Worcestershire’s rookie professional contract duo of Rehaan Edavalath and Henry Cullen were amongst the runs while Taylor Cornall produced a fine all-round display in the latest round of Birmingham and District Premier League matches.

Edavalath opened for Barnards Green and top-scored with 95 in a total of 227 all out from 49.5 overs against Wolverhampton.

The opener faced 120 balls and hit one six and seven fours and put on 70 for the first wicket with Ryan Tongue (22) and 86 for the third with George Rhodes (36).

It was the decisive knock of the game as Wolverhampton, despite 60 from former Worcestershire player, Tom Fell, were dismissed for 209 to go down by 18 runs.

Keeper-batter Cullen also opened for Kenilworth Wardens and struck 85 off 105 balls with 11 fours against Moseley.

He put on 182 for the first wicket with Jamie Harrison (135) and then Reeve Evitts chipped in with 26 off 25 balls in a total of 304 all out.

Evitts picked up one wicket as Moseley were bowled out for 221.

Cornall’s 3-26 from 10 overs of spin helped dismiss Halesowen for 147 after former Worcestershire pace bowler Gareth Andrew’s initial three wicket burst.

The opener then hit an undefeated 89 from 119 deliveries with two sixes and nine fours to help Ombersley to a seven wicket win.
