Bournville Cricket Club


Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI v Offchurch on Sat 18 May 2013 at 1.30pm
Match was Drawn Losing Draw

Match report After claiming the toss Bournville inserted Offchurch into bat, and some tight swing bowling from Beech and Dibble restricted Offchurch's start to the innings, with both taking a wicket in their new ball spell. Spinners, or slow bowlers, Ball and the returning de Polo then took voer the attack, again bowling very tightly and picking up regular wickets until a 7th wicket partnership materialised and with some late hitting allowed the visitors to get towards 150. Vashi and Beech then returned to clean up the tail leaving Offchurch all out for 164 off their 50 overs.

Bournville then started the innings well, before Thomas received a good ball the swung back to bowl him, and after Spragg got a poor LBW, Farrington was bowled and Llewellyn played a loose shot, things started to look slightly worse for Bournville. Beech and Budden scored 18 and 17 respectively, but once they departed it started to look a tall order after Perry was plumb LBW to Qasim. Vashi and de Polo started to rebuild before the latter smashed a short ball straight down mid on's throat to leave Ball and Vashi batting. Vashi was then adjudged LBW to opening bowler Khan and Bournville needing 15 with the last pair in were left with a stick or twist scenario. In the end with help from wides and last pair Dibble and Ball Bournville fell agonisingly short on 160-9 off their 50 overs to pick up 10 points from the losing draw
