KIDDERMINSTER couldn't capitalise on an impressive bowling display against Kenilworth Wardens  as the Chester Road side suffered another defeat to leave themselves rock bottom of Birmingham League Premier One.

Wardens were removed for a modest 146 all out as Kidderminster kept runs to a minimum.

Ali Zaryab struck 43 for Wardens in the face of some accurate bowling by Ben Gibbon who took two for 22 while Josh Tidmarsh claimed two for 31.

But it was Zeshan Bashir who mopped up Wardens batting by taking four for 36 to put Kidderminster in a commanding position at the break.

However Kidderminster's batting didn't match their earlier efforts as they were bowled out for 121, which was 25 runs short of their target.

Skipper Neil Pinner proved top scorer when opening the batting by scoring 28 but Kidderminster couldn't cope with Wardens' impressive bowling pair of Tommy Rex who took four for 51 while Reeve Evitt cleaned up with five for 13.

The result leaves Kidderminster in real danger of relegation as they are currently 54 points adrift of safety with 10 games remaining.

It wasn't enough as the Green responded in style by reaching 263 for three with 16 balls to spare.

Banton's innings included 17 fours and five sixes as he took Ombersley's bowling attack apart.

There was no shortage of support for Banton as Ollie Cox added a further 64 before skipper Dominic Harding helped ease his side home on 28 not out.
