Prior to the toss Bathford’s captain had said they were six top order batters down on last season and truth be told it showed, as the away team struggled to 48 all out after just … Read More

Purton post 112 all out and Sherston struggle to 70 in response. Hurricane Hannah raised the curtain on Division 5 of the 2019 Wiltshire County Cricket League at Pinkney Park.
