1st. XI v. Standard
Standard 222-10 (44.1 overs) beat Kenilworth 93-10 (25 overs) by 125 runs (DL method)
The Club’s 1st XI travelled to Standard in their 45 overs a side League match only to be heavy 125 run losers in a rain affected match as the DL method was applied.
Standard were bowled out for 222 in their last over of their innings as Will Hawker hit an impressive 77 whilst Tom Kidd chipped in with 27, Miller 22, Vaughan 22 and Leybourne 21 in a solid team batting performance. Darius Potten-Ravenshad was the pick of the Town’s bowlers taking 4-40 from his spell, whilst youngster Jono Sparks took 2-32, Joe Atkinson 2-34 and Connor Shingler 1-23.
Kenilworth lost early wickets and then a few overs to the rain. Wickets continued to fall in the reduced run chase but were out of sorts. Matt Casey made 23, Tom Booker 20 and Stuart Cope 12 but they were the only batters to reach double figures as the side were skittled out for 93 in 25 overs. Kidd took 4-38 Patel 3-16 and the Fox brothers both 1-24 in a very comfortable win for the hosts.
