Sunday ‘B’ XI v. Tanworth and Camp Hill
35 overs a side friendly
Tanworth and Camp Hill 214-6 beat Kenilworth 113-4 by 101 runs.
A strong Tanworth side were no match for the Kenilworth side and easily ran out 101 run winners in their match reduced to 35 overs a side after the game had been delayed for a hour as the roller broke down and became stuck on the wicket moments before the game was due to start!
Once it did, Tanworth’s Williams hit 53 as runs flowed then Andy Turnbull retired after hitting 78. George Deeley-Graham made 32 not out and Chahal 20 in the side’s huge total. Youngster Louis Smithson took a fine 2-27 from his bowling spell whilst there was a wicket apiece from Matt Dadswell, Dan Horner and veteran Andy Smith.
The young Tanworth bowling line up were frugal in conceding runs and Kenilworth were soon behind the run rate after falling to 26-3 and with it any chance of getting close to the target. Horner made 19 and Matt Dadswell 14 (hitting 3 powerful boundaries). Yet dad, Andy Dadswell, shone with the bat to hit his first half century of the season making 51 not out (8 boundaries) in a solid performance as the innings closed on a 113-4, a long way short of Tanworth’s score. There were wickets for Doige, Newell and Tonks.
