JUST one match involving Post area clubs has survived the opening day of the Bond Timber Cornwall Cricket League season.

With over half of the games already rescheduled, around 30 games were due to be played across the county.

All five games in the Premier T20 Kernow Crash have been called off, including Werrington’s double header with neighbours Callington at Ladycross.

Werrington were due to give a debut to Australian all-rounder Sam Willis, while there were returns for Cornwall skipper Paul Smith and fast bowler Sam Hockin who has returned from Bude.

Callington were also set to parade three new signings in the shape of South African overseas player Liam Lindsay, Cornwall opening bowler Ben Ellis and Somerset’s Dutch international all-rounder Roelof van der Merwe.

Callington Seconds’ home clash with their Werrington counterparts was called off this morning in Division Two East, but it’s game on at Butts Field as promoted St Minver visit Tintagel (1pm).

St Minver give a debut to Trinidadian batting all-rounder Keron Persaud while the hosts also have a West Indian in their ranks in the shape of opening bowler Daniel Jn Baptiste, who is also a more than handy hitter in the middle order.

Tintagel also give a second debut to opening batsman Matt Jolliffe, while Alek Gill debuts for the visitors having moved from Tintagel over the winter.

Games involving Launceston and Holsworthy Seconds were called off against Newquay Seconds and St Neot Seconds in divisions three and five.

The rest of the clubs hope to get their season started next weekend.
