Noble takes five as Cook helps serve up excellent Kilmington win
Kilmington produced an excellent all-round show to knock leaders Kentisbeare off their perch.
The Mid Devon side batted first and made their way to 125-9. Ben Noble was the chief destroyer in terms of wicket taking as he sent down a dozen overs before returning the marvellous figures of 5-10.
Keith Rockett was also amongst the wickets with 3-30 whilst skipper Maurice Bevis was the other wicket taker (1-37 in 11overs). Dave Cook (54), John Lavender (26) and Win Wilmott (23) then combined to see the hosts to a comfortable victory.
A delighted Bevis said: “That’s been coming. We really did play very well and the great thing from my point of view was the all-round show. Not only did we bowl superbly but our support fielding was of the highest standard and then we made what might have been an awkward run chase a very comfortable one. It was highly satisfying but now we most certainly need to begin to show a level of consistency of this type of all-round effort and performance.”
On Saturday, Kilmington travel to Babbacombe in South Devon.
