Norton Lindsey v Wellesbourne Cricket Club CHL Saturday 1st XI on Sat 07 Jul 2018 at 1.30pm
Wellesbourne Cricket Club Won

Match report Wellesbourne bounced back from two successive defeats to gain an excellent three-wicket win at Norton Lindsey due to a good all-round display with Ross Milton and Travis Butcher taking the starring roles and have now moved back to the top of the table. With results fluctuating week by week only 10 points separate the top three sides. On another superb day for cricket Norton took first strike and openers Gavin Shepherd and Steve Rushton were soon peppering the boundary as they raced to 45 after seven overs. Shepherd then fell caught and bowled for 24 to first change bowler Jamie Maynard and Bourne began to slow the run rate with only 18 runs coming from the next nine overs. With the pressure now building on the batsmen the score had reached 95 in the 22nd over when Maynard removed Rushton for 51 to a catch by Dave Barnett. Stuart Shepherd and James Pyatt moved the score along to 121 before Shepherd was caught by Myles Isted off Barnett for 27 and then Bourne grabbed three quick wickets as Conor Green was run out, Barnett trapped Pyatt lbw for 15 and Milton bowled Richard Pozzi and the hosts were tottering on 134 for six. As the score moved on to 155 Milton then produced a superb three-wicket maiden. First he bowled Richard Blythe for 12, next ball he had J Robbins caught by keeper John Edden and two balls later he caught and bowled Dave McInnes. Sonny Nijar, who had watched from the non-striking end, then took the score to 172 before he became Milton’s fifth wicket falling lbw for 24. Milton finished with 5-14, Maynard 2-27 and Barnett 2–46. With a delay at tea time for the viewing of the second half of England’s brilliant 2-0 win over Sweden, Bourne were soon in trouble in the second over when Isted fell to a catch by Stuart Shepherd off Blythe and then on 32 Maynard (12) went lbw to Pozzi. Craig Cook, stepping up from the 2nds, then joined Milton at the crease and these two steadily took the visitors to 68 in the 21st over when Milton went for 25 to a catch by Pyatt off Nijar. Bourne then lost three wickets as Cook went for 32 as Nijar caught him off Blythe, Edden was bowled by Nijar and Barnett was caught by Green off Blythe and the visitors found themselves 103 for six. Darren Mole and Butcher set about steadily reviving the innings until on 134 Mole was bowled by Pozzi for 17. With 39 still needed though the game was in the balance but Butcher, with the able assistance of Matthew Woods, remain calm and these two took their side to victory. Butcher closing on 40 not out and Woods 14 not out. Blythe with 3-49, Pozzi 2-25 and Nijar 2-31.
