Disappointment for Bredon as Dumbleton go top

There was disappointment for Bredon as Dumbleton went top of the Evesham Indoor League on runs per wicket.

The result means the title is now wide open.

A commanding defeat of Bredon (104-5), previously unbeaten, by Pershore (105-1) was underpinned by an opening partnership of 57 in 4 overs between Chris Ridings and Adam Wiffen, with excellent shot making and selection combined with precision calling.

After retirement, some momentum was inevitably lost. Sam Cross (21 no) and Geo Capaldi (13 no) nevertheless cruised to victory.

Bredon’s first loss of the season was caused by not posting enough runs.

Although Dominic Fenney (25) and Jamie Diamond (38 no) started well enough with 56 without loss at the halfway, this was not the launch pad for a necessary acceleration.

Towards the end of Bredon’s innings the lower order was trying desperately to make way for the return of the retired batsmen. They failed to achieve this until the last over which yielded 12 runs, 4 leg-byes and 3 run-outs.

We’re unbeaten so far in Evesham Indoor League

Come on, Bredon!

We remain the only unbeaten side in the Evesham Indoor League.

In our latest match Harvington (65 all out) lost to Bredon (67-0) with 4.4 overs remaining.

The left-arm bowling in-swinging to the right-hander of Steve Bridges was decisive, reducing Harvington to 37-3 after six overs.

His return of 3-16 is the best in any Worcester League this season so far.

Although Simon Ricketts (14) and George Burford (13) stuck around to add some respectability to the total, all was lost in the final over with two wickets in two balls.

Dominic Fenney ended with 2 for 8 and Jamie Munro enjoyed a couple of stumpings.

Next match: Bredon v Pershore, February 16, 8pm.
