SKIPPER Clive Chadhani is confident Eastnor can stay clear of danger in Birmingham Cricket League Division Two.

They lost by five wickets at home to leaders Leamington Spa and then saw their visit to relegation-threatened Halesowen rained off on Monday.

Eastnor, who are 20 points clear of the bottom two, have four games left.

Chadhani feels they can earn vital points at home to fourth-placed Stourbridge tomorrow (noon).

“Stourbridge are in the promotion race but we know their strengths,” said Chadhani. “We have home advantage and, with Atiq ur Rehman back, I’m looking forward to the game.”

Chadhani (31) and Andrew Fisher (29) started well against Leamington before Sunil Rahi (28) and Shameer Ahmed (15) helped the score to 200-8.

The visitors needed to chase a rain-reduced 197 from 47 overs, reaching their goal with nine balls left.

Meanwhile, Simon Davies blasted 137 and Ben Febery 106 as Bosbury hit 342-2 from 40 overs in a rain-hit Marches League Division Four winning draw at Herefordians.
