Bournville Cricket Club


Bournville Cricket Club 2nd XI v Ansley Sports on Sat 12 May 2012 at 1.30pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 186 runs

Match report FINALLY . . . Bournville managed to play their first competitive game back in Div 2 after weeks of the moist stuff had put pay to the weeks previous fixtures.

Ansley Sports won the toss and put Bournville in on a decent but slow wicket. This looked to be a good decision as Bournville were reduced from 34-0 to 50-4 in the space of 7 overs! Only Rob Perry making any contribution of note with 22. The mini collapse had though brought together new boy Mansoor and 'Mr Bournville' Feraz and they calmly 'steadied the ship' putting on 74 for the 5th wicket.

Bournville managed to maintain this momentum after 'drinks' and, with some woeful bowling from Ansley and despite the loss of further wickets, cruised towards maximum batting points. With 200 in site Mansoor gleefully celebrated his maiden century for the club. Well done Mansoor!

With the batting points secured and the Ansley attack well and truly quietened, the 6's and 4's began to rain down and the score quickly moved past the 250 mark. With the score on 267 and the Ansley bowlers looking well beaten, a nervous yet satisfying declaration came. A good fielding display and the points were as good as won.

Bournville opened up with Josh and Jangir. Some disciplined bowling from them both combined with some good fielding bore fruit as early wickets tumbled. With 5 down and the score barely past 60, Bournville turned the screw and called on perennial, Elma Fudd wanna-be's Ball and De Polo. With the smell of 'fwesh wabbit' in their nostrils, they polished off the Ansley tail in double quick time, 81AO in 31.2 overs.

A great performance by the team and a great way to 'blow away the cobwebs' from a longer than expected winter. Bournville move on to Solihull Municipal next week with a 24 points in the boot, a spring in their step and the promise of a good batting track.
