Wellesbourne Cricket Club CHL Saturday 2nd XI v Exhall & Wixford 2s on Sat 07 Jun 2014 at 1.30pm
Wellesbourne Cricket Club Won By 16 Runs D/L

Match report Wellesbourne Seconds turned around a disappointing batting display to win a rain affected match against Exhall and Wixford Seconds on Saturday. With the match reduced to 30 overs per side Wellesbourne lost the toss and were inserted by Exhall Captain Martin Park. In bowler friendly conditions a solid platform was laid by Hodge (22), Dutton (21) and Green (46) but excellent bowling by Brereton (4-31) and Huckerby (2-7) restricted the home side to a disappointing 132 for 9.
In reply Exhall raced to 48 before a truly exceptional spell of pace bowling by John Smith (5 -17) and outstanding catching by Hodge and Edden swung the match in Wellesbourne’ s favour. With the storm clouds gathering Wheeler (1-21) and Jarrett (2-8) ensured Exhall remained below the required run rate with tight lines and quick turnarounds before the match was eventually called off with Exhall still requiring 41 off 4 overs
Although the contest ultimately succumbed to the weather credit must go to Wellesbourne groundsmen John Barnet and John Turner who worked tirelessly to produce an excellent wicket in testing conditions and to the Exhall team who played the match in magnificent spirit.
Wellesbourne move to 3rd in the table as the travel to league leaders The Lenches on Saturday hoping to claim a spot in the automatic promotion places.
