Minor Counties: Cornwall stay top after Wiltshire draw

Cricket

Cornwall remain top of the Minor Counties Championship's Western Division after drawing with Wiltshire.

Ashur Morrison hit 85 not out for Wiltshire as he and Joe King survived appeals for a catch and a run out off the final ball as their side ended on 338-9, just 14 runs short of victory.

Earlier Ed Young had hit 105 from 107 balls as Wiltshire chased 352 to win.

Brad Wadlan's good form with the ball continued as he took five wickets to add to six he got in the first innings.

Cornwall had earlier been bowled out for 303 in their second innings as Matthew Rowe scored 107 at Grampound Road.

The result means at the halfway stage of the season Cornwall are three points clear of Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

Cornwall's remaining fixtures see them take on Cheshire in St Austell from 19 July, before a trip to Banbury to face third-placed Oxfordshire on 2 August.

They end their season away to Wales from 17 August.
