BARNARDS Green A remain the only unbeaten Worcestershire Cricket Board Indoor League Worcester Division One side.

They dismissed Avoncroft for 54 before scoring 55-1 to win with six overs left.

Fine fielding and direct throws led to three run-outs while poor batting, apart from Dan Elliott’s 21, contributed to two catches and a batsman bowled.

Andy Ford took 2-13 before Green eased to the low target through Ryan Tongue (26 not out) and Oli Swift (25no).

Cutnall Green (151-5) lost to Droitwich (152-3) with two balls left in a game of quick running between the wickets.

After Matt Harris ended last man on 80no with support from Paul Hutchins (36), Green were overtaken.

Droitwich batted with determination as Martin Davies (35no), Max Young (22), David Huntbatch (27no), Jack Eaton (22) and Matt Durr (18no) contributed to the win.

The previous week, Cutnall Green (141-4) beat Worcester Nomads A (91-5) by 50 runs with a strong display.

Harris and Hutchins failed with the bat but the returns of Scott Shuck (39no) and Ted Baylis (57no) brought strength in depth.

Nick Husbands took two wickets in three overs but Nomads were still on 44-2 after five overs.

But the run-rate then failed to reach 10 an over and despite Josh Hawes’ 34 they were well beaten.

Nomads B (145-4) beat newcomers Barnards Green B (129-5) by 16 runs.

Derek Austin (43) and Darren Lakin (26no) led the way for the experienced Bransford side.

Two quick wickets dampened the tempo but Andy Leach (25no) and Tim Dobinson-Law (23) added runs with Austin.

Dannie Rees (58no) and Ryan Tandy-Smith (30) helped Green to a bright start on 72-0 at halfway but the remaining order only contributed 12.

In Division Two, Rushwick (96-5) lost to West Malvern (98-3) with five balls left.

Despite the efforts of Richard Bull (38no) and Indna Niavana (29), nearly nine overs to score 25 was too slow.

Rushwick smashed 27 in the last two overs before West produced a lacklustre batting display.

But Glen Collins (33), Ben Tanner (25no) and Pete O’Connell (17no) got them home in the final over.

Martley (141-5) beat Old Vigornians (131-5) by 10 runs.

Ian Flower and James Ganderton both retired before halfway with the score on 83-0.

Simon van Tongeren and Martin Sweet kept up the rhythm to take Martley to 117-0.

Run-outs led to five wickets before OVs’ reply began with belligerence from Chris Drew (30), who retired in the fourth over on 51-0, and Steve Camber-Ferguson (30no).

Ahsan Fiaz departed without scoring but Phil Mackie (24) and James Underwood (13) intervened before the Worcester side fell just short.

The previous week, Malvern A (90-5) lost to WCB Seniors (91-1) with seven balls left.

Malvern openers Ollie Halion (33) and Lewis Hill (37no) posted 50-0 after six overs.

But the town failed to add double figures in any over, losing five wickets for only 40.

Seniors put 58-0 on the board by the sixth over.

Robin Lloyd (19) was run out and after taking 12 from one over thanks to Martin Johnson the seniors slowed down.

Peter Gurr crawled over five overs for six runs until Malvern conceded four extras in the 11th over with 25 wides in total.

Nomads C (128-4) beat Malvern B (97-5) by 31 runs.

Malvern conceded 30 in wides compared to Nomads’ 14.

Roger Dixon (28), Jack Elston (20), Malcolm Jones (25no) and Charles Kerr (17no) all contributed to a better-than-par total.

Dave Sharpe replied with a cultured 55no and was supported by last man Andy Holmes (20).

Elston claimed 3-21 including two caught and bowled.
