Gary Scott 186 has records tumbling

THE former Durham batsman Gary Scott hit the highest individual score on record in the 50-over Minor Counties Cricket Association Trophy as Northumberland amassed the highest total, 394 for six, against Cheshire at Jesmond.

======STOP SUMMARY=====

The short straight boundaries in front of Osborne Avenue and the cemetery took a peppering as Scott smashed 186, including 12 sixes, to overtake the previous best 164 by Norfolk all-rounder Stephen Plumb in 1986. Not surprisingly Cheshire finished well beaten by 219 runs.

The previous highest total was Staffordshire’s 378 in 2002. Cheshire began a hopeless pursuit badly when Matt Muchall claimed three early wickets, including former Derbyshire pair Nathan Dumelow and Ben Spendlove.
