Pollock hits lightning fast hundred with Edavalath also amongst runs in BDPCL

Ed Pollock smashed 126 off 51 balls for Barnt Green in their Birmingham and District Premier League Division One victory over Kenilworth Wardens.

The Worcestershire opener struck thirteen sixes as Barnt Green chased down a 257 target with 9.4 overs to spare.

Pollock hit nine fours meaning 114 of his runs came in boundaries.

He dominated an opening stand of 164 with Ben Chapman-Lilley to laid the foundations for his side’s victory.

Another Worcestershire opener in Rehaan Edavalath was also amongst the runs for Wolverhampton but ended on the losing side against Halesowen.

He made 98 off 128 balls with one six and eight fours as Wolverhampton totalled 249-8 in their 50 overs.

Edavalath, who is studying chemical engineering at Loughborough University, put on 80 for the first wicket with Ramanjot Jaswal and 51 for the fifth with Will Nield.

But an unbeaten 85 off 75 balls from former Worcestershire player, Alexei Kervezee, enabled Halesowen to recover from 139-6 and win by four wickets.
