of the new ball on a bowler friendly wicket.

The bowling partnership of Mark Deas and Storey caused all sorts of problems and Coton slumped to 17-5 in 14 overs. Deas picked up one wicket and Storey the other four.

Coton's Speller and Breward put on a partnership of 29 but when it was broken by Sam Cornwell's wicket, the visitors slumped to 112 all out.

Storey finished with excellent figures of 5-25 from 9.5 overs.

The Ely response began badly as early wickets left them on 18-4 but a rain downpour brought an end to the home innings after 11.5 overs.
