Devon hosted Cornwall at Exeter CC and having won the toss elected to bat first. Giving opportunities to others in the batting order, Jacob Kopparambil opened up with Jake Pascoe. The pair added 38 for the first wicket before Pascoe (21) didn’t quite fully commit to his shot and was caught off the bowling of Callum Stephens. Lawrence Walker soon followed and when Kopparambil fell with the score on 55 for patient 16, Cameron Ford was left looking for an ally to try and post a competitive score. Two further wickets left Devon in trouble at 65-5 as the re-jigged batting order looked to be backfiring. James Tyler though (13) and Ed Butler, who made a quickfire 24 from just 15 balls helped Ford (56no) take Devon to the respectability of 176-9, in reality some way short of what they would have expected on a pitch and outfield that looked to have 200 as a par score. Devon responded very well with the ball however as all the bowlers tucked into some pretty average batting by Cornwall as the visitors were bustled out for just 37, not one score, even extras making double figures. Matt Jeacock 3-6, Ed Butler 2-5, Dan Alford 2-5 leading the way as Devon completed a comprehensive win by 139 runs.
