Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI v Solhull Municipal 2nd XI on Sun 10 Jun 2012 at 2.00pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 72 runs

Match report Another fine win and 24 points for Bournville's Sunday XI to leave them sat 12 points clear at the top of the league. Captain DJ Budden continued his fine streak by winning the toss and batting, and Edgehill set about in a restrained manner to build an innings before attacking after drinks to score 45. Jack White joined Edgehill after Townend was bowled, to score a dashing 28 before chipping to mid on to bring Beech to the crease who batted well to show signs of his old self to score 31, but was then trapped lbw. Cameo's from Busby, Budden, Cherry and Nigel White helped Bournville to a very good score of 187-8 from their 40 overs.

Bournville went out into the field with the confidence they could replicate form of recent weeks and bowl the opposition out to secure another win. However, the Municipal top order set their stall out to defend their way through 40 overs, and although Cherry got a soft breakthrough inbetween the wides, Municipal found themselves 50-1 at the halfway point leaving neither side with much chance of victory, and a slow 20 overs to stagnate to an eventual draw. After plenty of bowling changes, Jack White was reintroduced after drinks to strike with his first ball, which started the steady flow of wickets. Beech was then brought into the attack and the 2 formed a formidable partnership with Beech picking up 3-25 off his 8 overs and Jack White a superb 4-27 from his 8. Bournville then required 2 wickets to win the game in the last 8 overs, and Bullivant returned to pick up the 2 wickets required with a gentle catch to Nigel White to win the game at silly mid on to spark the celebrations.

Bournville travel to second placed Sheldon Marlborough next week in the hope they can extend their lead at the top of the Division 1 North table.
