Wellesbourne Cricket Club CHL Saturday 1st XI v Leek Wootton on Sat 14 Jul 2018 at 1.30pm
Wellesbourne Cricket Club Won

Match report Wellesbourne lead the Premier Division by a single point from Lapworth following a six-wicket win at home to Leek Wootton on yet another superb day. Leek Wootton won the toss and took first strike but found the going tough as opening bowlers Chris Evans and Jamie Maynard kept it tight and were soon rewarded in the fourth over when Maynard trapped Phil Robinson lbw. Evans then followed up with two wickets having Mike Allison caught behind by Dave Barnett and then Sandeep Murthy well caught by Tom Stephenson at mid off and after 20 overs Wootton were struggling on 39 for three. Stuart Budd and Dave Allison then dug in before Stephenson struck twice having Budd (21) caught and bowled and Graeme Couchman lbw (this wicket was the 400th victim for Stephenson in the Cotswold Hills league). Dave Allison (23) was then bowled by Tommy Wheeler and on 98 for six it looked like Bourne would soon wrap the innings up. However, at this point, Bourne took their foot off the pedal and Martin McKenna and Ian Cox staged a recovery putting on a stand of 64 before Stephenson returned to have Cox stumped by Barnett for 28 in the 44th over leaving McKenna on a fine 42 not out and the innings closed on 170 for seven. Evans had the superb figures of 2-8 off his ten overs, Stephenson 3-61, Maynard 1-31 and Wheeler 1-37. Chasing a target probably 30 runs more than they should have and with a weakened batting line-up Bourne openers Myles Isted and Ross Milton began steadily until in the ninth over on 29 Isted was lbw to Cox for 13. This brought Maynard in to join Milton and these two batted well in tandem and with both looking in good touch they looked in no trouble until on 103 Milton was caught in the deep by Robinson off Couchman for 39. Maynard continued to bat well and with Wheeler took the total to 136 before Wheeler was caught by Budd off Dave Allison for 11. With victory seemingly in sight on 154 Maynard was then well caught at deep long on by McKenna for a fine 63 leaving Barnett (14 not out) and Travis Butcher to see the hosts over the line to a welcome win. Cox 2-33, Couchman 1-31 and Allison 1-42.
