2’s frustrate Coleshill whilst the others lose

A tough Saturday for all 3 sides


Saturday 23rd. July

Another frustrating day for the three Kenilworth Saturday League sides – the best result being a losing draw for the 2nd. XI,  as the other two sides suffered defeats.




1st XI


Kenilworth v. Knowle & Dorridge 2’s

WCCL Division 1  – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose/Draw format


Kenilworth 204-6 (50 overs) (6 points) lost to Knowle & Dorridge 2’s 209-6 (43.5 overs) (20 points) by 4 wickets.

Connor Shingler’s fine 70 (7 x 4) was in vain for the Town side as they lost out by 4 wickets. They had posted 204-6 with Steve Rhodes hitting a 22 ball unbeaten 33 (3 x 4, 2 x 6 – one of which cleared the ball stop netting and landed in the Housing Development), Adie Sellar making 32 and Henry Curran  20), as wickets were shared around by the K & D bowlers with Patel taking 2-33. In reply. K & D’s Jake Simmons opening hit 51 and Isaac Maddy 39. The side wobbled at 138-6 until a 71 run unbeaten partnership between James Hughes 49 not out (8 x 4, 1x 6) and 25 not out (5 x 4) from Vidan Iyer saw them to 209-6 with relative ease, after Town’s Joe Atkinson had earlier taken 4-26 with a wicket apiece from Rhodes and Tom Skinner.



2nd. XI


Kenilworth v. Coleshill 1’s

WCCL Division 7 East – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose/Draw format


Coleshill 339-6 (50 overs) (16 points) drew with Kenilworth 188-6 (50 overs) (9 points).


Runs flowed as Coleshill posted a stiff 339-9, a score that the Town side were never going to chase down and settled on 188-6 to draw the match. Mahmood hit 91 (10 x 4, 2 x 6) for Coleshill with David Phillips chipping in with 63 (7 x 4, 2 x 6) and Sirjeed Mir 51 (4 x 4, 2 x 6) with the Town’s trio of Ed Smith, Joe Tate and Will Sheehan each taking two wickets whilst Josh Charlwood and Sam Davies took one a piece.  In reply, Town’s opener, Dave Edmunds made 63 (13 x 4), Danny Boneham 40 (7 x 4) and Mark Stranks 21 in their response as the side settled for a draw.



3rd. XI


Kenilworth v. Coventry Blues

Kenilworth 142-10 (36.1 overs) (4 points) lost to Coventry Blues 145-5 (28.4 overs) (19 points) by  5 wickets.


Table topping Coventry Blues restricted the Town 3’s to 142-10 and comfortably won with 11 overs and 5 wickets to spare as they reached 145-5. Town’s Sam Leach top scored for the side with 26 (5 x 4), Keeran Umashanker hit 24, whilst Ant Kerry and Will Thompson both made 16 but the quartet were the only ones to reach double figures as Deepak took 3-33, with a brace each for Mathew, Raj and Deltu. In reply, Blues batsmen all chipped in with Lineesh top scoring with 26, Mobin 24 not out and Raj 20 to reach their target with ease despite Rana taking 2-16 for the Town, Tom Best, Leach and Thompson a wicket each as Andy Dadswell took three catches behind the stumps.
