Unfortunately, this match was badly affected by rain. Starting late, the game was limited to 40 overs a side and gallant efforts were made both by players and Umpires to achieve a result.

Here is the scorecard.
This was the Cheshire team for Tuesday's match.

On Thursday, 13th July, they played Warwickshire Academy U19s at Crewe Vagrants CC.
Warwickshire batted first and started quickly. It looked as though a score well in excess of 300 could be possible. However, Cheshire pegged them back and Warwickshire finished on 241 for 9 after their 50 overs.
In reply, Cheshire started well, scoring at 5 an over which made it look like a win was distinctly possible. Unfortunately the batting collapsed and Cheshire finished on 145 all out, losing by 96 runs.

A MESSAGE FROM THE WEBMASTER

Cricket Archive have put their website behind a paywall. It would cost everybody 50 per annum to access the information on their site.

To avoid this, I have removed all references to scorecards held on Cricket Archive and changed them to the scorecards held on ESPNcricinfo.

Unfortunately, this has meant that official scorecards for Development XI matches have been lost as the ESPNcricinfo site does not have them.
