Barnards Green have been knocked out of the Birmingham and District League T20 competition after a 53-run home defeat to Ombersley.

Opener Taylor Cornall carried his bat through the 20 overs for the visitors, scoring 104 from 66 balls as Ombersley gave Green a target of 188.

Ryan Tongue's 66 gave Green hope but they couldn't keep the run rate high enough and eventually fell well short as Green exited the competition.

Despite the disappointment, their league form continues to improve as they beat Dorridge by seven wickets in the Birmingham and District Premier Division Two.

Captain Ash Brewer won the toss and chose to bowl first, a decision that proved a good one.

Dorridge reached 18/1 before a devastating spell of seam bowling reduced them to 36/7.

Zain Ul-Hassan first bowled Luke Horgan and then had Joe Dodd caught behind for 8.

In the 8th over Jack Mackintosh trapped Mohammed Taluker lbw for 11 before Ul Hassan then took two wickets in the 9th over as Ben Shepperson and Zakariya Paruk fell.

Mackintosh then had Daniyal Khan and Perry Derrick caught.

Chris Wright and George Sich put on 23 before Wright (6) was clean bowled by Ul-Hassan giving him his fifth wicket.

The innings ended when George Rhodes bowled Safian Mir for 2 – leaving Dorridge all out for 70 in the 27th over.

The Green reply faltered a little when Ben Sutton was bowled by Chris Wright in the first over and Jack Mackintosh was trapped lbw for 8.

George Rhodes and Ollie Halion came together with the score on 11-2 and took the score to 30 before Rhodes was caught but Ul-Hassan joined Halion and they secured victory.
