CRICKET: Tew duo's top knocks in vain

8:00am Monday 30th June 2014

Joe White and Harry Smith were in scintillating form for Great & Little Tew in their Division 2 game at home to Cove.

But after building a strong position, the hosts were denied by the weather.

After a delayed start, the match was originally reduced to 76 overs and Tew soon lost Jordan Garrett after choosing to bat.

White and Smith then added 153 in rapid time for the second wicket.

Smith was the dominant partner, striking 86 off 77 balls with three sixes and ten fours.

White was on 85, having faced 103 balls and hit 12 fours, when rain led Tew to declare at 185-2 after 34 overs.

Cove were unable to start their reply as the delay meant that the minimum 70 overs could not be bowled.
