Falkland Progress in 2 Counties Cup
By Dave Jackman
Fine Knock From Cameron Nellies
Falkland 134 for 5
(C Nellies 73) Meigle
102 for 9
(M Harvey 20, S Meikle 3 for 17)
Falkland won by 32 runs
On a miserably cold and wet night at Victory Park, Meigle, Falkland progressed to the next round of the Three Counties Cup. The conditions were hardly suitable for cricket even at the start, and the game finished more or less in darkness with everyone wet and miserable. There will be better nights for playing cricket!
Falkland were indebted to Cameron Nellies who hit 73 with 4 fine sixes. He was well supported by both Connor Langlands and Lyle Robertson who both scored 19. In the circumstances, the total of 134 was very acceptable, although they were helped by Meigle's strange arrangement of their bowlers resulting in their two best bowlers each being an over short at the end.
In reply, Meigle were 32 runs short and Falkland were once again indebted to Cameron Nellies for three catches in the outfield. The best bowler was Steven Meikle with his 3 for 17.
A good win, but cricket on a night like this is no pleasure.
