Always another day ……..
Saturday 30th. April
It was a double defeat for the two Kenilworth sides in their Warwickshire Cricket League matches on Saturday.
Kenilworth v. Handsworth
WCCL Division 1 – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose format
KENILWORTH LOST BY 3 WICKETS
Kenilworth 102-10 (36.1 overs) (3 points) lost to Handsworth 103-7 (29.1 overs) (20 points) by 3 wickets.
On a day where the bowlers were on top for both sides, Kenilworth found runs hard to come by and were skittled out for 102 inside 37 overs with only Connor Shingler 22 and skipper Joe Atkinson 17 posting double figure scores as Bevon Brown took 5-16, Clement Smith 3-16 and Recordo Gordon 2-22 for Handsworth as they ripped through the Town side’s line up. Handsworth equally struggled with the bat in their run chase as Atkinson took 3-17, Steve Rhodes 2-46 and Stuart Cope 1-21 but they reached 103-7 with plenty of overs in hand after Keiron Buchanan set the visitors on the road to victory hitting 22 and condemning Kenilworth to their second successive defeat.
Kenilworth v. Fillongley
WCCL Division 7 East – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose format
KENILWORTH LOST BY 4 WICKETS.
Kenilworth 178-10 (48.3 overs) (4 points) lost to Fillongley 179-6 (42.3 overs) (20 points) by 4 wickets.
Despite posting 178 with youngster Joe Tait hitting his maiden League half century with a fine 57 not out (7 x 4), Kenilworth came second best as Fillongley reached 179-6 with 6 overs in hand. Shyaan Imam 28 and Uma Umashanker 26 put on 46 runs for the Town’s first wicket whilst Gareth Knights added 20 in the Town’s total with Tarry 4-13 and Gardener 3-26 – the pick of the Fillongley bowlers. The hosts comfortably reached their target after Dillon hit 58 and Clifford 33 after Josh Charlwood had taken 3-58 for the Town with Imam, Louis Smithson and Sam Leach also picking up a wicket a piece but their efforts were in vain.
