Oakfield & Rowlands again proved too strong for the Kenilworth 2nds for the second time of the season in the WCCL South East Group C League match as their bowlers easily restricted the home side from threatening their score of 187-3 as Kenilworth fell 53 runs short.
O & R’s opener Randle made 85, Gowdy 30 not out and Harris 26 not out in their innings with Dave Gamble taking 2-37 and Shyaan Imam 1-18 for Kenilworth.
Kenilworth struggled against the accuracy of the Oakfield bowling attack finding runs hard to come by and they were soon behind the required run rate, despite a solid 41 from Dave Edmunds in his first game of the season, 27 from Mark Stranks, an unbeaten 31 from Sam Leach and 15 not out from Shyaan Imam. The side had to settle reaching only 134 for the loss of 5 wickets in their run chase that gave Oakfield a comfortable win. Randle took 2-21, Niles 1-25 and Oddwell 1-17 for the visitors.
