There were no shocks in Sunday’s CCB Sixes Knockout Cup semi-finals, as the big guns strolled to their expected appointment in this Sunday’s Final. 

Falmouth could only manage 78 all out in the first match, Guernsey international Ed Farley making 23 of them. 

Truro skipper Kyle van Rooyen scored 26 not out in the reply, with the match ending in the ninth over of twelve. 

St Gluvias, playing a man short, did well to take four of St Austell’s wickets in the first half of their innings, three of these to Jake Preston. 

However, Gary Bone (71no) and Steve Raven (63) steadied the ship and scored almost at will in the closing overs as the total passed 150. 

This was too much for St Gluvias who finished over a hundred short, but they at least had the satisfaction of avoiding being bowled out.

The day’s only League fixture saw a big win for Ladock over Stithians. 

Carl Murphy held the Ladock innings together, with 44no, as they made the good total of 117 for 5.  This was too much for the western side, who capitulated to 36 all out, Patrick Morgan returning the excellent figures of 2 for 2 in two overs.

Results: Premier League – Ladock 117-5, Stithians 36 (Ladock won by 81 runs); Knockout Cup -  Falmouth 78, Truro 80-1 (Truro won by 5 wickets); St Austell 157-5, St Gluvias 48-4 (St Austell won by 109 runs).
