Truro v Wadebridge

MATT Rowe struck his first century since coming back to the Duchy over the off-season as Wadebridge eased to a 92-run success at Boscawen Park.

The left-hander who counts Troon and St Austell amongst his former clubs saw his side in early trouble as they slipped to 19-3 and 46-4.

South African opener Kevin Renecke was out injured for the second straight week and opening bowlers Freddie Bose (2-59) and Conway Gilbert (3-47) took advantage.

But Rowe found fine support from skipper James Turpin as they put on a match-winning partnership of 152 as they took advantage of Truro missing Pakistani pro Amir Yamin who was representing his country in the World Championship Legends of Cricket T20 Series where he got out England great Kevin Pietersen.

Turpin, who struck six fours and two sixes in his 84-ball knock was eventually caught by Charlie Kent off Bose for 65.

But Rowe, who batted through for his 112 from 148 deliveries (14 fours, one six) was then joined by Kelvin Snell who made a quickfire 22 from just 14 balls as they closed their 50 overs on 245-6.

Bose and Gilbert shared five wickets while Neil Ivamy’s ten overs cost just 19.

Truro, who were aiming for a sixth straight win, got off to a tough start themselves as the Phillips brothers – Harry and Dan – both fell cheaply.

South African Jaco Van Greunen was out soon after, and although Charlie Kent battled away for 36 from 81 balls, not much support was forthcoming with the exception of Rob Harrison.

He was 31 not out at the end, but with Callum Wilson taking 4-23 and Turpin (2-16) and Elliot Dunnett (2-21) snaring two apiece, it was the Swans seamers that had Truro all out for 153.
