1st XI bounce back and 3’s remain unbeaten

1st XI Away vs Corley CC 1st XI

Winning the toss Kenilworth bowled first and found an early breakthrough hard to come by as Corley reached 50 unbeaten, albeit at a slow rate. Before change bowler Darius Potten-Ravenshad came on to remove the top 5 as the costs slumed from 60/0 to 88/5. Connor Shingler and Quinn Bungard then helping to mop up the tail as Kenilworth were set a target of 123 to win. Shingler finishing with economical 3/22 from his 10 overs, and Quinn finishing 2/6.

Top order runs setup the Kenilworth reply and secured the win, despite a small wobble with two wickets falling with scores level! Openers Sonu Kumar and joe Atkinson making 12 and 26 respectively before they were dismissed, Numbers 3&4 Quinn (31) and Dan Horner (28) also contributing to the chase without quite seeing it over the line, left to Connor Shingler (1*) and Adam Huxford (4*) to see Kenilworth home inside 22 overs.

1st XI take 20 points and climb to 3rd in the WCL Division 2.


2nd XI Home vs Rugby CC 3rd XI

The 2nd XI lost their unbeaten record as they were made to rue missed chances hosting Rugby.

Also winning the toss and electing to bowl, Kenilworth started strong as they were gifted a runout and some tidy bowling had rugby 6/2 early. Continuing to strike regularly, the visitors found themself 127/7 after impressive spells from Babu (1/14), Tom Skinner (2/33) and Matt Smith (2/39) were coupled with sharp fielding, however, a near hundred partnership for the 8th wicket put Rugby firmly in control as they finished 226/9 thanks to some organised batting and wayward Kenilworth bowling and fielding.

With a strong target to chase, Kenilworth also found themselves 6/2 early and never managed to regain momentum, with just Kev Tobin (24), Jono Sparks (22), Babu (20) and Tom Skinner (13*) making it to double figures, falling well short 113 all out in 26 overs.

Kenilworth earn 4 points, as they remain 2nd in the WCL Division 7 East.


3rd XI Home vs Southam CC 2nd XI

The 3rd XI outscored their best from last week, reaching 228/2.

Winning the toss and batting, Kenilworth continued where they left off last week as openers Peter Huxford (23) and Uma Shanker reached 60/ inside 10 overs. With no respite for Southam, Will Thompson continued his early form with a quickfire 42 followed by a sold 32* from Ben Cook. However it was opener Uma carrying his bat to finish 92* as the star of the innings. Calcutt taking both wickets for the visitors.

Kenilworth bowlers were also on song with Ed Smith (3/33) removing the top order and Matty Dadswell claiming his season best 4/15 from 9 overs. Ben Kelley, again, bowled well (2/21) with Will Thompson the other wicket taker. Kenilworth holding onto their chances and two smart stumpings for Andy Dadswell with the visitors bowled out for 120.

Kenilworth take 24 points for their win and move up to 2nd in the CHL division 5.
