Wellesbourne Cricket Club Lost

Match report A brilliant century from Shipston’s Jack Murphy proved the match-winning innings as top-of-the-table Bourne’s good recent run came to an end at London Road with Shipston gaining a deserved five-wicket success to complete the double over the league leaders. With Exhall & Wixford also surprisingly losing, Bourne still lead by three points but Norton Lindsey are only 12 points behind and Shipston 19 and has made for an interesting final five weeks of the season. Having been put into bat, Bourne made a steady start as openers Gary Maynard and Darren Mole batted very carefully against some good tight bowling from Matt Corby and John Paton. The stand had reached 52 before Paton made the breakthrough grabbing two wickets in successive overs. First, Maynard was caught by Corby for 31 and one run later he removed Myles Isted leg before. Mole then found an ally in Jamie Maynard and these two continued batting watchfully adding 39 runs before Mole was bowled by Marcus Ireland for 33. Ireland then struck again having John Edden caught and bowled as the total reached 109. Skipper Dave Barnett then joined Jamie Maynard at the crease and these two began to up the tempo with some good shots until on 147 Nick Hibberd bowled Barnett for 19. Maynard continued to bat well and with Jonny Spence as his partner the score began to move along well when Hibberd struck again bowling Spence for 16 with the score on 180 and in the next over with no addition to the total, Maynard’s fine innings of 54 ended when he was caught at deep long off by Matt Corby off Dave Pyne. Corby then returned to bowl Arron Snipe before Travis Butcher and Tommy Wheeler saw Bourne passed the 200 to obtain maximum batting points. Corby then bowled Butcher for 12 and with Tom Stephenson being run out in the final over and Wheeler finishing on 17 not out, Bourne were all out for 215. Corby 2-32, Hibberd 2-35, Paton 2-45, Ireland 2-53 and Pyne 1-45 sharing the wickets. In reply, Bourne made a quick breakthrough when, with only two runs on the board, Gary Maynard had Harry Dube caught at mid-off by Stephenson. This brought together Corby and Murphy and in a similar start to the Bourne innings both players were watchful against good bowling before Mole had Corby playing on for 10 with the score on 42. Murphy continued to look in good form and with the assistance of Ireland they took the score to 99 before Stephenson had Ireland caught for 28 by Spence. Once more, Murphy continued his innings, this time with Hibberd as his partner, and another partnership of 42 ensued before Hibberd was well run out by Snipe for 23. Gary Betteridge then added 44 with Murphy before Snipe had him caught behind by Barnett and Bourne were back in the game but the redoubtable Murphy had other ideas and he continued to dominate the bowling taking him past a deserved century, and with Andy Corby, he saw his side home in the 40th over finishing on a superb 123 not out and a welcome win for the home side putting them back in the mix at the top.
