Cricket: Davidson shows early season form

23 04 2014

On Saturday, Dumfries 2nd XI, Eco-Genics Nunholm, won their friendly against Galloway at a sunny Nunholm prior to their competitive matches starting this weekend.

20140419 477 Galloway D Davidson x1024Nunholm batted first and lost three early wickets to the bowling of Conn and Flack. However Chris McBride took the side past fifty with his score of 23.

Meanwhile Davie Davidson provided an important backbone for the innings in further partnerships with Potts, Rafferty and Kyle.

Davidson accelerated the scoring in the latter overs to finish as the side’s top scorer on 78 not out and the Anderson Kilts Dumfries Man of the Match. Nunholm finished on 176 for 9 after the 40 overs.

20140419 504 Nunholm - spring x1024Galloway looked on course to challenge that total as guest opener Chris Brockwell produced a succession of boundaries. The losses of Bradley and Conn dented that hope but a rate of four an over had been maintained at the twenty over mark.

However Brockwell had already passed sixty when was out to an excellent running catch in the deep at long-off. That altered the complexion of the game as Davie Davidson followed his efforts with the bat with four wickets and Stuart Alexander took two for Galloway to be all out someway short of the target.
