Warwickshire 2nd XI 187 all out (43.0 overs)
Nottinghamshire 2nd XI. 181 all out (49.0 overs)
Warwickshire (2 points) beat Nottinghamshire (0 points) by 6 runs
Warwickshire skipper Andrew Umeed won the toss and chose to bat first ahead of his side’s second match of the week at Moseley C.C. in the Second Eleven Trophy.
Pollock 40 and Umeed began well with an opening partnership of 61, until wickets with consecutive deliveries from Kitt removed both Pollock and new batsman Banks first ball.
When Umeed 28 was lbw to Patterson-White in the 21st over, Warwickshire were 96-3 which became 121-5 by the 29th over after Mellor 7 and Lamb 27, were dismissed by Carter and Patterson-White respectively.
Next to go was the experienced Barker 13, smartly stumped by Moores off Libby who then trapped Singh lbw for one, while Patterson-White quickly disposed of Poysden 1. This left Javid trying to lift the final total almost single-handed, as Kitt removed Brookes and Spencer to close the Warwickshire innings on 187 from 43 overs. Javid remained unbeaten on 29 and Kitt finishing with 4-37 and Patterson-White 3-44.
When Nottinghamshire began their reply Barker, who missed out on selection for the first team match at Northampton after being struck in the abdominal area whilst batting in the Championship match against Surrey, struck twice removing both openers, with Moores edging to wicket-keeper Mellor for 19 while Smith was lbw for nine.
Dal and Libby added 43 for the third wicket but Singh drew Dal 19 down the wicket and Mellor completed the stumping with Nottinghamshire 76-3, still needing 112 to win.
Javid bowled Hutton 6 and two quick lbw’s from Singh, taking the wickets of Keats four and Brown 0, left Nottinghamshire 90-6 after 26 overs.
Poysden bowled Patterson-White 7 after he and Libby had added 19 for the seventh wicket and an eighth wicket partnership of 40 with Carter 23 kept Nottinghamshire in the match, until Umeed had Carter caught by Brookes.
With Libby completing a half-century, Kitt nine, was stumped by Mellor off Poysden’s bowling with 20 still needed, before the last pair of Libby and Milnes took Nottinghamshire within seven runs of victory before Barker returned to the attack and bowled Milne to secure a six run win for Warwickshire.
Libby remained unbeaten on 57 while both Barker and Singh took three wickets each.
