Clitheroe Cobras Under 15s kicked off their Ribble Valley Indoor League campaign with a 44-run win over Read.

Batting first, Cobras opening pair of Josh Dean and Danny Fitzgerald raced to 45 runs in their first 6 overs.

Jake Watson along with Sam Bristol added a quick 30 runs at the end to see the Cobras complete their allotted 12 overs with an imposing total of 95 runs.

In reply, Read’s innings started slowly, with the Cobras bowlers limiting them to just 14 runs from the first five overs.

The gradual build up of pressure resulted in a flurry of Read wickets as they finished on 51-4, with Cobras’ Daniel Mort bowling a miserly spell of 3-14 as his team romped to victory.
