3rd XI v Kenilworth Wardens

Friendly declaration ensures a tight finish

 The Thirds’ match went to the wire in their friendly clash against Kenilworth Wardens.  They batted for 34 overs before play was halted when the score was on 152-3. Geoff Hay was in fine form as he made an unbeaten 71 in which he hit 6 boundaries and as well as 3 sixes, whilst Ian Summers was  30 after hitting 4 boundaries and  a six.  When further play was made possible a sporting declaration was made and set up a last over finale. Wardens reached 154-9 in a very close match that could have gone either way. Kenilworth’s  Indy Matharu took 3-48, Rob Gardner 2-13, Jono Sparks 2-32  and Johnny Mortlock 1-17 with keeper Andy Dadswell taking 3 catches but it was Philips 38 not out and Morley 7 not out who saw the Wardens sneak pass the winning post.
