Cannock 1st XI vs Coseley 1st XI

Cannock opted to bowl first after winning the toss and toiled hard on a good batting wicket. The visitors batted well but a steady flow of wickets meant that they never got away from the home side, eventually being bowled out for 210. Matt Robinson was the pick of the bowlers with 3-53.

After being reduced to 42-2, Faizan Khan (61) and Daniel Wood (32) helped get Cannock back on track but the loss of quick wickets meant that they still needed 23 runs to win but only had three wickets remaining. The calmness of Will Fleet (47 not out) and a couple of big hits from Ed Martin (13 not out) saw the side to a thrilling victory with a little more than two overs to spare.
