Yorkshire’s Disability S9 team completed a comprehensive victory over Wales at Conisbrough CC on Sunday to continue their unbeaten start to 2022.
A series of useful contributions at the Doncaster venue led to a 76-run victory for the county’s Terriers, who are top of the North table with two wins and a No Result in three games.
Yorkshire, batting first, made 225 all out in 30 overs, including a quartet of thirties from Richard Lovedale (35), Jake Shepherdson (32), Hameed Abbasi (30) and Guy Mason (30).
They all retired out, allowing Jamie Dillon to add 27 and Oliver Fawcett 19.
In reply, Wales posted 149-7, as Dillon’s excellent day was capped with two wickets for seven. He was backed up by William Baxter’s 2-23 and a solitary wicket for Matthew Shaw, added to a Shepherdson executed run out.
This was the perfect way for the S9 Terriers to warm up for their next fixture, a Roses clash with winless Lancashire on June 29.
