Match Report: Saturday 4ths vs Weoley Hill 3rds

Match Date: Saturday 18th May
Type: Warwickshire County Cricket League Division 11 West
Location: Court Lane
Report: Mo Salman, captain

Lost the toss and were sent to bat first on a very wet outfield at Court Lane. We got off to a slow start with wickets falling quite early. However, a strong partnership between Harry Wyatt (39) and Masud Ahmed (31) saw us put some runs on the board. Then came a spectacular display of batting from Alex Carey with a quick fire 18 to finish off the innings on 134 off our 45.

Myself and Rob Ellis opening the bowling and taking a wicket each in our opening spells and thanks to some tight fielding by the team, managed to apply some pressure early on. However, one of their opening batsmen managed to keep the scoreboard ticking to keep them in the chase until a juggling catch in the slips by Jack Patel off the bowling of Scott Pepper dismissed him on 32. Scott Pepper (3 for 20) and Alex Carey (3 for 27) bowled phenomenally to knock off the rest of the top order with Masud Ahmed coming in to take the final 2 off his 1.2 overs finishing their innings on 108 all out.

A fantastic performance in the field by the whole team, some very good fielding on display with some excellent catches being taken which played a key role in defending our total and winning us the game.
