Kelso v Edinburgh CC

16 July 16

Kelso CC hosted Edinburgh CC in their East of Scotland fixture over the weekend, at the notorious Shedden Park. Kelso won the toss and elected to bat on what was a deceptive wicket, which looked to offer something to both sides with either bat all ball. Kelso got off to a virtuous start with opener C. Adams and Australian J. Takos steering the Tweedsiders to 77 for 1 before both were dismissed in quick succession. Edinburgh CC bowled consistently in good areas, which made it hard for Kelso to score fluently. Kelso’s middle order suffered a collapse with wickets falling frequently, however all rounder’s S.Patterson and G. Davidson managed to form a strong partnership which turned the game in their favor. S.Patterson was the pick of the batsmen scoring a well-struck 43 and guided Kelso to a total of 162. Strong contributions came from C. Adams 36 and J. Takos 29.

 

Kelso began their innings with the ball effectively with left arm quick G. Davidson removing Edinburgh CC opener for naught. The away team fought back with a strong partnership, which tested the Kelso bowlers. Young off-spinner C. Davidson came on and had an immediate impact, tearing through the top order with some superb spin bowling. The young gun was able to take wickets in quick succession, which mounted pressure back on the opposition. C. Adams picked up 2 wickets for himself leading the Tweedsiders to an emphatic win. Edinburgh CC only managed 85 runs in what was a crucial game for Kelso in terms of their league position. C. Davidson was the pick of the bowlers with outstanding figures of 5/15 from 10 overs in what was a truly memorable spell of bowling. Kelso face rivals Dunnikier this coming Saturday at home in what should be a thrilling affair.
