WILTSHIRE needed just two days to claim their first Unicorns Championship win of the summer after beating Cornwall by an innings and 74 runs at Corsham.

Ed Young’s side shared a rain-affected draw away at Cheshire in their three-day opener a fortnight ago but showed their full potential at Station Road.

Jake Lintott was the star of the show for Wiltshire, taking five wickets in each Cornwall innings and returning match figures of 10-79.

Cornwall won the toss on Sunday and opted to bat first. Although they looked nicely placed at 155-2, Lintott (5-53) and Joe King (3-27) soon turned momentum Wiltshire’s way and the visitors collapsed to 184 all out.

Wiltshire made a superb start in reply as player-coach Tom Morton (58) and Jake Goodwin (80) shared an opening stand of 85.

Lintott (53) and Tahir Afridi (51) also hit half-centuries, while no one in the Wiltshire batting line-up was dismissed in single figures.

That allowed the hosts to reach 345 before they were dismissed, giving them a first-innings lead of 161. Andrew Libby (4-80) was the pick of the Cornwall bowlers.

The visitors found life hard going as they got their second innings under way, with Wiltshire taking wickets at regular intervals as Chief tormentor Lintott (5-26) was assisted by Afridi (3-14) in dismantling the Cornwall line-up.

No visiting batsman scored more than 20 as they were skittled for just 87 – still 74 runs shy of asking Wiltshire to bat again.
