Match Report

Conference batted first and in helpful bowling conditions very quickly found themselves two wickets down after just six overs. Excellent bowling from P.Brown and A.Wilkinson reduced the batsman to playing very cautiously. H.Quami and A.Roslyn then started to play shots that accelerated the scoring rate. After a few overs of excellent hitting, Quami was bowled which then left Conference batsmen to rebuild the innings. This was achieved by an outstanding partnership between Roslyn and the Conference captain, L.Chisti. They rapidly put on a century partnership, which was only curtailed when Chisti was caught. K.Diwar came in and also plundered quick runs to the back end of the innings. Unfortunately Roslyn fell short of a much-deserved century when he was bowled. The Worcestershire bowlers generally bowled good lengths and all of them finished with reasonable figures.

A similar pattern of early wickets falling ensured that the second innings was going to have to be a ‘backs to the wall’ approach if the Worcester boys were going to get anything out of the game. Quick and accurate bowling spells by G.Thornton and A.Manzoor were the principal architects of this early collapse. O.Westbury and R.Jaswal did put up some resistance but the outstanding batting performance was by D. Williams, who hit an excellent half -century. The lower order batsmen were quickly dismissed with A.Roslyn fetching a couple of cheap wickets at the end to finish off an excellent day for him. Conference fielding and catching was very good and helped to peg back the scoring rate leading to batsman taking chances and getting out.

Stourbridge CC is to be congratulated on the pitch standard and hospitality that was received by players and officials.
