Bournville Cricket Club


Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI v Coventry Colliery on Sat 02 Jul 2011 at 1.30pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 4 wickets

Match report Bournville survived an early onslaught from Coventry Colliery's openers to record an excellent 20 point victory in the WCL Division three clash. Skipper Alex Bullivant's decision to field first was looking to be a misjudgment of Nasser Hussain proportions as Coventry Colliery raced to 88-0 from 11 overs before a wonderful team performance dragged the game back in Bournville's favour.

Bullivant picked up 6 wickets in tandem with a wonderful spell of 3-21 from Sid Kookana to help restrict Coventry Colliery to 179 all out, both bowlers showing the merits in bowling straight with a bit of movement. Only a 10th wicket partnership of 40 ensured that Bournville's victory target wasn't even lower.

After stumbling to 24-2, Man-of-the-match Kookana joined Chris Curtis at the crease as they counter attacked with a partnership of 64 to settle the home side’s nerves. Once Kookana departed for 41, James Beech contributed 38 to a responsible partnership of 63, helping Curtis pass fifty for the first time this season and the 2nd time in WCL 1st team cricket.

After a late wobble, Jack White continued his habit of scoring important runs to guide Bournville past their winning target, sparking wild celebrations that continued late in to the night.
