Tricky test for lowly Moseley

Birmingham League

Birmingham League

WINLESS Moseley take on mid-table Walmley tomorrow and will be hoping to erase the disappointment of last week's abandoned tie out of their memory.

A bottom-of-the-table clash at home to Leamington Spa had all the credentials of a mouth-watering tie, and one that the hosts would have certainly fancied their chances in.

A win at Scorers on Streetsbrook Road tomorrow though could move them above their Sutton Coldfield opponents and maximum points will surely move them out of the relegation zone as both Shifnal and Leamington face tricky tests.

Meanwhile, Knowle & Dorridge will be looking to get their title challenge back on track after slipping to defeat at Wolverhampton last week.

The new Birmingham & District Premier League leaders dismissed Spencer Platt's side for just 73 runs

from 22.4 overs in a game that was already reduced to 27 overs per side.

Nick Warren and Ben Coley were the only players to reach double figures as Imran Jamshed took 5-31 and India Test player Sairaj Bahatule claimed 3-7.

In response Wolverhampton were given something of a scare and only just reached their total with five balls remaining, Bahatule top scoring with 22.

K&D travel to third-placed Kenilworth Wardens knowing that a win will put them right back in contention for the top honours in the division.

In Division One, Dorridge travel to Halesowen after recording a winning draw at home to Coventry & WW.

Coventry made 166-9 with openers Thami Tsolekile and Zhoaib Akhlaque smashing an opening partnership of 67. David Bell was the pick of the bowlers for the hosts taking 4-46.

As a result of delays, Dorridge had 26 overs available and Stuart Eustace (37) and Elliott Seal (32) picked up vital runs for them as they earned 13 points from their 130-6.

In the Second Division, Evesham skittled Berkswell out for 117 as former Worcestershire star Neal Radford took 4-29 before hitting an unbeaten 46 to help secure a convincing nine-wicket victory.

Berkswell will be hoping re-capture their previous good form when they host relegation-threatened Newport tomorrow.

Olton and WW entertain mid-table Kington in the Third Division high on confidence after celebrating a five-wicket win at bitter rivals Studley last week.

Babar Khan was the hero last weekend when he took 7-44 as he helped to reduce Studley to 149-9.

A stand of 44 between Marc Webb and South African Roy Adams saw Olton home by five wickets. ..SUPL:
