Ellis strikes unbeaten century as Dorset battle to draw at Cheshire

Ed Ellis’s sublime century helped Dorset secure a draw on the final day of their Unicorns Championship clash at Cheshire.

The middle order batsman struck his maiden Minor Counties ton at Nantwich, finishing 100 not out from 160 deliveries.

Dorset resumed day three 99 for two, still 65 runs behind after being asked to follow on by the hosts.

Despite Alex Eckland (19) being unable to add to his overnight total, the visitors offered resistance with a 65-run stand between Luke Webb and Ellis.
