KIDDERMINSTER crashed to a crushing 167 run defeat after collapsing to just 34 runs all out against Birmingham League Premier One rivals Moseley.

The Kidderminster batsmen simply couldn't cope with a remarkably green Chester Road wicket combined with the bowling prowess of Hampshire's Keith Barker and young Aussie seamer George Furror, who between them polished off the innings inside 16 overs.

In contrast, Moseley's highly rated batsman Andrew Umeed made light of the batting conditions by smashing a superb 99 in a boundary laden knock that contained six sixes, five of which were hit with such ferocity that the ball disappeared into the neighbouring allotments.

Abdullah Awan managed to hang around for 22, despite playing and missing many shots, while Ali Awan with 27 and Yadvinder Singh on 25 helped to keep the scoreboard ticking over as Moseley mustered a target of 201 all out in the 51st over.

Josh Tidmarsh proved pick of Kidderminster's bowling attack by taking three for 29 while Alex Rennie with two for 24 and Chris Steele, who claimed two for 47 off 14 overs, also got among the wickets.

But that was nothing to what followed as Kidderminster promptly lost three wickets without a run on the board and never recovered.

Former Warwickshire favourite Barker bagged six for 21 off eight overs while Furror backed him up with four for 11 from 7.1 overs.

Only tail-ender Chris Steele managed to make double figures with 12 not out as Kidderminster were quickly dismissed.

Barnt Green breezed to an easy seven wicket win over Knowle and Dorridge to cement second spot in Premier One.

Shorn of their Warwickshire stars, Carlos Brathwaite, Ethan Brookes and Jacob Lintott, Knowle and Dorridge offered little with the bat as they bowled out for a well below par total of 117 in the 44th over, wicketkeeper George Maddy made top score of 42.

The Green's accurate bowling attack saw Andy Sutton, Cameron Jones, Adam Hines and Jacques Banton all bag a couple of wickets.

Then following the loss of a couple of early wickets to the bowling of Jack Grundy, the Green soon made light of their target, reaching 120 for three in the 23rd over, Banton supplying top score of 46 while Warwickshire's Matt Lamb made 36 not out.

Bromsgrove moved to within six points of top spot in Premier Two after overwhelming Wem by 80 runs.

Lucas Ingram struck top score of 39 as Bromsgrove posted a total of 164 all out in the face of some accurate bowling by -Graham Wagg who took four for 49 from 15.3 overs.

Wagg was backed up by Andrew Harrison who claimed three for 37 while Alex Ollerenshaw took three for 55 off 16 overs.

Wem's batting didn't match their bowling as they were bundled out for 84.

Alex Wilkinson caused most of the damage by taking four for 38 while Freddie Fallows captured three for 25,

George Rhodes was on top form for Barnards Green as they drew with Walsall.

The former Worcestershire and Leicestershire all-rounder scored 116 runs from 135 deliveries as Green gave the home side a total of 245 to chase.

Mateen Khan scored 72 in response and despite Green taking nine wickets, the hosts managed to bat out their 55 overs to seal a draw.
