Knowle & Dorridge v Bournville Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 04 Jun 2011 at 1.30pm
Bournville Cricket Club Lost by 4 wickets

Match report Bournville's unbeaten run came to an end at Knowle and Dorridge as they succumbed to a 4 wicket defeat in a game that went to the final over.

Having won the toss and chosen to bat, Bournville amassed 212 off their 50 overs, thanks to an excellent innings of 69 from Spragg. Good contributions from Perry, Green and late cameo's from Edgehill and Ball helped Bournville to a strong total, but in truth it was probably just shy of the 220+ that may have been par on an excellent wicket and outfield. In this respect credit deserves to go to Moore and Gover who bowled well for K&D.

In response, K&D got off to an excellent start thanks to their 2 young openers (especially Whittington) who exploited Bournville's opening bowlers who struggled to find the right length to bowl. This changed when Janghir who was the pick of Bournville's bowlers, got the first wicket. The following ball to new batsman Moore was a cracker that may have taken an edge but was not given. After that moment Moore was excellent and took the game away from Bournville, leading them home and a good innings of 85 not out (although not before being dropped on 49!)

An excellent 2nd spell from Evans and then Jangir, brought Bournville back into the game and into a tense final over, but in the end K&D were deserved winners.

Bournville were left to rue some dropped catches and some wayward bowling, but in truth, an excellent wicket probably needed slightly more than the 212 scored. However some more accurate length bowling and some better catching may have made a difference. Some elements to improve on next week!
