Match Report

Eastern Counties v Scotland

Scotland won by 21 runs

Scotland 211 for 7:  Eastern Counties 190 all out.

Despite the fall of an early wicket Scotland got off to a lively start but spin bowling brought the scoring rate down to about four an over and after 35 overs the board showed 135 for 3. At this point Dinesh Bailwal (67) and Patrick Druce (41) accelerated the score to 194

211 for 7 was the final count after 45 overs

The Eastern District’s reply got off to a bad start with a wicket going down in the second over and it was tempting to think in terms of an early finish but there followed a century partnership between Milne (46) and Catley (60) with both batsmen playing some handsome shots and it was not until the score was 105 that the second wicket fell.  One brought two and then a couple more and soon it was 149 for 5. The Eastern Counties were eventually bowled out for 190 despite a rear guard action from Vitas (35). This gave the Scottish visitors a win by 21 runs.

The Scottish bowling effort was led by Bailwal (3-17) and Young (3-26) although the whole attack bowled well.
