Stewart Macleod's Cheshire Development XI just fell short in a thrilling finish against Cumbria at Barrow.

George McCormick took 3-14, Jack Kesteven 3-16 and Ollie Latter 3-19 as Cumbria were reduced to 133 from 31 overs.

Cheshire's top order struggled slipping to 50-5 in reply, but with Ned Bailey (32), Matt Jones (23), Declan Feakes (15) and Kesteven finishing unbeaten on 19, rallying, the visitors fell agonisingly short by two runs.
