Cornwall Ladies win South West Region Twenty20 Cup
Cornwall Ladies travelled to Dauntsey's School (Wiltshire) last week and came back with victory in the South West Region Twenty20 Cup.
Cornwall got off to a fantastic start on day one by posting 141-3 (Rebecca Rowe 42, Hannah Grice 36, Charlotte Phillips 26) against Wiltshire, seeing them to a 27 run victory.
However, it didn't quite click into place for the second match. Despite restricting Buckinghamshire to 93-6 (Ashley Bridges 2-10, Hannah Grice 2-15), the team fell short by 11 runs. Cornwall came back fighting on day two with a convincing 35 run win over Dorset to qualify for the final (Cornwall 95-4, Charlotte Phillips 23, Rebecca Rowe 15).
A first class bowling and fielding display meant Bucks finished on 59 all out in the final (Katie Pearce 3-7, Fern Nicholls 3-15), resulting in a five-
wicket victory for Cornwall. Charlotte Phillips was named Cornwall's player of the tournament.
