CRICKET: Wiltshire take control on day two at Corsham

Dorset Echo: WATCHFUL: Michael Porter WATCHFUL: Michael Porter

DORSET have been set a mammoth 446 to claim victory after Wiltshire piled on the runs in quick time at Corsham, as they declared their second innings on 373-6 during day two.

Leaving Dorset with a tricky 9-over period to bat late in the day, openers Masoor Khan and Michael Porter managed to get through the spell without losing their wickets, as they closed on 20 without loss.

Earlier in the day, Chris Park’s men were bowled out in their first innings for 260, and the Wiltshire openers crushed the ball to all parts in search of quick runs in response.

Jayden Levitt produced a blistering 104 from just 78 balls.

Park's troops will be facing the unenviable target of 426 more runs for victory on the final day
