Bournville Cricket Club


Five Ways OE v Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 12 May 2012 at 1.30pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 76 runs

Match report Bournville 1st XI bounced back from the disappointment of defeat to gain maximum points against Five Ways Old Eds. With skipper Alex Bullivant managing to lose the toss twice, Bournville batted first and following the early loss of Spragg, Chris Curtis and Richard Lloyd put on 46 to give Bournville a solid platform. James Llewellyn came in at 5 and top scored with 46, playing responsibly while he got used to the conditions before opening his shoulders on a pitch and outfield that was proving difficult to hit boundaries on.

Although the innings disappointingly subsided to 142 all out, Bournville were confident of victory and got off to a superb start with Lloyd and Eddie Evans starting off with a wicket maiden each. Sadly, Evans was forced off with a back injury but skipper Bullivant made amends for his useless tossing abilities by carrying on where the opening bowlers had left off, using the significant indentations on a damp pitch to gain alarming lift at times, which according to cover fielder James Beech was "Ambrose-esque".

FWOE's 8th wicket pairing then went into safety-first mode, blunting the Bournville attack before Chris Curtis made the long-awaited breakthrough and soon after knocked Barnett's leg stump out of the ground to complete a fine individual day and triggering Bournville celebrations of an excellent victory.
