Himley v Leamington Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 28 Apr 2012 at 12.00 pm
Match was Drawn Losing draw - 5 points

Match report Leamington 1st XI traveled to Himley for their opening match in the new Premier Division season. With only two matches in the league being completed, Himley will be delighted to have stolen an early march on their rivals by securing a winning draw especially having lost the toss. Despite early pressure from Young and Jabarkheil, Leamington were unable to capitalise on winning a vital toss and let the initiative slip through some poor fielding and bowling. The Himley pair of Tranter (69) and Wright (64) took full advantage and put on an excellent 151 for the first wicket before Wright was stumped by Balac off the bowling of Williams. Tranter soon followed off the bowling of James Uddin but Round (38*) and skipper Wedge (44*) continued on from the excellent start of the openers to allow Wedge to declare after 46 overs on 243-2.

In reply, despite losing Michael Balac early, David Bailey (41) and debutant Sam Cheshire (41) put on 74 for the second wicket to keep Leamington in the game. However, despite losing both in quick succession the returning Luke Radford (65) and James Uddin (33) maintained a steady run rate despite the fading light. In the end, the total was just out of Leamington's reach and combined with the excellent bowling of Smith (14-1-65-6), Leamington settled for a losing draw finishing on 215-8.
