Brothers wrap up victory

BROTHERS Alex and Gary Bone guided St Austell to a six-wicket win, with five overs to spare, against Hayle at Wheal Eliza.

The pair shared an unbroken stand of 135 for the fifth wicket to guide St Austell to 201 for four, needing 199 to win.

Seventeen-year-old Alex scored 74 not out, having been dropped on 10, and elder brother Gary added 64 not out as the pair took St Austell from 66 for four to guide the Saints to victory after 45 overs.

Earlier, Richard Hall took three for 22 as he has openers Mike Bone (10) and Andrew Libby (four) both caught by Johan Martiz, whilst also trapping Kyle Van Rooyen lbw for 18, having scored two big sixes.

There was also a controversial decision which saw Matt Ellison caught behind for 19, having only been given out after a long discussion between to the two umpires Tim Boston and Simon Menneer.

Hayle had won the toss and decided to bat first.

They put 20 on for the first wicket when Maritz was caught by Gary Bone off Scott Barrott’s bowling for 19.

Stephen Richards and Stephen Wiseman then took the score to 104 for two, before Gary Bone had Richards caught by Liam Watson for 38.

Wiseman went on to score 41, with Daniel Lello adding 38 and James Franklin 21.

Paul Lello then remained unbeaten on 16 as Hayle ended their 50 overs on 198 for six.

Libby took two for 23, Barrott two for 39, whilst there was tight bowling from Van Rooyen who went for just nine runs in six overs, three of which were maidens.

The win was St Austell’s third of the season and pulls them away from the foot of the table which is occupied by Grampound Road, while visitors Hayle are next to bottom.

St Austell visit Werrington on Saturday, while the club’s hosts the Clive Rosevear Hawkey Cup final tonight where Werrington face Grampound Road. Play gets underway at 6.30pm.

St Austell (18 points) beat Hayle (six) by six wickets.
