What a Win!

Having faced Gloucestershire earlier in the season with a win, Devon met on home ground at Whimple Cricket Club on a very wet and soft pitch and wicket. Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to field.

Devon had a steady start with the bat going at an average of 5.8 at the ninth over when the first wicket was claimed. Daisy Meadowcroft and Sophie Florides (14) put on a 53 partnership. Daisy batted steadily and intelligently throughout the whole innings and was unfortunately caught by the keeper with three balls left in the 40th over on 99! She put on a good partnerships of 74 with Rose Ball (35) and 72 with Becca Halliday (35*).

Devon completed their innings on 224-4

Runs were hard to come by for Gloucestershire especially from the opening bowling of Sophie Florides (7-3-9-1) and Katie Donovan (5-1-12-0) and were only on 18 after the first 12 overs. Devon bowled so well with wickets for Katie Harman, Maddie Holifield and Maddy Ross who each claimed two each.

Gloucestershire were bowled out in the 32nd over for 103.

Devon won by a wonderful 121 runs!
