Not quite enough

1st XI v. Bronze

On Saturday 4th June Kenilworth travelled to Bronze to play their Warwickshire Cricket League Division One match.

Kenilworth were asked to bat first, opening bat Guy Pearson with 42 was the only top order player to make any impact on the Bronze attack, as the visitors slipped to 58 for 5 , before a partnership of 80 between Aussie Matt Dargan (43) and Pat Howard (27) pulled things around, but when they were dismissed, the visitors were all out for 161 in the 49th over, Palmer with 4 for 40 doing the damage for the hosts.

The Bronze reply was soon in trouble at 8 for 2 as Kenilworth’s opening bowlers Matt Dargan 2 for 50 and the impressive Steve Rhodes 2 for 29 had the home team in trouble, but Wood with 74 and Freeman 42 got the home side back on track. There were further wickets for Tom Pope 1 for 39 and spinner Charlie Stranks 1 for 18 but their efforts were not enough as the home side won the game in the 42nd over, finishing on 162 for7 to win by three wickets. Kenilworth take five points and sees them at this early stage of the season slip into one of the relegation spots in the Division.
