Leverington lacking runs

Have your say

Leverington started their campaign in Cambs Junior 1A with a disappointing seven-wicket defeat at home against Histon seconds.

They lost a crucial toss and batted first, but started well with Ricky Brown 37 and Simon Gilbert 20 putting on 37 for the first wicket.

Leverington, however, did not score enough runs in the middle overs and it was left to Aaron Cobb 19 and Ian Cooper 17 to up the run rate as Leverington were bowled out for 141.

Leverington bowlers struggled to find the correct length to bowl at and it was only with the introduction of Brown 2-15 that Leverington got any control, but the damage was already done as Histon got home in the 28th over for the loss of three wickets.
