Bournville Cricket Club Midweek XI v Solihull Municipal 1st XI on Wed 23 May 2012 at 6.00pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 2 runs

Match report A tense, but stunning victory for Bournville's Midweek XI in their first game this season. Having being inserted, Bournville started well with Edgehill and Curtis putting on 39 for the first wicket. During the middle overs the boundaries were hard to come by consistently, but Rob Perry's 48 not out was the main innings which Llewellyn (20) and Lynch (22) could bat around, which led Bournville to a score of 146-5 off their 15 overs, possibly 20 runs short on a good pitch.

Bournville set about defending their total well, with Jack White bowling brilliantly first up, including a wicket maiden in his 3-1-15-1. The pressure was kept up with some fine fielding and catches from Farrington and Lynch, to go with a run out for Edgehill. The runs kept flowing and it came down to needing 14 off the last over to be bowled by Curtis. 2 fours were hit and a dubious wide given to make it 3 runs needed from the last ball of the match, but Curtis kept his nerve as Orsler smacked the ball to Jack White at long on who took a superb catch in very dark conditions to cue wild celebrations for the Bournville team.
