Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI v RMCC on Sat 01 Jun 2013 at 1.30pm
Match was Drawn Winning Draw

Match report Bournville lost the toss and were asked to bat on a good pitch, and started well until Llewellyn punched the ball tamely back to the bowler to depart for 4. Thomas and Farrington then started to rebuild the innings and contributed a wonderful partnership of 104 from 27 overs to set the platform the guns down the order (apart from captain Budden) to come in a build a big score. Farrington was first to depart for 36, bowled trying to up the pace of the innings. Amin then departed for quick 9 before mainstay Thomas fell for a fine 87 having batted for 46 overs. Busby quickly came and went, as did Beech after a frightening blow for 6 down the ground providing support for Lynch who finished 33 not out helping Bournville post 215-7 from their 50 overs.

In reply RMCC started slowly with Bullivant providing the initial breakthrough, bowling Tehseen early on. A partnership between a clearly talented captain Nissar and Mumtaz started to worry Bournville before 2 exceptional pieces of fielding removed both. First Amin from deep square leg rocketed a throw to stumper Budden whilst the RMCC pair attempted a second run, and then White removed captain Nissar when he looked to steal a quick single, but Bournville's young, maverick speedster dived to stop the ball and threw to Bullivant at the bowlers end, who then proceeded to lob the ball to keeper Budden to smash the bails off with both batsmen stranded at the non strikers end. RMCC continued to up the rate with lusty blows but Amin with the first ball of his spell bowled Atif and Beech was introduced to break the vital partnership with White taking a good catch at moo moo to remove the big hitting Ishant for 36. Lynch then took Arun lbw, but it looked to be in vain as RMCC moved closer to the target. After Bullivant returned to be put air miles, Amin returned to the attack to take a wicket again with his first ball and another in the over to all of a sudden give Bournville hope. In the 50th over with 11 required, Amin again struck to leave RMCC with a nervy 5 balls but they held out for the draw.
