No joy for the 3 Club sides
Saturday 27th. August.
Another disappointing set of results for the three Kenilworth Saturday League sides as they all suffered defeats in their win/lose format of matches.
Kenilworth v. Streetly
WCCL Division 1 – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose format
LOST BY 236 RUNS
Streetly 346-7 (50 overs) (20 points) beat Kenilworth 110-10 (20.2 overs) (3 points) by 236 runs.
Streetly were duly crowned the Division 1 champions as they thumped Kenilworth by 236 runs leaving their own Division 1 status on a knife edge, with just two games remaining.
Streetly posted a match winning 346-7 from their 50 overs faced thanks to their keeper Neil Curtis hitting 159 (16 x 4, 8 x 6) and Mohammad Daniyaal 80 (8 x 4, 1 x 6) as the pair put on 236 runs together for the side’s 2nd. wicket. Akhbar Ahmed then chipped in with 34 off 17 balls as the luckless Town bowlers toiled away. Yet, Darius Potten-Ravenshad took 3-75 for the Town, whilst Joe Atkinson claimed 2-55 and Connor Shingler 2-80. In reply, the Town side were then unable to cope with the pace attack from Streetly’s Yahiya Khan and Junaid Khan as they lost 5 wickets for no runs with the score static on 22. They then fell to 25-7 and 43-8 with 5 Town batsmen falling for a duck before a 9th. wicket partnership of 62 runs between Dave Smithson 39 not out and 30 from number 10, Potten-Ravenshad, saw the side reach three figures. Stuart Cope had earlier made 16 but they were only three batsmen to reach double figures. Kenilworth were bowled out for 110 in the 21st. over after Yahiya had ripped through the side taking 6-41 from 10 overs and Junaid 3-19 from his 5 overs in a very one sided match that saw Streetly win the Division and leaves the Town side in the relegation zone. They must now win next week’s crucial match at home against third bottom placed Nuneaton for any chance of Division 1 survival.
Kenilworth v. Leamington Khalsa
WCCL Division 7 East – 50 overs a side – Win/Lose format
LOST BY 101 RUNS
Leamington Khalsa 267-10 (48.1 overs) (20 points) beat Kenilworth 166-10 (45.3 overs) (5 points) by 101 runs.
Leamington Khalsa proved too strong for the Town 2’s as they posted 267-10 and then bowled Kenilworth out for 166 to win comfortably by 101 runs. Khalsa’s Deepal Neema hit 51, Ranjith Busireddy 47, Vishu Wadekar 37 and Majid Ali 31 as all batsmen made starts. Town’s Sam Davies was the pick of the Town’s bowlers taking 3-27, Sam Leach 3-50, Will Sheehan 2-38 with a wicket a piece for Tom Best and Geoff Edmunds. Replying, Town’s Dan Horner and Josh Charlwood both hit 25 against a tight Khalsa bowling attack who restricted the side to 86-6 and well behind the required run rate required. Number 7 Sam Leach and Sam Davies added 55 runs together for the 7th. wicket with Leach making a half century 50 (7 x 4) and Davies 15 but their efforts were in vain as the Town side were bowled out in the 46th. over for 166 as Atol took 3-23, Mandeep 3-38 and Singh 2-24 for Khalsa.
Kenilworth v. Kenilworth Wardens 4th. XI
CHL Division 4 North – 40 overs a side – Win/Lose format
LOST BY 38 RUNS
Kenilworth Wardens 4’s 223-10 (39.2 overs) (21 points) beat Kenilworth 185-8 (40 overs) (9 points) by 38 runs.
Wardens won by 38 runs in the clash of the two Kenilworth clubs. They posted 223 thanks to a 1st. wicket opening partnership of 127 runs from Morgan Jones 66 and Jacob Malayapuram 41. Matthew Johnson then added 31 as Town’s Ben Kelley took 3-32, Dan Hone 3-37 with James Sparks claiming 2-26 and Matt Dadswell 2-42. There were 4 catches taken by Town’s Tarun Ahuja. In reply, already relegated Town’s Mark Wisdish hit a fine 53 (6 x 4, 1 x 6), Hone 33 (5 x 4) whilst Dadswell made an unbeaten 30 (4 x 4, 1 x 6) and Ahuja 18 but their efforts were not enough and the side had to settle on 185-8 at the close of play some 38 runs short of the Wardens total for whom Alex Waters took 3-20 and Johnson 2-19.
