Young Freddie stars in side’s defeat

2nd XI v. Barby

On Saturday 27th May, Kenilworth ‘s second team hosted Barby for their Warwickshire Cricket League Division Seven fixture.

Barby chose to bat first but lost early wickets at 18 for 2 and then 47 for 3, as young opening bowlers Ryan Bull and Freddie Davies got amongst the visiting batsmen. Barby number five Franks held his side’s innings together with a solid 62 but Kenilworth stuck to their task in the field and restricted the visitors to 184 for 9 from their fifty overs. Dan Horner and Nathan Chant took two smart catches, as the fielders back up some fine bowling, with Ryan Bull 2 for 34 off eleven overs, Freddie Davies 2 for 23 off ten overs, spinners Geoff Edmunds 1 for 33 off twelve overs , Chris Beach 1 for 49 off twelve overs and seamer Jack Howard with 1 for 49 doing the bowling honours.
Kenilworth’s reply didn’t start well, and were soon struggling at 32 for 2, 62 for 5 and then 75 for 7, until young all-rounder Freddie Davies, batting at six, played another very impressive innings for his side. He was  left stranded on 49 not out, as Kenilworth were eventually all out for a disappointing 114 in only 32 overs.  Nathan Chant with 23 was the only other batsman with a score of note. Gurane with 4 for 31 and Silay 3 for 16 were to prove too good for the home side’s batsmen in the end, as Barby ended up the winners by 70 runs.
Barby 184-9 (24 points)  Kenilworth 114-10 (4 points).

Whirlwind win at Wootton

Midweek XI v. Leek Wootton


Kenilworth made the long trip to play Leek Wootton on a barmy early summer’s evening for a mid week twenty overs a side bash.

After winning the toss and electing to bat first, host Leek Wootton never got to grips with Kenilworth’s bowling and wickets tumbled almost every over  as they were shot out for a paltry 33 in only 13 overs.
Wickets were shared around with 2 for Tom Skinner, 2 for Nathan Chant, a wicket for Jack Howard and the guile of keeper/batsman and now bowler Dan Horner, to show his all round prowess.
So, Kenilworth set off in pursuit of the 34 needed by losing a wicket first ball of their innings, whoops and then another wicket goes, suddenly Kenilworth’s other batsmen are frantically trying to pad up but  a flurry of fours from the bat of Chris Prophet and Kenilworth are home in only five overs, finishing on 34 for 3 and the victors by seven wickets.

Wanderers win at a canter

Sunday XI v. Wanderers


On Sunday 21st May, Kenilworth hosted Leicestershire side Wanderers in a forty overs a side friendly.

Choosing to bat first, Kenilworth were soon in trouble at 18 for 2 and 44 for 4 as the home side found scoring runs hard. A further collapse of home wickets left them teetering on the brink at 85 for 9 off thirty three overs. Only a late cameo of 28 not out from Jack Howard batting at number nine with his last wicket partnership with old timer Andy Smith put on 33 runs – the highest of the innings helped the home side limp to 118 all out in the last over after a patient 19 from Nathan Chant, 13 each from Danny Boneham and Jorjeet Singh. Divyesh with 3 for 6, Paresh 2 for 16 and Ketel with 2 for 24 proving to be too good for Kenilworth’s batsmen.
The Wanderers openers got the visitors off to a flying start, putting on 85 for the first wicket in only fourteen overs until veteran slow bowler Andy Smith (1 for 26) removed Sukih for an aggressive 45, but his opening partner Tahir with 42 not out and number three Dev with 19 not out saw their side home with nineteen overs in hand, finishing on 121 for 1. Wanderers the winners by nine wickets.
