Aaron Cobb broke Leverington CC’s best bowling club record with 9-26 against Wisbech 3rds in Saturday’s local derby.
Cobb, who plays hockey and Sunday cricket for Wisbech, has played Saturday cricket for Leverington for five years. Only two Leverington players made double figures, Baas Keshvara (14) and Cobb (10) in their 94 all out before Cobb’s heroics. Home captain Ian Cooper described it as the best individual bowling performance he had seen.
Seven of Cobb’s victims were bowled. The final two wickets were consecutive balls, leaving him on a hat-trick next season. Wisbech were dismissed for 53 in 18.4 overs with Cooper taking the eighth wicket.
