Twohig In Good Form With Bat In Bham League But Ends On Losing Side

ben twohig produced another fine knock for kidderminster but was on the losing side in a birmingham premier league division one fixture with shifnal.

the worcestershire all-rounder followed up his 68 against wellington by making 67 off 87 balls with nine fours batting at number three out of 221-8 from 49 overs.

twohig, who made his senior breakthrough at New Road recently in the county championship games with surrey and essex, then bowled 12 tidy overs for 46 runs.

but kidderminster’s total was comfortably overhauled by shifnal who reached 223-4 from 46.1 overs.

joe clarke was dismissed for a duck but his side oswestry – captained by his elder brother rob – obtained a winning draw against barnards green in another division one game.

oswestry made 242 all out with ryan tongue (3-42) and george rhodes (1-53) amongst the wicket-takers.

barnard green then reached 154-8 from 38 overs with tongue making 25 and rhodes three.

ombersley called upon worcestershire under-15 keeper tom cosh – a bromsgrove school pupil – and he impressed behind the stumps on his debut in the losing division one draw with berkswell.

county paceman matt davis was only able to bowl 2.4 overs because of a side strain as berkswell totalled 198-7.

ombersley settled for a draw after losing early wickets, including josh dell for nought, and ended on 76-8.

county seconds captain ollie westbury (1) and fellow england under-19 player adam finch (2) were part of the himley side which totalled 146-9.

they secured a winning draw against bridgnorth who closed on 117-9 with finch bowling eight overs for just 19 runs.

in the premier division, tom fell appeared for wolverhampton and made 14 off 22 balls as his side were dismissed for 70 of 21.3 overs in pursuit of shrewsbury’s 144.

dillon pennington, who has been recovering from an ankle problem, made 16 not out for the shrews.

zain ul-hassan (3-22) and county coach and barnt green captain andy sutton (4-41) were largely responsible for dismissing moseley for 123 in the top division.

but then barnt green also struggled for runs and were bowled out for 103 with ul-hassan and sutton making 15 apiece.
