Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club 2nd XI v Marchmont 2 on Sat 10 Aug 2013 at 12 noon
Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club Won by 68 runs

Match report Marchmont won the toss and elected to field first on what looked like a good batting pitch with a fast outfield.

Penicuik got off to steady start as Dave Clement and Michael Ainslie added 35 for the first wicket before Ainslie was out for 17. Clement was out 11 runs later for a useful 23 and this brought Grant Davidson to the wicket to join skipper David Adams. Adams and Davidson then put together a fantastic partnership of 171 in 24 overs for the third wicket, which was only broken on the penultimate ball of the innings when Davidson was out for a well made 62. Adams was left un-beaten for a magnificent 102 made inside 30 overs. This left Penicuik having posted a very competitive score of 217 in their 40 overs.

The Marchmont reply was halted early on by some good tight bowling by Peter Kingsbury, Scott Charleson and Grant Davidson. This helped create pressure and the wickets began to fall. Once the Marchmont opener Ramachandra (40) was out, the asking rate started to climb and a good fielding performance by Penicuik kept the pressure on. In the end, Marchmont were all out for 149 in the 36th over. Pick of the bowlers for Penicuik was veteran George Liddle who took 3 for 18 in 5 overs and he was well backed up by Grant Davidson who bowled his 8 overs for just 19 runs whilst taking 2 wickets. Young Scott Charleson also chipped in taking 3 for 32 in his 8 overs.
