Paul’s last pair survived the last five overs at Callington to force a draw.

Callington made 239 all out and Paul ended on 215 for nine with Andrew Libby taking 6-67.

St Just looked to be denied victory at home to Grampound Road when heavy rain set in around six o’clock in the far west.

Chris Hunkin made 121 in the Road’s 239 for five.

St Just raced to 194 for one in just 26 overs when the weather intervened leaving David Roberts unbeaten on 87.
