Wellesbourne Cricket Club CHL Saturday 2nd XI v Earlswood II on Sat 14 May 2011 at 13:30
Wellesbourne Cricket Club Won By 5 wickets

Match report Wellesbourne made it two wins from two against an experienced Earlswood team on Saturday. Winning the toss the visitors decided to have a bat with skipper McGovern looking in good nick until he was trapped lbw by Wheeler. Bournes bowlers kept it tight as Earlswood's innings ticked over though they were helped out by one or two lapses in the field. Jarrett and Wheeler in particular kept the run rate down with the former picking up 3 wickets for just 23 from his 10 overs. Khan held the innings together for 20 overs but never looked like scoring quickly as wickets continued to fall. Snipe and Smith came together in the latter part of Earlsood's innings which eventually gained some momentum. Young Sam Singleton took a couple of wickets in a tidy spell of bowling before Smith in particular let loose. Snipe went for 35 and Smith finished not out 47 to take the visitors to 177/8 from their 45 overs.

Wellesbourne were on the back foot when openers Wheeler and Spence were dismissed in the first 5 overs. Jarrett & Green consolidated the innings until just before the rain when Jarrett fell for 32. 8 overs were lost and the home side's target was reduced to 146 from 37 overs, 78 runs required from 13 overs when play restarted. Alford joined Green and these two ran well and picked off the bad ball to take Bourne to the brink of victory when Green was out for 43. Alford finished the job off, not out 47, with 3 overs to spare.
