Too few runs to defend

2nd XI v. Barby

 

On Saturday 2nd September, Kenilworth’s Second Team travelled to Barby for their Warwickshire Cricket League Division Seven fixture.

Choosing to bat first, Kenilworth got off to bad start, losing both openers with the score on twelve, but number three Elliott Haynes-Sorrell and number four James Alty began to recover their sides innings, the pair batting sensibly together, Alty was dismissed for 24, the pair added 77 for the third wicket, but Alty’s wicket sparked a collapse for the visitors, Haynes-Sorrell top scoring with 46, but at 104 for 6 they slumped to 113 for 8 and finally were all out for 127 in the 49th over.

For Barby, Knobs took an impressive 4 for 21 from twelve overs.

The home side made a solid start to their reply, openers Craven and Joe putting on 47 for the first wicket, Craven making a solid 30 for his side.

Spin twin elders Chris Beach with 2 for 21 from eleven overs and skipper Geoff Edmunds who took 1 for 34 off ten overs bowled well for the visitors, the pair keeping the home side’s reply in check, but Knobs was to have a fine game for his side, adding an unbeaten 33 to his four wickets earlier in the day. There was a wicket too for KCC’ s young Will Machin, 1 for 11. Catches for Sam Leach, Ben Maney and James Alty supported the bowlers well in the field, but Barby were to run out winners on the day by six wickets, finishing on 128 for 4 in the thirty eighth over.

Kenilworth finish their season at Attleborough on Saturday 9th.

Ramblers rue the rain!

Sunday XI v. Coventry Ramblers

On Sunday 20th August, Kenilworth hosted Coventry Ramblers in a forty overs a side friendly.

The visitors won the toss and decided to bat first and their opening pair of Stone (16) and Sharma put on 35 for the first wicket, before Stone was trapped lbw by Matt Casey (1 for 48). That wicket bought Hopkins to the crease and he put on  54 for the second wicket with Sharma before he was bowled for 33 by Max Howard (2 for 31).

At 115 for 3, Sharma was joined by Couzins and  the pair put on 57 for the fourth wicket, before Couzins was lbw for 25 off Charlie Stranks, the first four wickets for Stranks and he wet onto finish with 4 for 40 from seven overs. With the fall of Couzen’s wicket, the visitors slumped to 173 for 6 then 191 for 7. Sharma fell to young Will Machin for a fine 82 to one of three catches for Ben Whidborne.

There were late runs for Thomas with 21 and Stuart Hall with 14 as they got the Ramblers to 222 all out in the 38th over. Matt Dadswell took the final two wickets to fall to finish with decent figures of 2 for 21.

After the players returned from tea, the Kenilworth opening pair Danny Boneham and Nathan Chant went out to start the home side’s reply but the early loss of Boneham for six, then Elliott Haynes-Sorrell for five,  the home side were left in trouble at 20 for 2. Three more wickets fell quickly and at 23 for 5, staring at inevitable defeat, the home side were indebted to the weather. With the rain getting harder, the players left the pitch, with Kenilworth struggling at 30 for 5, both teams were unable to return onto the field.

The match was abandoned after only eleven overs of Kenilworth’s reply, saving the day for the side and denying the Ramblers seeing the match to a winning conclusion for them. Instead, it was the rain that won.

Wicket takers for the Ramblers were Tom Hall with 3 for 18 off five overs and Butler with 2 for 10 off six overs.

 

2nds hang in there

2nd XI v. Solihull Municipal

On Saturday 29th August, Kenilworth’s second team travelled to play Solihull Municipal away for their Warwickshire Cricket League Division Seven fixture.

Municipal were asked to bat first and seamer Ryan Bull struck in the first over, as the home side were 6 for 1. However, the early loss didn’t affect the home side as opener Bissett with a solid 51 and number three Lewis with 39 added 90 for the second wicket in eighteen overs. Yet, two more quick wickets had the home side in a spot of bother at 109 for 4 then 162 for 7.

Spin was doing the damage, with the trio of Chris Beach with 2 for 47 from twelve overs, Charlie Stranks 2 for 39 also from twelve overs and young Tom Skinner taking 2 for 44, along with seamer Ryan Bull who 2 for 40 from ten overs, added to with two smart run outs, the home side were eventually all out for 198 in the 48th over.

Kenilworth, too, lost a wicket in the first over of their innings. After a rain delay for twenty minutes, their innings was reduced to 48 overs.

Kenilworth were finding it hard to get keep the scoreboard moving and never threatened to pull off the win, as only Elliott Haynes-Sorrell with 28, Ben Maney 14 and a cameo 19 from Chris Beach got a double figure score.

Young Matt Dadswell with 9 and Ryan Bull 2 not out, batted through twelve overs together, until Dadswell was out with three overs left, Bull and Tom Skinner 4 not out saw their side to 110 for 8 off their forty eight overs to grind out a losing draw.

There were wickets for Hands who took 3 for 19 off twelve overs and Aziz taking 2 for 30  for Solihull Municipal, Kenilworth taking 6 points for their efforts.

 

Young guns keep on firing!

U-17’s v. Exhall & Wickford U-17’s

Kenilworth’s U17 side hosted their Exhall & Wixford counterparts on a sunny Tuesday 15th August evening in their Cotswold Hills U-17 Cricket League fixture.

Home skipper Elliott Haynes-Sorrell opted to bat first and opening batsmen Nathan Chant along with Max Howard made a careful start to their side’s innings but after Howard was dismissed for 19, captain Haynes-Sorrell strode to the crease and he soon set about increasing the tempo. He and Chant got the score to 90 before Haynes-Sorrell was caught for a hard hitting 47, his innings containing two big sixes. Chant went on to finish 30 not out, and along with Will Machin, Kenilworth finished on 116 for 2 from their 15 eight ball overs.

The Exhall reply had an early set back, as seamer Ryan Bull struck with a wicket in his second over, together with a tidy three over spell at the other end, the home side restricted the visitors to only twenty in the first five overs.

Opener and captain Ward and along with McAdam, the pair started to get Exhall & Wickford back in the game but Jack Markgraf removed McAdam for 29. A wicket next ball put the home side back on track, followed by a wicket too for his brother Sam Markgraf (1 for 13) and another for Jack Markgraf who had excellent figures of 3 for 12.

With Exhall needing 27 off the last over, even with the best efforts of Ward (38), Bull bowling him with the final ball 2 for 23 from his three overs, the visitors ended on 108 for 6 from their 15 overs. Kenilworth winning an entertaining game by 8 runs, the U-17 side keeping their 100% record going.

 

The Young Sunday XI march on

Sunday XI v. Leek Wootton

On Sunday 13th August, Kenilworth made the “long” road trip to play neighbours Leek Wootton for a forty overs a side friendly.

With plenty of blue sky and a good forecast, Kenilworth’s newest captain Elliott Haynes-Sorrell chose to bat first after winning the toss. He and his opening partner Nathan Chant strode to the crease, but with only 13 on the board, Chant was removed via a smart caught and bowled from Farndon and then two more quickly followed including captain Haynes-Sorrell for 18, leaving the visitors in a spot of bother at 28 for 3 then 43 for 4.

Charlie Stranks batting at four, led the fightback, making a solid 36. When Stranks was dismissed, someone needed to bat some overs and get a score to defend, that man was Darius Potten-Ravenshad. He went on to bat sensibly and with young thirteen year old Will Machin, the pair began to get Kenilworth out of trouble. Machin fell for a very good first senior innings of 16, whilst Potten-Ravenshad continued to be the glue in his sides innings, before finally being last man out in the last over for 46, his innings containing one four, as Kenilworth posted 141 all out.

Wicket takers for Leek Wootton were Farndon with 4 for 19, Hammett 2 for 20 and Clifford with 2 for 21, as the both sets of players and officials headed off for a well deserved tea.

When the sides returned after the tea interval, the home side made a disastrous start in their pursuit of 142 to win, as opening bowlers Matt Casey with 1 for 6 off six and Matt Dadswell with 2 for 8 also off six overs, reduced Wootton to 15 for 3.

Things didn’t improve for the hosts, as young Will Machin replaced Casey at the far end and was soon amongst the wickets with a three wicket burst in three overs  that reduced the home side to 23 for 6, Machin having fine figures of 3 for 19 from five very tidy overs.

The Wootton captain Budd, batting at eight tried to counter attack until he holed out to Sam Leach on the boundary for 30 off Charlie Stranks (1 for 16) – one of three smart catches for vice captain Leach in the outfield. Farndon with 11 was the only other double figures scorer for Wootton, as they were eventually all out for 83 in the 28th over as spinner Tom Skinner (1 for 16), and Darius Potten-Ravenshad took the final two wickets, to cap a fine day for him with 2 for 8 and complete a 58 run win for the visitors, as another win is chalked up for Kenilworth’s youngsters in their fine Sunday season.
