Kenilworth Win

The Saturday 2’s recorded a fine 66 run win over Knowle with startlet 15 year old Charlie Stranks the man of the match taking a stunning 6-19 off 10 overs as he ripped through the Knowle mid order and tail as they tried to chase down the Town’s 200-7. Ali Peebles took 2-26 when he removed the two Knowle openers but it was the introduction of Stranks that changed the game. Knowle slumped from 100-3 to 123-8 as Stranks took all 5 wickets on the bounce to fall whilst Rupesh Sarvankar and Geoff Edmunds took a wicket a piece as Knowle were skittled out for 134. Earlier, the Town had Mark Stranks and Edmunds with 37 each, James Alty and Lewis Phillips 27 a piece and Sarvankar 26 to thank for posting their 200 score despite the efforts of Knowle’s Lewis’ 4-56 but the day belonged to Stranks Junior and his superb spell of spin bowling.
