Bournville Cricket Club


Aston v Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 08 Jun 2013 at 1.30pm
Bournville Cricket Club Lost by 4 wickets

Match report Having lost the toss again, Budden and an unchanged Bournville were asked to bat at a small Aston ground with a lightening outfield. With 250 likely to be par, Bournville were looking for a solid start. Unfortunately Thomas (4) fell first to a good catch at slip by Javid, playing a cut shot early on in his innings. Farrington and Llewellyn began to rebuild, with the latter in particular playing some lovely shots through the covers. Farrington then fell to an inswinging delivery for 4, and Amin breifly threatened with a 6 over long off but went cheaply for 14, followed immediately the following over by a loose shot by Llewellyn, caught by a deepish mid off for 8. Lynch and Budden then began rebuilding by adding 55 in 13 overs before Budden (8) was 'adjudged' LBW by the umpire, although he had managed to hit the ball for four with his bat. This led to another mini collapse with Beech and Busby both failing to trouble the scorers, and then Lynch was bowled shortly after reaching his 50 without adding to it. White then came to the fore and smashed two sixes in his 30, before he was caught at long off leaving last pair Bullivant (16*) and Ball (12) to put on 43 for the last wicket and drag Bournville to 201 all out.

Aston went after the chase early on, knowing it wasa relatively small total to chase on their home turf. Although they were 6 down when reaching their target, and with Bournville dropping a few chances to make the game even closer, the game was never in doubt as they reached their target with over 20 overs spare. Wickets for Ball (2-10), Amin (1-45), Bullivant (1-33) and Lynch (2-17).
