O'50's 2nd XI...'Spin Twins' Do it for the 50s!

Spinners Keith Wakeham and Paul Bates spun the Devon Over 50's team into the 50+ 2ND XI COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP Plate Semi-finals at Stafford Cricket Club on Wednesday.

Both bowlers took four wickets in the Staffordshire  sunshine – Ipplepen’s Wakeham 4-31 and Babbacombe’s Bates 4-40 – as Devon ran through the Staffs batting line up in only 29.3 overs, dismissing the hosts for just 136. Off-spinner Wakeham dismissed both openers and had four of the first five wickets, while left-armer Bates took care of the middle and late order bats.

Having won the toss, Devon batted first and after a fourth wicket partnership of 121 in 17 overs between James Blackmore (66) and Ian Hayter (58) a score of 300 looked to be on the cards. But 214-3 quickly became 217-6 and the run rate inevitably slowed.  Babbacombe pair Steve Broad (31*) and Bates (9*) however put on 44 in the last seven overs to take the total up to 261-6. Earlier, openers Mike Wilkinson (39) and Yelverton’s Jon Pilgrim (26) had set the platform with a partnership of 54 in 11 overs.

After tea Staffs were very soon on the back foot being reduced to 35-4 and despite an entertaining cameo 30 from Denton Brock were never in the game after the first ten overs. Keeper James Blackmore was kept busy with three stumpings as Wakeham and Bates out-thought the batters.
Devon make the trip to Wiltshire in the semi-final to be played on Wednesday August 17th at Malmesbury CC, 12pm start.
