One-Day Cup Report: Warwickshire v Lancashire

Lancashire missed out on a chance to secure qualification from the Royal London Cup group stage following a five-wicket (Duckworth/Lewis) defeat to Warwickshire.

The Red Rose, having finished their campaign, need other results to go their way on Monday after the home side chased down a D/L target of  255 in 45 overs with two balls to spare.

Lancashire amassed 277 for seven thanks to skipper Dane Vilas’s 83 (79 balls, six fours, two sixes) supported by a series of small contributions. Alex Thomson continued his fine tournament with List A-best figures of 10-1-27-3, including a burst of three wickets in 12 balls.

The home side then recovered from a superb opening spell of 8-2-15-3 from James Anderson to time their pursuit to perfection to the delight of a bumper Community Fun Day crowd at Edgbaston. Liam Banks struck 61(68 balls, three fours, one six) before Sam Hain saw the job through with consummate skill, his unbeaten 84 (100 balls, two fours and a six), raising further his remarkable List A career-average of 58.

Put in, Lancashire lost Haseeb Hameed to the eighth ball of the innings, lbw to an Olly Hannon-Dalby inswinger. But after a slow start, just six runs from the first five overs, they accelerated through a succession of solid partnerships.

Keaton Jennings (31, 40 balls) and Steven Croft added 56 in 12 overs and, after Jennings was bowled by Jeetan Patel, Croft (45, 48 balls) and Vilas added 40 in seven before Croft played on to George Panayi.

Vilas and Jake Lehmann kept the scoreboard ticking over with 80 in 15 overs but Thomson applied a brake with two wickets in three balls. Lehmann drove to mid-off and Rob Jones reverse-swept his second ball to gully.

When Vilas missed a cut at Thomson and was bowled, Lancashire were 192 for six and in danger of coming in short, but Josh Bohannon (37 not out, 45 balls) and Saqib Mahmood (a List A-best 45, 43 balls) added 83 in 12 overs to get the total up around par.

Warwickshire’s reply started briskly but was pegged back by a high-class spell from Anderson. He bowled Dominic Sibley off an inside edge then produced perfect off-cutters to force fatal edges to wicketkeeper Vilas from Ed Pollock (38, 34 balls) and Will Rhodes.

Hain and Banks retrenched with a stand, twice interrupted by rain, of 111 in 22 overs. They posted their half-centuries from successive deliveries, from 73 and 59 balls respectively, Hain achieving the unusual feat of reaching 50 without hitting a four.

After another rain break altered the target again, Warwickshire resumed needing 96 from 11 overs and soon lost Banks who lifted Graham Onions to deep extra cover. But Hain, now batting with a runner after hurting a knee scrambling for a single, added 40 in five overs with Woakes (20, 16 balls) and then Alex Mellor (30 not out, 13 balls) arrived to inject the required impetus with two sixes in a Matt Parkinson over.

One-Day Cup Preview: Warwickshire v Lancashire

A bumper crowd is expected for the Edgbaston Foundation’s Community Fun Day with admission just £2 for adults and free for under 16s for the Royal London One-Day Cup match against Lancashire.

Fun has been in short supply for the Bears so far during their Royal London Cup campaign. Just one win and a tie from six games has ended their qualification hopes with two games still to play.

Hopefully a lot of people will come down including some who have never watched cricket before, and we want to play our part in giving them a great day. I want the guys to play with plenty of energy and skill and put in a performance for Warwickshire.

Jim Troughton

There have been positive signs in the performances of emerging players Alex Thomson, Liam Banks and George Panayi, but first-team coach Troughton’s appraisal of his team’s performances is typically honest.

“For a few of the guys the competition has been a bit of a baptism into what first-team cricket is all about,” he said.

“It’s disappointing because they did so many good things over the winter and in pre-season, but as soon as we got into this competition it has felt like the pressure and expectation that these guys put on themselves has shown.

“There have been some positives and a lot of the guys will be better for this experience. Now we want to finish the group strongly and put in good performances for our loyal members and supporters, starting tomorrow.

“Community Day is always a great day. Hopefully a lot of people will come down including some who have never watched cricket before, and we want to play our part in giving them a great day. I want the guys to play with plenty of energy and skill and put in a performance for Warwickshire.”

It has been a disappointing 50-over campaign for the Bears, albeit with a squad deprived of numerous key players through injury. They have missed two potential linchpins in both batting (Ian Bell and Adam Hose) and bowling (Olly Stone and Liam Norwell) while all-rounders Aaron Thomason and Chris Woakes have been restricted to just one and two appearances respectively.

Troughton never cites injuries as an excuse and rarely even mentions them to the media but, when the subject was mentioned to him, said: “Take a senior batter and a senior bowler out of any team in the group and they are going to struggle. We have asked a lot of these young guys and they are having to learn very quickly about the demands of playing 50-over games then day off, train and play again. The more experienced players are used to that. It doesn’t take as much mental energy out of them because they are used to the rhythm of these tournaments.

“The challenge for the younger guys has been to back up performances in games that come thick and fast. Against the three stronger teams – Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire – we showed what we can do and got three points out of those three games. The problem is we haven’t backed that up against teams I think we should beat.

“The results have not been what we wanted but, within that, there are good stories of guys stepping up to this level. All I ask for from our fans is a little bit of patience and support for these guys who are working incredibly hard and sticking together and just want to please the supporters.”
