HARVINGTON hit top form and Bredon remained unbeaten in the Worcestershire Indoor League in Evesham.

In a 54-run victory, Harvington amassed 143-3 against Stanway Boxmen, who could only reply with 89-3.

Openers Si Rickett (31 not out) and Elliot Thompson (27no) pressed hard from the start, scoring at over 10-an-over until having to retire.

At the halfway mark, Harvington were on 74-0 with Pete Smith (20) continuing the good work.

The first wicket fell at 100 and a couple more followed as the race for runs progressed, leaving George Burford (18no) helping Harvington to post a substantial target.

The chasers needed a lively, wicket-free start to come even close and Pete Green (20) and Jason Haines (27no) put on 47 after six overs.

Harvington's bowlers were more accurate and gave less wides away, which added pressure to the batsmen.

After Green's run-out and the retirement of Haines, more run-outs came from desperation and the prospect of a win receded further.

Feckenham (96 all out) lost to Bredon (97-2) with 15 balls remaining despite getting off to a steady start.

Ben Adshead (23) and Andy Kings (25) produced what might have been a launchpad for a winning total.

But, at 57-0 from six overs, Kings was easily run-out and Adshead lost his off-stump to Martin Hill (3-21).

Feckenham slumped to 73-4 after eight overs and only 23 more runs were added as Luke Jackson (26) was left last man standing.

Bredon's reply was competent and decisive, even though Ryan Humphries' second over reduced them to 19-2.

Further mishaps were avoided as Hill (25no) and John Diamond (25no) moved on to 58 at halfway before Dom Fenney (21no) and Simon Richies (13no) completed the task.

On Tuesday, February 3, from 8pm, Feckenham play Stanway Boxmen and Bredon tackle Harvington.
