Thirds lose out in their local derby

Asked to bat first, Wardens made a fast start, with skipper Casey and his partner Reid,  on 60 for the first wicket in only eight overs before Casey fell to catch behind by Andy Dadswell off seamer Pete Alty for 38. His wicket only inspired the home side, number three Johnson smashing the visitors bowling to all parts. The introduction of young seamer James Sparks slowed the scoring down, and he claimed the wicket of Reid for 41, and went on to claim the wicket of Johnson thanks to a fine catch from Ben Maney on the long on boundary, but not before the batsmen smashed a fine century, falling for 106.

Wicket takers for the visitors were James Sparks with 2 for 33 from six tidy overs, Pete Alty 1 for 67 from eight overs and a run involving Matt Dadswell and Andy Dadswell.

After the tea interval, the Kenilworth openers Geoff Hay and Uma Shanker set about the task of chasing down the huge target, but visitors Kenilworth were soon in dire trouble, slipping to 29 for 3 then 39 for 5.  Skipper Sam Leach joined Ben Maney at the crease, a much needed partnership was now desperately needed, the set about putting bat to ball, both players played aggressive cricket shots, mixed with a solid defence, with rain now starting to fall, both batsmen made batting look easy, Maney fell to a sharp catch behind off his glove for 47, falling just short of a deserved fifty, the pair putting a superb 115 for the sixth wicket. Leach went on to record his fifty soon after, he kept playing his shots before falling in the last over for a personal best score of 88, his innings containing 13 x 4’s.
Kenilworth finished just short of full batting points on 199 for 9 off their forty five overs. Mills with 3 for 31 off ten overs and Johnson 2 for 7 taking the bowling honours for the Wardens, as the home side ran out winners by 112 runs. Kenilworth take six points for their efforts.
