WINSCOMBE caused an upset when they defeated Corsham by 130 runs in the Cockspur National Knockout Cup.Asked to bat, Winscombe got off to a great start with Matt Lunn and Ross Toohey putting on 85 for the first wicket in 17 overs before Toohey was caught for 35 off Foley.Alan Hunt and Dave Bailey soon followed, also to Foley, leaving Winscombe 87-3. Neil Pollard, promoted up the order, joined Lunn and after a watchful few overs Pollard started to up the run rate, playing several fine shots before, with the partnership worth 99, he was dismissed for 57, which included three fours and four sixes.Lunn, then after a quiet period, started to push the score along, but the arrival of Jerry Ham saw the score really increase as he crashed 45 off just 17 balls which included three fours and three sixes. This enabled Winscombe to post a score of 258-7 off their 45 overs, with Lunn remaining unbeaten on 94.In reply, Corsham never got going, mainly due to some excellent bowling by Iain Fraser (3-30) and Jerry Ham (2-21) at the start of the innings, which reduced Corsham to 58-5.With the Corsham batsmen facing an increasing run rate wickets continued to fall with Alan Hunt (3-41) and Neil Pollard (1-31) continuing the good work started by the opening bowlers.It was left to Matt Lunn to claim the final wicket as Corsham finished on 128 all out. This was an excellent victory against a team who play two levels higher than Winscombe and their reward is a trip to Bath in the next round.
