Hampton & Solihull collapse to 46 all out as Studley run riot in Premier Division clash

Solihull Editorial 15th Jun, 2017   0

CRICKET: HAMPTON and Solihull collapse to a miserable 46 all out against Studley at home on Saturday afternoon in the club’s latest Warwickshire Cricket League Premier Division match.

The game started well for Hampton and Solihull who won the toss and elected to bat.

Opening pair Daniel Christopher and Giles Clements started the innings in steady fashion but Clements fell while on nine and Christopher when on 14 as Chris Perrins took two catches from the bowling of Andrew Rhodes and Luke Deeprose respectively.

Three ducks followed as Studley’s bowling power ripped through H&S’s middle order with Johangir Khan, Mark James and Matthew James all falling for 0.

With Hampton & Solihull’s innings in pieces, they had to rely on the tailenders to salvage something from what was a poor performance.

Chris Hughes added 11 to the cause, but that wasn’t enough as Zain Siddiqui and Tim Keyte also fell for ducks as the H&S innings collapsed further.

Gavin Heath made five runs before he was caught while Mike Palmer was trapped lbw off the bowling of Deeprose.

H&S’s innings ended on 46 with Andrew Rhodes returning to the pavilion with remarkable figures of six wickets for just 16 runs.

Luke Deeprose took four wickets for 26 runs.

In reply, Studley had little to worry about.

Even when Scott Shepard fell for a duck and his opening partner Stephen Rose made just five Hampton and Solihull knew the game was beyond them.

Batsmen three and four – Chris Perrins and Jack Williams – saw out the rest of the innings as Studley earned a crushing eight wicket win in dominant style.

Mike Palmer took both of Hampton & Solihull’s wickets, returning with figures of two wickets for 21 runs from four overs.
