CHADDESLEY Corbett remain the only side in the Worcestershire League Premier Division with a 100% winning record, after taking a third maximum-points of the season with a 93-run win against Bewdley.

Bilal Hassan (103) hit an unbeaten century, whilst Waqas Ahmed hit 34 en route to a 199-6 first innings total, which was followed by a stunning bowling display.

Waqas Ahmed took 5-31, whilst Junaid Iqbal took 2-20, as Bewdley were bowled all out for 106 in the 44th over.

Chaddesley Corbett’s second XI fell to their second defeat in as many games in a seven wicket defeat against West Malvern in Division Five.

The fifth string hit a respectable 193-5 from their 50 overs faced, but the visitors were a lot faster in accumulating runs, and surpassed the set target in the 43rd over.

Anoup Nandra top-scored for Chaddesley Corbett with 53, whilst Arslan Mehmood took 2-42 in the second innings.

Barnt Green’s fixture against Smethwick fell to an abandonment in Birmingham & District Premier Division One, just an over into the second innings.

Green elected to field having won the toss, but were subjected to a batting masterclass by the hosts during the 40 over-a-side match.

Opener Ali Ebad hit 51 from 70 balls faced, including six fours, but it was Gurinder Singh who stole the show, hitting 82 – including eight into the boundary and three sixes, leaving Smethwick on 214-6 by the time of his departure.

Zain Ul-Hassan took four wickets for 34 runs for Barnt Green, whilst Andrew Sutton took 2-48 from eight overs bowled.

The hosts eventually finished on 230-9 from their 50 overs, but with Tom Brown and Ul-Hassan taking nine from the sole over of the innings, the match was abandoned with conditions becoming unplayable.

Green will hope for better playing conditions on Saturday (12pm), when hosting West Bromwich Dartmouth at Cherry Hill Road.

In Worcestershire League Division Two, Barnt Green’s second XI lost by 43 runs to Ombersley seconds, after being bowled all out for 223.

James Rudge top-scored for Green with 68 (not out), whilst Peter Scott collected two wickets for 31 runs.
