MCC finish tour with win over Argentina
MCC finished their tour of Argentina with a win against the national side. Although they failed to bowl Argentina out twice, they won by virtue of a first-innings lead. MCC batted almost all the first day of the two-day game in scoring 378 for 9, built on fifties from Peter Trego, Martin George and Martin O’Reilly. Argentina batted slowly on the second day in making 223, but they had Paul Ferguson’s 60 to thank for bailing them out from 78 for 7. They reached 63 for 1 in their follow on.
MCC 378 for 9 (Trego 65, George 54, O’Reilly 53) beat Argentina 223 (Ferguson 60, Trego 5-76) and 63 for 1 on first innings.
