Kineton v Wellesbourne Cricket Club CHL Saturday 1st XI on Sat 06 Jul 2019 at 1.30pm
Wellesbourne Cricket Club Lost by 63 runs

Match report Wellesbourne’s hopes of securing a fourth title in a row suffered a major jolt with a 63-run defeat at local neighbours Kineton who thoroughly deserved their win and, in turn, showed the vibrancy and desire to have boosted their chances of moving away from any relegation worries and their celebrations at the end showed how much they care. The hosts took first strike after losing the toss and soon lost a wicket as Oliver Taylor was caught by Sean Hopwood off Noah Rose. This brought Stephen Dawber in to partner Nick Briggs and these two batted solidly taking the score to 71 in the 17th over before a superb stumping from Dave Barnett off a wide ball from Reece Myatt resulted in Dawber’s dismissal for 26. Sam Cooper then joined Briggs taking the total to 97 for three before Briggs (32) followed to another fine wide ball stumping by Barnett off Jamie Maynard. Bourne were keeping the score under control at this point and when Sam Cooper was caught by Barnett off Maynard for 24 in the 34th over with the score only on 123 the visitors were feeling satisfied. However, Kineton began to up the tempo as Rory Geary-Heaton and James Cooper began to score freely until Geary-Heaton was caught by Barnett off Tom Stephenson for a top score of 35 and Stephenson (10-1-2-42) had Cooper (22) stumped by Barnett with the total on 174. Another quick 40-run stand then by George Hendy and Isaac Rowles saw Kineton claim maximum batting points before both fell to the last two balls of the 45th over from Maynard (8-1-4-36) as Rowles (22) was caught at deep long on by Stephenson and Hendy (21) became Barnett’s fourth stumping and sixth victim and the total finished on 214 for eight with Bourne again bowling a disappointing 26 wides. With the visitors again missing a couple of batsmen a good start was needed but James Cooper struck in the first over removing Isted to a catch by Harrison Costar in the slips. However, this brought Maynard and Barnett together and a lot was depending on their partnership and both looked confident putting on 51 runs before Maynard (20) was caught driving at slip by Sam Cooper off the impressive Tom Durnian and on 79 in the 14th over Durnian (7-0-2-31) struck another important blow as Barnett (30) was caught by Costar. Two batting debutants Jamie Vadasz and Suni Bahi then combined adding 18 runs before Costar’s third catch removed Bahi off the bowling of Sam Cooper. Vadasz though was beginning to play a good knock and with the help of Stephenson, who also batted well, they took the score to 123 before a needless run out cost Vadasz (20) his wicket. From this point Kineton could sense they were well on top and when the sixth wicket of Travis Butcher (10) fell to a catch by James Cooper off his brother Sam on 142 the visitors collapsed as Sam Cooper (10-0-4-46) took the wickets of Matt Woods (to another catch by his brother) and Hopwood to a caught and bowled and Rowles (9.1-0-2-26) had Stephenson (20) caught by James Cooper and trapped Rose lbw and Bourne were all out for 151 in the 34th over with 32 wides being the only blemish on Kineton’s performance.
