K & D far too strong for the Seconds

2nds second best again

The Seconds were again second best in their second League match of the season after managing to post only 108 all out at Knowle and Dorridge who reached 109-3 with 20 overs to spare.

James Adamson was Kenilworth’s top scorer with 27, whilst Ant Kerry made 24, Jae Naik 13 and James Sparks 11 but they were the only batsmen to make double figures as Ghanekar took 3-16, Barnett 3-22 and Butler 2-3 as he wrapped up the Kenilworth innings.

Al Barnett 38 not out  guided  K & D to a very easy  7 wicket win after Ward had made 25 and Craven 12. Ian Baker took 1-13, Ali Peebles 1-9 and Naik 1-40 for Kenilworth.

Seconds second best

2nds suffer despite Phil Edmonds’ bowling

Only spinner, Phil Edmonds had anything to smile about as he snapped up a tidy 6-52 off his 15 overs for Kenilworth in their opening Division 2 2nd XI match of the season in the Warwickshire Cricket League as the side slumped to a crushing 208 run defeat at the hands of Lyndworth.

The visitors set a very stiff target posting 266-9 off their 50 overs as Afzal hit 70, Ahmed 63 and number 10, Waqas unbeaten on 38. Kenilworth toiled under the aggressive batting onslaught with only Edmonds to offer any resistance with his wily off spin. Jaesh Naik and Ian Baker were the only other Kenilworth bowlers to claim a wicket apiece.

In reply, Kenilworth were soon in trouble against a pacy attack. Only opener Tom Booker reached double figures reaching 14 before he fell and the side collapsed and were quickly skittled out for a paltry 58. Number 11 colt, Jonathan Mortlock, was the side’s unbeaten batsman on 8 not out in a day to forget about for them. Hussain took 6-11, Naesu 2-2 and Sajjad 2-29 for victorious Lyndworth.

1st XI start the season off with a win

In form Goodman warms up

Neil Goodman was the star performer on show at our Warwick Road ground with the bat as he led Kenilworth 1st XI  to a 7 wicket victory over Norton Lindsey in the first 40 over a side friendly warm up match of the season. Chasing Norton’s total of  205-8, Goodman  hit a most classy and unbeaten 113*. He put on 145 runs for the third wicket with skipper, Dave Edmunds, who fell after making 55, of which he hit 5 boundaries and a six but Goodman’s impressive hard hitting innings saw him hit 7 boundaries and 7 sixes. Earlier, Norton had Fell with 86, McInnes 34* and Smith 28 to thank for posting a challenging score but the Norton innings had been pegged back with the introduction of the youthful Kenilworth spinning duo of Phil Edmonds who took 3-28 and Jaesh Naik  with 4-39 whilst newbie, Jorjeet Singh, claimed 1-16 off 6 overs on his debut for the Club.  Yet, the day deservedly belonged to Goodman as he secured victory for Kenilworth with 19 balls to spare when he dispatched the ball over the ropes for a six and the side romped past the winning post at a canter.

14/09/2013: Saturday 1st XI v Bedworth

Kenilworth Win

The 1st XI cemented their Warwickshire Cricket League Premier Division status in their final game of the season with a thrilling 13 run win as they bowled out Bedworth for 151 thanks to a sublime bowling spell from Tom Pope who ended the day with 3-25 taking the final two wickets in the match to fall. Bedworth were strolling to victory on 109-2 with 18 overs in hand chasing Kenilworth’s score of 164 as Iles hit 51 and Jakeman 46 before Pope was re-introduced and along with Jae Naik they made crucial breakthroughs to swing the game Kenilworth’s way. Naik picked up 2-24 after paceman Charlie Leonard had earlier taken 3-36 and Gregg Peebles 1-33. Batting first, Kenilworth slumped to 63-5 after being 57-0 but a 73 run 6th wicket partnership between Peebles 47 and Guy Pearson 35 gave the side’s score some respectability. Dave Edmunds had chipped in with 35, James Nason 15 and Mike Watts 13 not out in the side’s total as Luke Jones took 4-30, James Syres 3-26, Ryan Oldham 2-54 and Jason Jakeman 1-24 for Bedworth. A solid bowling and dogged fielding performance by Kenilworth proved to be the difference as Bedworth were bowled out with 5 overs remaining to give Kenilworth the 24 points and end a highly competitive season on a high note which will see the Club in Premier Division for 2014.

07/09/2013: Saturday 1st XI v Sutton Coldfield

Losing Draw

Relegation-threatened Kenilworth kept their survival hopes alive after gaining a draw in a rain affected clash at Warwickshire League Premier Division champions Sutton Coldfield on Saturday. Sutton, who were invited to bat first, totalled 284 for 5 in their 50 overs with opener Mark Guest hitting a fine 102. John Klapper 51no and Lee Thomason 45 offered good support in what proved a torrid afternoon for the Kenilworth bowlers. Jaesh Naik was the most successful by returning 3-104, while fellow slow bowler Ed Ruswa 1-52 and paceman Tom Pope 1-72 shared the other wickets to fall. Kenilworth reached 12 for 1 after five overs in reply when rain forced the players off the field. Play resumed with just 20 overs remaining and Kenilworth faced a revised target of 144 to gain the lions share of the points. James Nason 50 and Chris Prophet 38 blasted 80 off ten overs, while skipper Dave Edmunds chipped in with 21 to leave Kenilworth well placed at 123 for 2, needing 21 runs off the final three overs. But pace bowler Aaron Thomason delivered an inspired spell to claim four wickets for just two runs and leave the visitors on 132 for 6. Kenilworth entertain Bedworth in their final game on Saturday knowing victory will ensure they avoid the drop.
