Wicket-keeper batter, Henry Cullen, scored his second century of the summer for Kenilworth Wardens in their seven-run triumph over Shifnal in the Birmingham and District Premier League.

Cullen, who has played in the last three Royal London Cup matches, opened the innings and hit 109 off 111 balls with three sixes and 12 fours.

He has now totalled 928 runs in Birminghan League competitions this summer, with two centuries and six half centuries.

Cullen also struck 147 not out for Worcestershire Academy earlier this month against Cricket Wales in the ECB Under-18 County Championship.

He helped Kenilworth Wardens total 257-9 in their 50 overs, and his side then dismissed Shifnal for 250 in 49.3 overs.

Taylor Cornall followed up his 97 in the Royal London Cup win over Essex at New Road with a fine all-round performance for Ombersley.

He returned 2-37 in 10 overs and struck 69 off 83 balls with eight fours for
Ombersley (205-4) as they chased down Leamington’s 204-6 with nine overs to spare.

Cornall put on 100 for the second wicket with former Academy player Nick Hammond who ended unbeaten on 77.

There were more runs for Rehaan Edavalath after his century and fifty for Worcestershire Academy against Gloucestershire in the ECB Under-18 County Championship earlier in the week.

He made 76 off 99 balls with ten fours for Barnards Green and put on 143 for the second wicket with ex-Worcestershire all-rounder George Rhodes (72) against Dorridge.

Despite the loss of five wickets for 13 runs in mid-innings, Barnards Green (192-6) triumphed by four wickets.

Worcestershire Pathway Coach Andrew Sutton returned 6-23 as Barnt Green (286-6), for whom Jacques Banton hit 81, bowled out Kidderminster for 46.

Tom Fell made 45 as Wolverhampton (258-7) defeated Wem (152) by 106 runs.
