Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI v Sheldon Marlborough on Sun 09 Sep 2012 at 2.00pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won by 7 wickets

Match report In Bournville Sunday XI's final game of a fantastic campaign, skipper DJ Budden once again lost the toss and much to the disdain of his comrades was asked to bowl by the Marlborough captain. Weakened, due to the loss of fast bowler Alex Bullivant due to a broken thumb, Bournville started cheaply but without reward for openers Khan and Dibble. Young, maverick speedster Jack White was introduced and quickly struck but was forced to withdraw from the attack with a sore back. This led to Cherry and the returning Ryan Curtis to form an economical partnership with only 1 wicket falling, a good catch by stand in part time airspinning cannon fodder merchant/keeper Milan Vashi giving Curtis a vital breakthrough. Porter then continued where Curtis left off, to pick up 2-19 thanks to two Vashi stumpings. With 12 overs remaining and 8 wickets in hand, Budden decided to bowl himself due to recent successes with the ball, and immediately it paid dividends, picking up a wicket in his first over, and then continuing to pick up career best figures of 6-22 off his 5.2 overs, with good flight, guile and a consistent ability to bowl straight. This left Marlborough 134 all out off their 39.2 overs.

Openers Chris Curtis and Mark Edgehill looked comfortable until Curtis called his partner for a run before sending him back and leaving him stranded and run out for 8. Curtis then continued to play some nice shots before chipping to long off for 25. Porter (6) was unfortunate to receive a ball that bounced and gloved to the keeper. This allowed Perry and Cherry to form a match winning partnership, with Cherry digging in for 19* allowing team mate/best friend Perry to be the dominant figure on his way to 57* and smashing the winning runs for six to complete the victory and a fine season for the Sunday XI
