Narrow defeat for the Academy despite Dorsey's unbeaten century

Narrow defeat for the Academy despite Dorsey's unbeaten century

Lancashire beaten by three runs at Notts

Lancashire Cricket Academy lost a high scoring 50-over clash against Nottinghamshire by just three runs at Notts Sports Club. 

After skipper Sam Dorsey lost the toss, Lancashire were asked to bowl first and Notts made a strong start with their top four all amongst the runs. 

Budinger (51), Martindale (29), Evison (104) and Gibson (102) helped their side to reach 297-2. 

However the Lancashire bowlers continued to plug away and Rob Lord (4-68) and Praharsh Parikh (2-38) were both rewarded with wickets towards the back end of the innings. 


Notts posted 321-7 and in reply Lancashire made a positive start through opener Ali Chughtai (60) and number three JJ Fielding (29).

When Dorsey came to the crease with the score on 98-2, the Lancashire innings began to motor. 

Dorsey, well supported by George Bell (48) and Subhaan Mahmood (23) scored an outstanding, unbeaten 111 from 132 balls including seven fours and a six.

Despite his best efforts Lancashire fell an agonising three runs short of Notts, finishing on 318-5 from their 50 overs.
