Bournville Cricket Club


Oakfield v Bournville Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 14 May 2011 at 1.30pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 49 runs

Match report Another week where we managed to come away with a 24 point victory despite playing poorly through most of the game.

Its reasonable to say that we entered division 3 with trepidation, unsure on the types of locations that might get thrown up to us. The answer apparently are Warwickshire outposts with sheds...and thats just Weoley Hill.

Oakfield provided a pub (positive), a nice pitch (mostly), an undulating but well kept outfield (which E Elliman found particularly difficult to fathom, throwing himself around it with abandon while seemingly unable to do so with any proximity to the cricket ball) and a shed. All in all though, not a bad setup and a cracking tea.

The game...won toss batted first scored 182 all out in 40 overs. Not the best. Positives:
- DJ, well composed and mature 40 where he dug in and helped us to a defendable total
- Rob Perry - outstanding 33. Rob and DJ put on 38 for the 8th wicket in 5 overs. Proper cricket shots, no slogging and a shame he couldn't kick on to 50.
- Janghir - some very fine shooting cruelly deprived of further runs by the batting inadequacy of SdP

Their innings - its fair to say we pulled it back from a pretty poor start. Oakfield were able to accumulate more runs than they deserved in large part due to our inability to bowl at the stumps with most of the bowlers contributing many wides (33 in total...).

However the rain breaks appeared to help Bournville as they steadily accumulated wickets until it became clear, Oakfield could only achieve a losing draw at best. Good pressure bowling from Cherry, Stevens and de Polo, left Jangir to rattle out the bunny's...

Long drive back to Bournville felt much better with a win...
