Bournville Cricket Club


Wolvey v Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 16 Jul 2011 at 1.30pm
Match was Drawn (13 points)

Match report Bournville overcame a series of unfortunate events to get the better of a rain-affected draw with Wolvey, coming away with 13 vital points.

After a delayed start, Bournville fielded first in a 43 over contest, making early inroads with Richard Lloyd particularly impressive in his opening spell. Captain Alex Bullivant also collected two important early wickets with deceptive lack of pace. Jack White followed up Lloyd’s opening spell with an impressive burst collecting two wickets, including one with a superbly directed bouncer in a spell either side of a rain delay that reduced the match by a further nine overs.

Having already lost Sid Kookana before play, Bournville’s batting line up was dealt another blow as James Beech suffered a dislocated finger taking a catch in the deep of late replacement Steve de Polo in the last over of the innings. The visitors were left to chase 136 in 34 overs for outright victory and a target of 107 for a winning draw.

Following a positive opening partnership of 50 between Chris Curtis and Craig Thomas, a flurry of wickets sent nervous flutters through the makeshift batting line-up. Man-of-the-match Lloyd took on the responsibility to guide the innings, finishing on 32 not out as Bournville finished on 116-6. He and Steve de Polo briefly threatened to grab an outright victory as they passed the winning draw target but Bournville settled for thirteen points.
