Played Saturday, May 12th 2007.
In a rain affected encounter the toss proved to be if not crucial then at least had a bearing on the result.
Kineton won it and asked Itchington to bat first on a damp track. Openers Dave Buchholz and Tom Perks made steady progress to reach 34 off 11 overs when Buchholz was dismissed trying to up the rate. The innings then fell apart with only Nigel Smith (29) and Steve Franks (13) getting into double figures as Adams (8-4-12-3), Clarke (5-1-18-3) and Hill (4.1-0-10-2) turned the screw with some tight bowling as Itchington’s uncertainty over what would be a defendable total paralysed their innings.
R’Wala 49 not out and Maynard 38 put on 86 for the first wicket and Itchington used six bowlers in search of a breakthrough, but Kineton romped home with 12 overs to spare for the loss of 2 wickets.
