No joy for the Firsts

1st XI v. Old Edwardians

On a sunny May 28th , Kenilworth’s 1st XI team travelled to Old Edwardians for their Warwickshire Cricket League Division One match.
 The home side won the toss and asked Kenilworth to bat first who lost a very early wicket and later slipped to a precarious 65  for 6 with only Dave Edmunds with 39 making any impact with the bat.
However, Tom Booker with a fine 51 (7 x 4 and a six), along with Aussie import Matt Dargan 27 put on 76 for the 7th wicket before a late collapse saw the visitors slump to 165 all out in only 38 overs as Nazakat with 5 for 39 and Altaf with 3 for 28 doing the damage for Old Edwardians.
The home side found things tricky in their reply, slipping to 41 for 3 as Kenilworth’s bowlers made it hard the home side. Nazakat was having a fine game though, his 87 not out proving crucial.

Other wicket takers were Tom Pope 1 for 27, Jorjeet Singh 1 for 47 and Neil Goodman 1 for 4, Guy Pearson taking two smart catches in the outfield. Kenilworth take 5 points.
