Cheshire hold the advantage after the first day

Glorious weather welcomed the Cheshire and Wiltshire cricket teams and up to 300 spectators to the Flacca yesterday for the first day of the three day Minor Counties Match.

Cheshire lost the toss and Wiltshire chose to bat first. After 20 overs Wiltshire were struggling at 71 for 6 with Boughton Hall's Ash Davis proving very difficult to play. Morrison and Afridi then put on 69 for the seventh wicket but by mid afternoon Wiltshire were all out for 166.

Cheshire started well and the 100 came up with the loss of just one wicket but in just five overs 116 for 1 became 137 for 5. Recovery came through Boughton Hall's Lee Dixon with a rapid 44, including four sixes, and at the close Cheshire had reached 252 for 9.

Do come along today to watch what could prove to be a very interesting second day. Play starts at 11.0 am

Inspired Villages' participation in this 3-day event celebrates their new sponsorship partnership with Tattenhall Cricket Club in which they have funded a state-of-the-art electronic scoreboard which will be in use throughout the match and a mix of exciting events which will take place over the next three years.
