Match Report

The Club Cricket Conference from London were invited to bat on a pitch which offered some help to the bowlers early on. Aggressive batting put the MCCC bowlers under pressure but at 109 for 3 the home side could be reasonably satisfied. However this all changed when first Burge with 62 at almost a run a ball and then an unbroken partnership of 145 by Khan with 115 in just 86 balls and Yarnley (50 not out in 51 balls), put the MCCC bowlers to the sword to reach 313 for 4 in their 50 overs. The ground fielding by the MCCC was very good but the bowlers’  accuracy left a lot to be desired.

Chasing a target of six an over, on a very good track, meant  that a good start was essential . An early wicket fell but Ollie Thomas ( 41) and John Williams (56) kept up the required scoring rate but  thereafter wickets fell at regular intervals in an attempt to maintain the momentum needed .  Only Khalid with 33 and skipper Laeq Chishti with 55 in fifty balls really got to grips with the situation and the Club Cricket Conference ran out worthy winners by 66 runs in the penultimate over.

Our thanks to Kidderminster Cricket Club for the splendid arrangements.
