Ball ton lifts Dorridge

DORRIDGE dug deep to keep the pressure on at the top of the Birmingham Premier League First Division last Saturday.

DORRIDGE dug deep to keep the pressure on at the top of the Birmingham Premier League First Division last Saturday.

Hosts Coventry & NW chose to bat first and were very well placed at 160-1 with eighteen overs left.

However, the dismissals of Higgins (94) and Pickering (61) restricted them to 263-6 with Shane Getkate claiming three of the wickets to fall.

At 4-2 in reply, and then 49-3, Dorridge knew they were in for a battle, but a magnificent partnership of 196 between Dave Ball (130 not out) and Jonathan Webb (88) saw the visitors canter home with 10 overs spare, moving to third in the table.
