Sunday XI v. Himbleton
40 overs a side Friendly
Himbleton 170-7 (40 overs) lost to Kenilworth 172-0 (33.2 overs) by 10 wickets
Kenilworth’s openers Dan Horner and Shyaan Imam were in dazzling form as they put on a superb unbroken 172 run 1st. wicket partnership together in the Sunday XI’s match against Himbleton to guide the side to a 10 wicket win.
Horner hit an unbeaten 97 in a classy innings that saw him hit 7 boundaries and run 20 two’s in his confident knock, whilst recently turned 15 years old, Imam, hit a quality 56 not out in which he hit 5 boundaries and ran 6 two’s showing his future potential and maturity in Senior cricket.
Earlier, Himbleton had posted 170-7 off their 40 overs thanks to their opener, Corlett, hitting a powerful 82, Tanner an unbeaten 32 and Arnold 17 with Kenilworth’s Dan Roden snapping up 3-35 off his 8 overs with his leg spin, whilst Matt Dadswell, Sam Leach and Charlie Stranks each took a wicket apiece. Horner also took a catch and made two stumpings behind the sticks.
However, Himbleton’s total proved to be too little as Horner and Imam put on a superb and chanceless batting display together as the pair reached the target with some 6 overs to spare with their quality knocks frustrating the luckless Himbleton bowlers with their batting prowess.
