One loss, one win in T20 day.

Arden Sunday League T20 day

 

The Sunday XI had an entertaining day at Birmingham League Knowle & Dorridge’s ground as they participated in a triangular round of T20 matches between them, K & D and Midland Lankans in the Arden Sunday Cricket League T20 competition.

Underdogs, the Sunday XI lost against K & D but ended the day with a very good win over the Midland Lankans.

Sunday XI v. Knowle & Dorridge

K & D batted first and reached a very stiff 209-8 from their 20 overs as opener Janjua hit a blistering 111 as he and fellow opener, Murrow, 32 put on 131 for the 1st. wicket, the side’s only scores of note. The Kenilworth bowlers settled down into a good rhythm once the pair were out and wickets started to fall with Darius Potten-Ravenshad picking up 3-30 from his 4 overs and fellow spinner Jorjeet Singh 3-35 from his. There was a wicket a piece for Pat Howard and Henry Curran, whilst keeper Tom Booker took 3 catches behind the stumps.

Undaunted with the K & D total, the Kenilworth batsmen stayed positive throughout their innings as Chris Prophet and Booker put on 86 for the 1st wicket. After Prophet departed for 31, Booker continued on his way to a fine half century making 59 before he fell. However, K &D remained on top but Pat Howard was in dangerous form. However, in the last over the side needed 29 and this proved too much. Howard hit 3 sixes and ended the day unbeaten on 55 but his efforts were in vain as the Kenilworth side ended on 200-6 to lose by 9 runs.

 

Sunday XI v. Midland Lankans

In their second match of the day, the Sunday XI restricted Midland Lankans to 115-9 in their 20 over allocation as the side’s bowlers were on top throughout the innings. Only Joy at 8 made any contribution of note as he made 28 not out for the Lankans. Good bowling saw Steve Rhodes take 2-28, Matt Casey 2-14, Charlie Stranks 2-18, Potten-Ravenshad 2-13 and Henry Curran 1-23.

Booker then led the Kenilworth side to victory as they reached 117-5 in 18.1 overs to cap off a fine day for him as he hit his second half century of the day making a fine 67 not out. Curran chipped in with 16 and Prophet 12 in the side’s win as Lankans’ Saliya and Pasan both took 2-23 each and Arsha 1-19 to cap off a good and positive day for the Sunday XI.
