Winless campaign for county side

BERKSHIRE have gone through the whole season without winning a Unicorns Championship game following their four-wicket defeat by DEVON at Exmouth this week.

But it all started promisingly for them after being put into bat on a flat wicket on Sunday.

Berkshire did well in their first innings, making 304-9 in their 90 overs with James Morris making 88 and brother Richard 59.

They then bowled out Devon for 163 to secure a useful first-innings lead of 141. But they failed to capitalise on it, and were skittled out in their second innings for just 86 with spinner Charlie Miles taking five wickets for nine runs.

This left Devon requiring 228 to win. The opening batsmen put on 86 and Devon lost a second wicket one run later.
