Skittled out by a rampant Nuneaton side

1st. XI v. Nuneaton




On Saturday 17th. August, the 1’s travelled to the north of the County for their Division 1 fixture in the Warwickshire County Cricket League at Nuneaton in their 50 overs a side match that saw the return of win/lose/draw cricket for the remaining 5 matches of this season’s League programme and wished they hadn’t, as they suffered a heavy 9 wicket defeat in no time at all. The match was all over in 40.5 overs.

The day started disastrously for the side, with the top 3 all out for a duck. Being 0-2 after two overs and then 4-4 after four overs, there was no way back for them as Benn and Ison, opening the Nuneaton attack caused mayhem and carnage. Wickets continued to fall all too regularly with only Sunny Ahmed showing any kind of resistance as he made 16 – the only batsman to reach double figures. Benn produced fine figures of 3-19 off 12 overs and Ison 4-16 from his 7 overs burst. The side stuttered and limped to a paltry 46 before they were finally bowled out inside 27 overs, 11 runs of which were gifted as extras.

In reply, Nuneaton cantered to an easy win reaching 48-1 inside 15 overs as Stedhill made 12 not out and Ison 8 with the only wicket to fall taken by Steve Rhodes who took 1-12 from his 4 overs in a day for the 1’s to quickly forget about and bounce back from. 


From the WCCL Results website page:

Kenilworth 46-10 (26.2 overs) (0 points) lost to Nuneaton 48-1 (14.3 overs) (20 points).



Bottom side Khalsa give the 2’s a lesson

2nd. XI v. Leamington Khalsa




On Saturday 17th. August, the 2’s hosted bottom side Leamington Khalsa at our Warwick Road Ground in their Division 8 fixture in the Warwickshire County Cricket League for their 50 overs a side match that saw the return of win/lose/draw cricket for the remaining 5 matches of this season’s League programme and the visitors were rewarded with a 5 wicket win that sees them up move a place in the Division whilst the 2’s remain in 7th. spot.

The 2nd. XI started well and put of 31 for the first wicket but then lost their next two without moving along the score. A 25 run partnership took the side to 56-4 and there was a further 25 run partnership for the sixth wicket as the side reached 81-5. All batsmen made starts but could not progress. The side then slumped to 106 all out, losing there last six wickets for 25 runs.

Vyas hit 19, Tobin 16, Leach 14, Maney 12, Poole 11 and Casey 11 as Mayank took 3-31 and Adil 3-13 for Khalsa.

In reply, the visitors wobbled on 21-3 and 38-4 until Adil and Indy came together and put on 45 for the 5th. wicket to steady the nerves. Adil made 30 before he was run out but Indy remained steadfast to hit an unbeaten 31 and along with Ranjeet with an unbeaten 14 saw the side over the winning line as in the end they comfortably reached 109-5 without any further scares.

For the 2nd.’s,  Joe Poole took 2-16 from 11 frugal overs, whilst Matt Casey claimed 1-20 from his 10 overs and Sam Leach 1-21 from 7.3 overs.


From the WCCL Results web page:
