After some last minute changing of personnel, KGGC 1’s arrived at Coleshill with Nick Patel deputising for regular skipper Tommy Patel as he was stuck in Greece on holiday as a result of a delayed flight.

KGGC batted first and Charlie Goodwin and Ashish Patel put on a steady 38 for the first wicket before Charlie tried to repeat a big 6 and was caught for 17.  Ashish (31), Patrick Searing (13) and Himanshu Jansari (15) all made useful contributions,  but the key partnership of the innings was between Johnny Patel and Dharak Pandya, who put on 122 together in just 13 overs!!! Dharak having hit 3 huge 6’s finally was caught for 50, while Jonny went on on score a chanceless 137, ensuring that KGCC amassed an impressive 308 for 9 of their allotted overs.

In reply Coleshill never looked like challenging that score and some accurate seam bowling from Mike Widdowson (4-40) and Priyam Desai (3-52) regularly keep chipping away at the Coleshill batting order. Johnny Patel chipped in at the end with 2-6 to finish the Coleshill innings off and leave KGCC with an impressive and comprehensive first win of the season.
