Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI v City Gas 2nd XI on Sun 05 Aug 2012 at 2.00pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 6 wickets

Match report Bournville went into this game knowing that a winning draw would be enough to secure the league title. Captain Budden won the toss and decided to bowl with some rain about and the bowlers quickly got into their stride. Bullivant took the first wicket with a catch taken well in the Gully by the returning Jon Stephens. Bracey chipped in with a wicket as well as Bullivant gaining another, with Jack White clinging onto a difficult chance diving forward at cover point. White also managed to drop 3 catches in the same position off the same bowler, much to Bullivant's disgust. Imran Ashiq then came on to take a wicket first ball, and proceeded to take 5-25 off his 8 overs, with Vashi taking 2 wickets thanks to Rob Perry, who kept impressively, with 2 sharp stumpings. City Gas were bowled out for 85 meaning Bournville would need 86 to be crowned champions.

Edgehill and Cherry opened, with Cherry striking the early blows until Edgehill got going with a marvellous loft over mid off for 6. Edgehill was then bowled for 9 bringing White to the crease who played in his usual way for his 11 off * balls until he was caught at gully. Cherry had earlier fallen for 21. Beech then came and went for just 2 with Bournville placed on 52, but an unbeaten partnership of 34 between Stephens (8 off 18) and Perry (31 off 28) guided Bournville to victory to the wild celebrations of all players and spectators at the Bournville Olympic Bowl.
