Knwole & Dorridge keep up title pursuit

KNOWLE & Dorridge continued their charge to retain the Birmingham League Premier Division title with an emphatic ten-wicket victory over Kenilworth Wardens.

Visitors Wardens were put into bat after losing the toss where they were hustled out for just 120, with George Worker (3-12), Chris Cheslin (2-32), Jack Grundy (2-48) and Will Mottram (2-25) sharing the wickets.

In reply, K&D openers Worker (47 not out) and Alex Phillips (62no) were unmoved as they raced the reigning champions to 123 without loss in the 21st over.

Second-placed K&D, who sit six points behind league leaders Berkswell, head to second-from-bottom Walsall on Saturday in the first of the remaining win/lose games of the season.

K&D won the previous meeting back in May by three wickets.

Grundy had taken five wickets that day as Walsall were bowled out for 143 before K&D made hard work of posting 144-7 in reply.
