Summary

  • Carew Cricket Club have been charged with bringing the game into disrepute following their controversial declaration that allowed them to win the Pembroke league title.
  • A league statement read: “Pembroke County Cricket Club received several written complaints concerning the conduct of both Carew CC and their captain, Brian Hall, following their match with Cresselly.
  • “As a result of that meeting Carew have been charged with bringing the county cricket club into disrepute.
  • But Carew appear to have worked out the mathematics which would see them lose the match but clinch the title if they denied their opponents any batting or bowling bonus points.
  • So after Cresselly won the toss and put their opponents into bat, Carew declared on 18-1 after just 15 balls with Cresselly reaching their target in two overs and winning the game, but losing the title by a single point.
