MCCA lose to Warwickshire 2nd XI by 6 wickets

Batting first against Warwickshire at the delightful Orleton Park ground, MCCA failed by some 30 odd runs to post a competitive total.

Howitt and Dobson looked comfortable, adding 64 for the second wicket in 18 overs, but after Howitt's unfortunate run out and Dobson's acrobatic caught and bowled dismissal, the innings went into decline in spite of an attacking innings of 32 from Nagra. Ian Westwood bowled his off-spinners accurately, taking 4-42 off his 10 overs

Warwickshire's cause was helped by two dropped catches just when some pressure was being applied. Thirty-nine extras conceded was evidence of some undisciplined bowling which assisted the visitors to a 6 wicket victory with 8 overs to spare. Cornwall's Justin Stephens was the pick of the bowlers with 2-22 off seven overs.
