2nd XI v. Griff & Coton 1’s

WIN!!!!!

On Saturday 25th August, Kenilworth’s second team travelled to bottom side Griff and Coton 1’s for their Warwickshire Cricket League Division Seven fixture.

After a delayed start due to rain, the match was reduced to 47 overs per side.

Kenilworth asked the home side Griff and Coton to bat first, two early wickets for Johnny Mortlock had the home side on the back foot, the home side were unable to get on top of the visitors bowling, only number six Lawlor with 45 not out had any answer to the Kenilworth bowling. Griff finished on 131 for 6 from their forty seven overs. Wicket takers for Kenilworth were Johnny Mortlock with a miserly 2 for 2 from six overs, Chris Beach 2 for 38 from twelve overs and 1 for 29 from twelve overs from  Matt Casey.

Kenilworth lost opener Matt Casey in the second over, the visitors 0 for 1. Elliot Haynes Sorrell joined Dan Horner, but he fell for 16, the visitors now 22 for 2. Jono Sparks joined Horner now, together the pair got their side on track, both players looked confident at the crease, they were in fine form, punishing anything short or wide, together they went on to see their side home in the 30th over, putting on 113 unbroken together, Kenilworth finishing on 135 for 2 to win comfortably by eight wickets. Dan Horner unbeaten on 62, his innings with 8 x 4, Sparks unbeaten on 46. Lawlor and Stephens with a wicket apiece for Griff.

Kenilworth take 20 points, staying in a comfortable mid table position with three games to go.

2nd XI v. Weoley Hill

WIN!!

On Saturday 18th August Kenilworth’s Second team hosted Birmingham outfit Weoley Hill for their Warwickshire Cricket League Division Seven fixture.

Weoley Hill chose to bat first and probably wished they hadn’t. After a steady opening stand, as openers Traford and Smith put on 37 for the first wicket, Traford making 19 and Smith making 17, but from 57 for 2, the visitors collapsed, 66 for 7 became 87 all out in just 31 overs, just the openers making double figures. Wicket takers for Kenilworth were Chris Beach with 4 for 20 from ten tidy overs, Theo Mannion with 3 for 8 and 3 for 19 for Tom Skinner as they caused havoc.

However, Kenilworth had a poor start in their reply, 4 for 1, then to 13 for 3 and 27 for 4. A partnership of 39 between Matt Casey and Jono Sparks for the fifth wicket, Sparks falling for 19, Kenilworth 66 for 5. Casey went on to see his side home with 42 not out, the home side ending on 89 for 6 in the 41st over to win by four wickets as Tom Anscombe 6* hit the winning runs to give the side relief after they had wobbled chasing the low score. Heneghan taking 3 for 18 from twelve overs for Weoley Hill.
Kenilworth take the full 24 points.
