T20 v Leicester at Barnt Green
#1
I'm at BG, looking forward to the 2 x T20 games v Leicester today.  Weather is looking OK. 12 man squad:-

Pollock (Captain)
Mousley
Mellor
Ethan Brookes
Panayi
Garrett
Burgess
Ben Griffin
Johnson
Jake Lintott - another 2nd XI run out for this left arm spinner from Gloucestershire.
Chapman-Lilley
Bailey Wightman - a promising fast bowler who plays for Cheshire, born in Warwick, but grew up in Australia.

I think there are 3 keepers in that squad (Mellor, Burgess & Griffin?), but AM is wearing the gloves in the warm up.

In the first match, we won the toss and put them in.

Garrett and Panayi opening the bowling; Ateeq Javid, 'back home', opening the batting.

Leicester made a big 196 for 5 in their 20 overs. Lilley, 74NO off 36 balls!

Panayi (44 knocked off him in 3 overs) and Ethan Brookes (50 off 4 overs) were really poor and were thumped to all sides.  Wightman (0 for 24 in his 4 overs) and Garrett (2 for 28 in his 4) did OK and the spinners did have an impact, particularly Lintott, who took 1 for 18 in his 3 overs. Mousley took 1 for 26 in his 3.

Pollock and Burgess opening for us.

Despite a valiant effort by Mellor and Johnson at the end, we fell 11 runs short, on 185 for 5:-

Pollock - 39 (off 17 balls)
Burgess - 33
Mousley - 9
Mellor - 50 NO
Brookes - 3
Johnson - 25
Griffin - 3 NO

As so often at BG, the wicket is taking spin.  Ateeq Javid took 1 for 22 in his 4 overs of off spin.

Ah well, onto the second match......!

We won the second game by 33 runs.

We made 186 for 4:-
Burgess - 11
Pollock - 71 (off 39 balls)
Mousley - 7
Mellor - 12
Brookes - 36 NO
Johnson - 44 NO (off 15 balls)
A wonderful display of attacking batting (with some quality this time) from EP and Brookes & Johnson kept that going to the end.

We kept Leicester to 153 for 9 off their 20 overs:-
Mousley: 4 - 0 - 37 - 1
Wightman: 4 - 0 - 19 - 1
Garrett: 3 - 0 - 34 - 0
Panayi: 2 - 0 - 21 - 0
Lintott: 4 - 0 - 20 - 2
Brookes: 3 - 0 - 19 - 3
Good seam bowling (in both matches) from Wightman (he looks to be a real prospect) and Brookes in this match (unlike the first).  Lintott looks a good spinner, I think he could be pushing for a squad place, with a few more Seconds games like this under his belt.
