2’s need only 2 to post 268!

Booker and Stranks star in superb batting performance

Tom Booker and Mark Stranks gave a batting master class as they shared in a fantastic unbroken first wicket partnership of 268 for the Kenilworth 2nd’s at Atherstone who were themselves bowled out for 112 in reply to give Keniworth a 156 run victory as the bowlers continued the Kenilworth dominance of the match.

Booker was in sublime form smashing a stunning unbeaten 159 in which he hit 21 boundaries and a six as he dominated the bowling attack and was centre stage. Stranks was equally impressive in support making an unbeaten 82 in which he hit only 3 boundaries and a six as the Athersone bowlers toiled away without any reward.

Booker continued his good form as he chipped in with two sharp stumpings as Atherstone fell apart against the tight Kenilworth bowling unit, who all took wickets. Spinning duo Phil Edmonds snapped up 4-29 and colt Charlie Stranks 3-15 whilst seamers Steve Rhodes took 2-23 and Theo McBrien 1-15 as the day belonged to Booker and to Kenilworth.
