A great start to the U15s season with a good win over Wales.
Having won the toss, Devon captained by Emma Corney decided to bat. And though Devon lost their first wicket rather quickly, Emma (41) batted sensibly playing herself in with Olivia Churcher (55) with a great 92 partnership. Just as Emily Roberts (12) was getting in with her hard hitting, she was stumped. There was a tumble of wickets, and then Katie Donovan (18*) settled down and played some lovely shots down to third man and fine leg. Devon batted their 40 overs for 164 -7.
Wales started well and it wasn't until the twelfth over before their first wicket was caught by Olivia Chucher off Katy Baylis' consistent bowling (4-2-3-2). Katy was to claim the second wicket too in a fine wicket maiden. Emma Corney (4-1-7-3) had a great spell of bowling, despite a few too many wides! Katie Donovan (7-2-18-2) returned towards the end of the innings to take two fine wickets. Wales were bowled out for 104 in the 36th over.
Devon won by 60 runs.
