Villagers are too good

St Boswells beat Boroughmuir (no scorecard available)


ST BOSWELLS stayed clear at the top of the second division table following a convincing victory over Boroughmuir at Meggetland.

The Villagers won the toss and elected to field first – and the move immediately paid off as Elliot Turnbull bowled the Borughmuir captain with the first ball of the game.

In his next over, he got two more in two balls to put the visitors firmly in command with the score on 5 for 3 wickets.

Boroughmuir stuck to the task defiantly, however, but still losing regular wickets, finished on 108 all out in 45 overs. Turnbull ended on four wickets and Chinniah Prabhakar with three.

After tea, the visitors set about their work in brisk fashion. Openers Cletus Mathurin and Ruthven were rarely troubled as they picked off the bowling with ease to race past 90 runs in 12 overs.

Mathurin eventually went lbw shortly after getting his 50.

Craig Patterson was next in and was unlucky to hole out for a duck to midwicket.

With Ruthven unbeaten at the other end, Prabakhar came in and hit the winning four.
