SINGLES were off the agenda for Matt Lamb as his unbeaten 67 consisted of nothing but boundaries as he guided Barnt Green to victory at Kidderminster.

Green made it three games unbeaten as they secured an impressive success at Chester Road.

Lamb starred with both bat and ball as the visitors claimed a seven-wicket win last Saturday.

Lamb took three wickets for just 13 runs in his five-over spell as the hosts were bowled out for just 149.

Progress was slow for KCC with wickets falling regularly and at 71-8 the home side looked set for an early finish.

However, Liam Weston (47 not out) and Chris Steele (31) batted steadily to make the score moderately respectable by putting on 77 for the ninth wicket.

In reply, Green lost the prolific Ed Pollock for a first ball duck but there was little consolation to follow for KCC as Reediy Amin (55) and Lamb (67 not out) made short work of the Kidderminster bowling to reach the winning target in the 25th over for the loss of just three wickets.

Skipper Darrel Williams was full of praise for his players after another big win.

He said: "The bowers did brilliantly and played the wicket really well.

"They hit the right areas and got the ball nibbling around and were rewarded. Anything under 200 would have been brilliant so to get them out for under 150 was superb.

"We've got Andy Sutton bowling really well, Adam Hines is dangerous with the new ball and it was great to have Matt Lamb available to bowl. He's had a few injury issues and has only been batting recently so it was a big bonus that he could bowl on Saturday.

"His innings with the bat was also extremely good. He was hitting it all around the ground and the bowlers didn't know where he was going to go next.

"He also never had to run a single and just hit boundaries. It was great to watch."

Green then backed up Saturday's success with seven-wicket victory over Ombersley in the T20 Challenge Cup quarter-final.

They will now welcome fifth-placed Walsall to Cherry Hill Road this Saturday (noon start) as they look to build on their solid start to the Birmingham and District League Division One.
