Bournville Cricket Club


Rowland United v Bournville Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 18 Jun 2011 at 1.30pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 1 wicket

Match report A rain delayed game saw overs reduced to 46 per side. Bournville won toss and chose to bowl. As has been common in recent weeks, Bournville started slowly with the bowlers struggling to keep tight lines and length in the first 15 overs. Stephens was the exception to this, with another tight spell of 1 for 12.

Once the opening partnership was broken, wickets fell at regular intervals to de Polo and Naeem, and after a brief rain delay brought an early tea, the home side were swiftly bowled out for 115. An average performance in the field, with several dropped catches, captain Randle though batted well but ran out of support at the other end on a good batting surface.

Bournville's response was error strewn, frequently frustrating and featuring some of the most incompetent shot selection seen in the history of the game of cricket (Bracey...i am talking about you here...). Bournville in the end crawled over the finish line thanks to a last wicket partnership of 39. This illustrious partnership was typified by a level of graceful strokeplay, calm headed batting and sensible shot selection, sadly missing from the so called 'batsmen' in the top 7. As the players carried de Polo and Sanders on their shoulders chanting their names, Rowland were left to rue what might have been.

Either way, a tepid Bournville performance but a win all the same...bring on the derby!
