Leamington Cricket Club 2nd XI v Barnt Green on Sat 11 May 2013 at 12.30pm
Leamington Cricket Club Won by 110 Runs

Match report Third time lucky for Leamington!

Leamington's second string gained their first victory of the season with a comfortable win over Barnt Green.

Asked to bat first on a true surface, Leamington made an excellent start agaisnt some indifferent bowling. Richard Swann maintained his good form making 48, whilst James Cowan justified his promotion with a belligerent 43. Unlike previous weeks, Leamington's middle order kicked on as Jack Hawkes and Simon Magill set about Green's attack. Aided by some arthritic fielding, their partnership ticked over at better than a run a ball, until Hawkes fell victim to a stunning catch for 65. Magill was unbeaten on a sublime 84* as Leamington took tea on 284 - 4 in their 50 overs.

A rain delay meant that Green's target was 261 in 41 overs, but they were never in the hunt as Spa openers Paul Lawrence and Dan McCarthy each took wickets in their testing spells. The wily Wayne Killian strangled Green's middle order taking 4 for 29 in 9 overs of left arm spin, aided by two stumpings from Will Dixon. Ady Butler was left to mop up the tail with three wickets, whilst debutant Bopanna cleaned up the last man as Barnt Green closed on 151 All Out, leaving Leamington victors by 110 runs.
