Woodbury & Newton St Cyres skipper Nalin Chouhan was the star of the show as his side claimed a three wicket win in their Devon League Tier Six East East Four game at Upottery II.
Home skipper Andrew Pulman won the toss and, on a soggy mid-August Saturday, opted to bat first.
Chouhan took the new ball and soon had the home side wobbling on 5-3, claiming all three wickets for himself.
Upottery slipped to 34-7 before ‘recovering’ to 97 all out in 21.3 overs.
Chouhan finished with the splendid figures of 7-27 from seven overs and no fewer than five of his seven wickets were clean bowled! Becca Silk (2-11) and James Plowman (1-31) were the other visiting bowlers to claim wickets.
