1st’s end the season victorious

1st XI v. Water Orton

Kenilworth’s first team travelled to divisional champions Water Orton for their final Warwickshire Cricket League Division One fixture of the season on the 10th of September.

After persistent rain, the two sides were eventually able to start a twenty overs a side match at 3.45 p.m. Home side Water Orton batted first and were soon in trouble at 3 for 2, but Lloyd with 56 and Bennett with 40 put on 83 for the fourth wicket, Water Orton made a decent total of 152 for 8 from their 20 overs as Kenilworth didn’t help themselves by dropping six catches. Kenilworth wickets  went to the consistent Steve Rhodes with 2 for 15, Ed Ruswa 2 for 25, Joe Boyle 1 for 23 and a wicket for  Dave Edmunds 1 for 22 whilst there were also two smart run outs.

Kenilworth started their reply in a positive manner, Joe Boyle with 19, skipper Chris Prophet 22 and Dave Edmunds 37 were all able partners for opening bat Tom Booker who played a classy innings of 68 not out, his innings including 4 x 4 and 4 x 6, putting on 56 with Dave Edmunds for the second wicket and another 56 with Chris Prophet for the third wicket, as Kenilworth finished on 156 for 3, to win by seven wickets with three balls to spare. Kenilworth ending their 2016 League campaign, finishing a credible fifth in Division One with a win.
