Visiting MCC Cricket Team Win By One Run

The visiting MCC cricket side had to catch the Cyclone jet boat to make sure they got to the islands for the cricket game against islanders on Tresco yesterday.

And both sides seem happy with the close result.

It was a visitors’ victory by just 1 run following a commendable effort by the Scilly team.

The mainland players batted first and got to 241. Scilly replied with 240 for 9 off the allocated 40 overs.

Scilly Captain James Francis was pleased with the game, and thought there was a really high standard of cricket played, adding “you don’t get a much closer result.”
