Bournville Cricket Club


Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI v Wishaw on Sat 19 May 2012 at 1.30pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 3 wickets

Match report A superb all-round performance from Mansoor Amin guided Bournville to the second successive victory in the WCL. Mansoor shared in an excellent unbeaten 8th wicket partnership of 90 with wicketkeeper Deejay Budden as Bournville recovered from 80-7 to secure a 20 point victory.

Skipper Alex Bullivant won the toss and elected to field, taking a couple of wickets in an economic first spell. Mansoor came on first-change from the Scorebox End and bowled an excellent economic spell to keep the pressure on Wishaw. Bullivant then reaped the rewards of the earlier pressure built up by the Bournville bowlers to finish with 7-34 as Wishaw collapsed to 169 all out.

Rob Perry and Neil Spragg got Bournville off to a serene start as Bournville reached 42-0 but Perry’s dismissal was the first in a hat-trick for Hipkiss and when James Llewellyn fell in the following over, Bournville were 44-4. Mansoor joined Neil Spragg to help steady the ship and quieten the buoyant Wishaw fielders before 3 more quick wickets brought Deejay Budden to the crease at 80-7. The partnership began to develop and as Mansoor began to unfurl some fine maximums, the home side began to sense victory with those on the sidelines ensuring they didn’t move seats in order to avoid jinxing the partnership. With 5 overs to spare, Budden hit the winning runs sparking wild celebrations in the home dressing room.

The victory sent Bournville to 2nd place in Division 3 of the WCL and the first XI now have a break from action until 2nd June when they travel to top-of-the-table Corley.
