Mixed fortunes for Kenilworth Wardens

Leamington Editorial 31st Aug, 2018   0

THERE was mixed fortunes for Kenilworth Wardens over the weekend as they remain in the midst of a Birmingham League Premier Division relegation fight.

The Bank Holiday weekend had started positively for Wardens who enjoyed a two-wicket success over Dorridge on Saturday.

Dorridge amassed 222-7 from 49 overs, thanks to an unbeaten century from Chris Wight who crashed 101 runs off 138 balls.

In reply Wardens’ Prerak Mankad also notched up a century, ending on 121 not out to guide his side to 225-8.

Two days later Wardens then slumped to a crushing 104-run defeat to fellow relegation battlers Barnt Green.

Green set a daunting total of 305-7 after being put into bat, with William Baker (80), Matt Lamb (59) and Ed Pollock (58) hitting some big scores.

In reply Nick Seager hit 104 but it wasn’t enough as Wardens were all out for 201 in the 39th over.

Wardens sit just 16 points above second-from-bottom Ombersley with three games remaining.

Wardens entertain title-chasing Berkswell tomorrow (Saturday).
