KENILWORTH moved up to seventh in the Warwickshire League Division One table after getting the better of a drawn match at home to Bronze on Bank Holiday Monday.

Heavy downpours has forced the abandonment Kenilworth’s match at Pak Shaheen after 40 overs play on Saturday.

By then Kenilworth had fallen to 152 for 8 despite a solid 81 from in form Dave Edmunds who hit nine boundaries and four sixes while youngster Henry Curran posted a score of 41 not out before the rain came forcing an early completion of the match.

Edmunds continued his impressive form again on Monday by hitting 84, which included ten sixes, and Mark Stranks struck 52 as Kenilworth looked to set a big total.

Matt Dargan also chipped in as he found form to make 39 as Kenilworth were bowled all out for 237 for ten.

Bronze managed to save the match as they ended the day on 184 for 8 after fending off the last three overs after Mandymyan had earlier retired injured on 49.

Ed Ruswa’s fine spell of spin bowling was rewarded with 4 for 27 whilst Ian Baker took 2 for 61 and Steve Rhodes 1 for 33 for Kenilworth.
